David H Shapiro MD

At Medical Marijuana Treatment FL, Dr Shapiro’s goal is to give compassionate, professional and skilled care to his qualified patients looking to seek relief through medical marijuana.

While hemorrhoids and their complications are not listed specifically on the list of approved conditions for medical marijuana certification, these conditions can qualify you for certification via the provision for debilitating and chronic pain.

However, the benefits of medical marijuana reach far beyond for a multitude of conditions other than anorectal disorders and Dr Shapiro is equipped and ready to help.

I had a pleasant visit with Dr. Shapiro this morning. I must admit that due to a bad past experience elsewhere, I was apprehensive if not downright afraid. Dr. Shapiro put me at ease immediately. He thoroughly explained, with the use of visual aids, the procedure I would experience.It didn’t take long for me to realize that I was dealing with a high caliber professional who was more concerned with my well being than he was with the bottom line. I would recommend this gentleman without hesitation to anyone.read more

I am giving this office a three, because to be fair, if the HET procedure had worked the first time, or even the second time I would have given the office a five. But in both cases the bleeding returned after two weeks. The HET procedure is a viable procedure, using a device made by Medtronic, but Medtronic is clear that it is for grade 1 or 2 hemorrhoids. When I finally went to an anorectal surgery practice at Advent Health, they said I had grade 3 hemorrhoids, and that it was not that difficult to tell the difference between grade 2 or grade 3 hemorrhoids.My problem with my experience at HTCF is that on the first visit Dr. Shapiro did an exam, and said I was a good candidate for the procedure. After the first treatment failed, I came back for a second visit and he did not even examine me, saying that since he recommended doing it again there was no need for an examination in the office. To his credit, when I asked him how often the HET procedure was successful in cases like mine, he said 80%, so there was no guarantee.When I returned for a third visit after the second HET procedure failed, Dr. Shapiro took one look at my bottom without inserting any kind of an scope and immediately said it was obvious that the HET procedure would not work given that I had a prolapsed (protruding) hemorrhoid. It seems to me that if it was that obvious, and the HET procedure is only for grades 1 or 2, which are internal, he should have recognized that the HET procedure was not appropriate, before the first surgery. I liked Dr. Shapiro, even though he is my age, and I have been retired for 18 years. The procedure itself was done without anesthesia, and while it was a bit uncomfortable – for me about a 2 or 3 on a scale of 10, the discomfort was very brief…only for a few minutes while the procedure was actually being done. There was very little discomfort afterwards, and after the second procedure I drove myself the 2 hours back to where we live with no problem.In comparison to that, the third surgery that I had, at Advent Health, did require anesthesia, and was somewhat uncomfortable – again a 2 or 3 for me on a scale of 10 – for about 10 days afterwards, and required about 6 weeks to heal completely. But it worked beautifully. Interestingly, the Dr. who did it specializes in anorectal surgery, and seemed unaware of the HET procedure that Dr. Shapiro uses.So, bottom line (no pun intended) – if you have mild hemorrhoids, the HET procedure with Dr. Shapiro may be an easier and satisfactory way to go. But if you have significant blood running into the toilet bowl or your underwear on occasion, I would strongly suggest getting a second opinion before proceeding.read more

Well. It’s been a long time coming with this review. I just want to say his office assistant is wonderful and she was the best part of my overall experience. I haven’t been the same since I Received the HET procedure. It has been the hands down worst experience I have ever had. I would suggest receiving multiple opinions before committing to something I should have done the same thing but I had also been hospitalized and needed to have a procedure.read more

Dr. Shapiro gave me my life back with HET. He is the most compassionate physician I have met and really cares about addressing your concerns. His extensive training and experience enables him to break down complex histories into salient issues, then create a plan to address them.read more

So… I had no appointment today but called the office and Sara(h)* made it happen. When I entered the office I expected to feel super awkward but instead was greeted with warmth and kindness. Sara(h)* and Dr. Shapiro had me laughing in no time. I am big on reading reviews before I see a new physician and Dr. Shapiro’s Google reviews are spot on! I can honestly say that if I could I would give this doctors office 10 🌟’s! During the exam Dr. Shapiro made sure to check in with me and make sure I was comfortable and even sat me down to show me slides. I know that people out there have it worse then me but I was made to feel like a priority. Before leaving I had a follow up appointment scheduled and was told that if I needed to come in before that they would make the time. MANY THANKS HTCF❤ 🙌👏👍😊read more

I was recently treated by Dr Shapiro and highly recommend him. I have been putting of surgery for many years after reading reviews and first hand accounts of the procedure however after a recent flare up I worked up the nerve to make and appointment. I was able to get in to an appointment and be treated right away, just before a holiday no less. Sara and Dr Shapiro both were professional and helpful. Thank you!read more
