What Patients Say:

Care for pregnancy…

“Virginia helped me discover the power of my pelvis! She not only restored strength, balance, and alignment during the final stages of my pregnancy, but also encouraged the optimal conditions for baby and birth! Thanks to her care, I went into my birth with confidence, knowing that she had gotten to the root of my discomfort. And I am proud to say that my little one came out happy, healthy, and head first.”

—Abby Phillips Metzger, science/research writer, Corvallis

Chronic pain and digestive distress…

“When I came to Dr. Shapiro I was literally at the end of my rope. I was sick, depressed, anxious, and experiencing so many digestive problems I had become seriously limited on where I could go and what I could do.  Let me say that Virginia is a miracle worker! And that’s not hyperbole. She helped me to heal my long-term gut imbalances and restore my naturally energetic and happy way of being in the world again. Step by step, she’s worked through the various layers of imbalances and chronic illness that had taken such a terrible toll on my life for the previous three years. She helped me move from sick and despondent to happy and thriving in less than a year. In short, she gave me my life back. And for that, I’ll be forever grateful.”

—Victoria Smith, Independence, life alchemy coach & mentor

My life changed…

"Two and a half years ago I had a severe medical crisis that hospitalized me for several days at OHSU with severe dehydration from a gut disorder. For the next several months, I would have to go to the Emergency Room with acute dehydration. My symptoms were treated but no one new the cause of my distress. Then a friend recommended that I see Dr. Virginia Shapiro. My life changed. Virginia diagnosed me and began treating me. She changed my diet and prescribed supplements. I feel good and have great energy."

Thanks to Dr. Shapiro, I am healthy!

—Mary Lou Mate, Newport, Oregon

I have benefited so much…

"Virginia is the most knowledgeable, comprehensive, thorough, efficient, considerate, respectful, and caring physician with whom I have worked in 45 years of working with holistic healthcare physicians.  I gladly drive 700 miles round trip to work with her as often as needed because I have benefited so much. Everything about her practice is a creation of healing love and service."
—Mariya Masters, mental health counselor, Friday Harbor, Washington


I feel better than I have in years…

"Arthritis, fatigue, digestion issues and weight gain brought me in to see Dr. Shapiro. Many doctors could not make a diagnosis, so I had given up on finding answers. Because Dr. Shapiro spent time understanding my background, environment and lifestyle, she was able to diagnose Hashimoto’s and toxic body burden and treat the underlying causes. I feel better than I have in years, and the people around me have noticed my health improving, too."
—Mara, graduate student, yoga instructor, Katy, Texas


A medical detective and powerful healer…

"To me, Virginia Shapiro is a medical detective and a powerful healer. She not only carefully diagnosed and treated my cervical spine issues, but she also discovered the underlying root cause. I now am pain free and have much more mobility in my neck. Dr. Shapiro is ahead of the curve in health care."
— Ann Schauber, professor emeritus, Oregon State University, Corvallis

A trusted professional for holistic diagnosis…

I have energy again and am present…

“I had been chronically ill for 15 years and also suffered chronic hives for four years, chronic fatigue, severe skin conditions, MCS, liver failure, depression…the list goes on. Dr. Shapiro was very thorough and informative in her diagnoses and treatment suggestions. Two days after seeing her my physical pain started to subside. The next day my hives also went away. One week later the pain and many other symptoms completely subsided! My GI tract functioned normally for the first time in years! My skin has cleared up. Best of all I have energy once again and am present! Thank you for giving my life back! I thank you and my family thanks you!”
— Faith R., Seattle

I've learned to control pain…

“I had been unsuccessfully struggling with chronic pain and fibromyalgia for almost 15 years. Through her guidance I've learned to control the pain with diet, supplements, and chiropractic care instead of prescription medication. Virginia and Dan have huge hearts and a loving commitment to their patients,and this goes a long way to help with the healing process. I can highly recommend their office.”
— K. S., Corvallis

I've got my life back…

“Dr. Shapiro’s care has given me my life back. I was getting to the end of my rope, feeling so sick and tired all of the time. I was having such a hard time trying to make it through each day of work, caring for my young son, and life in general. Dr. Shapiro used a variety of modalities to get me back on track and feeling much better.”
— Kim R., marine biologist, Newport

A gifted diagnostician…

Virginia truly listens and responds to concerns…

In addition, she has skillfully managed several injuries, in each case significantly reducing my recovery time while addressing underlying vulnerabilities. She truly listens and responds to my concerns, and her approach is compassionate, holistic, and thorough. The depth and breadth of her knowledge continually amazes me. I highly recommend her work to anyone who is tired of the band-aid approach and is seeking deep healing.”
