Dr. Daniel Shapiro’s Journey

Dr. Shapiro started out by receiving his undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Arts, from Occidental College in Los Angeles, California. When he graduated, he moved to Tucson, Arizona where he attended the University of Arizona School of Medicine. He finished medical school in 1984 and was accepted into an Ivy League general surgery internship at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. There he studied under some of the best surgeons in the country, allowing him to hone his interest in surgical procedures into a real artform. It was his education at the University of Virginia combined with his innate talent that gave him a chance at achieving true greatness.

Dr. Shapiro's internship at the University of Virginia lasted for a year. In 1985, he left to enroll in a general surgery residency at the University of Connecticut's Hartford Hospital. He spent 5 years there, treating patients and developing his skills, proving himself every step of the way, allowing him to earn a spot in a prestigious residency and fellowship in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Cornell Medical Center's Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. There he put his skills to use finding ways to help those who needed him most, until 1992 when he moved back to Arizona and opened his own practice in Scottsdale.
