"I highly recommend western mass endo. Very professional, efficient, kind and pain free. I've had a few root canals and this was by far the best experience I've had. I want to thank Dr. Shapiro, Rachel and the rest of the staff for a great experience."
"First time to their office. Had a root canal done. Dr Shapiro and staff were great during the entire procedure."
"From first contact by phone, to office consult, to work completed: the office staff (Erin and Shannon), dental assistant Rachel, and Dr. Eric Shapiro, were professional and focused, addressed every concern, answered every question, put me at ease, and treated me with kindness and respect. As with most people, I am very anxious about dental procedures. My fears were acknowledged and accommodations were made as was possible; I felt safe and cared for. This was the best endodontic experience I've had by far -- pain free, efficient, and it took much less time than I thought it would. I highly recommend Dr. Shapiro at Western Mass Endo in West Springfield."
