Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19. For the time being, our office is temporarily closed until mandated otherwise. We hope that you understand the goal, which is to save resources which are needed urgently elsewhere and to protect our patients and the community.

In the interim, skincare purchases can be made with a “no contact pick-up” and virtual consultation appointments will continue to be available with our Nurse Injectors and Dr. Shapiro. Please call our office at 480-451-1700 or fill out our contact form to coordinate these appointments.

Our Virtual Consultations are performed using Zoom Video Conferencing, conducted in our office with Dr. Shapiro’s surgical nurse at his side. Click here for specific instructions and information on how to prepare for your appointment and understand what to wear for body procedure evaluations.

We appreciate your flexibility and support during this time and we look forward to continuing to serve you with excellence and efficiency.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
