My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As your personal physician, it gives me great pleasure to better serve your healthcare needs. My MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice focuses on wellness and prevention with a proactive approach. I feel strongly that engaging my patients and educating them about their health enables and assists with informed decision making.

I am board certified in family medicine and have a broad range of additional medical interests. Through my years of experience as a family practitioner, I have been devoted to treating patients with care and compassion, a philosophy that is affirmed by my affiliation with MDVIP. 

My medical assistants and I have earned exemplary recognition for our use of patient-centered, coordinated patient care processes from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

The MDVIP model of practice helps me to offer more personalized healthcare; it helps develop closer doctor-patient relationships. I am also able to help formulate a wellness plan that is suited for you. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments.

My practice is near West Houston, and patients come from a variety of locations, including Katy, Sugar Land, the Inner Loop, Spring Branch and Memorial areas, among others. I am a member of the Memorial Hermann healthcare network, enabling me to offer my patients a wide range of resources.

Dr Shapiro is one in a million. While I have multiple stories I could share from over the past several years, one recent story stands out. Most recently I have been quite sick and Dr Shapiro has been the guiding light in my journey. He is always there when I need a sound second opinion, referral or a friendly ear. Not all doctors listen like Dr Shapiro. I have many, many, many doctors but Dr… See more

My wife and I have been going to Dr. Shapiro since the 1980's. He has always been kind and very patient with us. I have never felt rushed with him, even before he joined MDVIP. It's great to have a doctor 24/7. He is wonderful about returning calls over the weekends.

He is a very knowledgeable man and I trust… See more
