"Exceptional job fixing a damaged tooth. The office was able to squeeze in my root canal before my vacation, with no hesitation. The staff was welcoming professional and clearly very good at what they do. Office is beautiful, bright and stocked with modern equipment. I have had two root canals in the past from a hockey injury, so was concerned about the amount of pain I might have to stick out. That said, Dr. Shapiro and his team made me feel completely comfortable and confident in the process from the second I was in the chair. I felt nothing. If I ever have to get work done like this in the future I will absolutely be back. The team at Western Mass Endo is as refined as they come. I can’t thank them enough. If you need a root canal, these are your people. -Tim"
"I was very impressed with Dr Shapiro who performed a root canal today. He took the time to explain the entire procedure while performing the procedure. I would give him an A+"
"Definitely recommend Dr Shapiro and the staff. Professional and pleasant group. Have received excellent care."
"I got right in for an emergency visit even though I had never been there before. The entire staff was extremely welcoming and very helpful. Dr. Shapiro was amazing. He did my emergency root canal so quickly and I did not feel a thing. My whole experience was a 10 out of 10."
"I just want to say that this was one of the best dental experiences I've had. The wait time was very minimal, I was able to get in, get my X-Rays done, have a scan done of the area, and have the Root canal performed very quickly. Dr. Shapiro was thorough with his explanations of what he was doing and kept all pain to an absolute minimum. Although dental work is not fun WME made it a lot more bearable. Also Dr Shapiro provided a follow up the next day to make sure the tooth was feeling good. Truly an amazing organization."
