Transcript:
Scott: Hi, my name is Scott Campbell. I authorize Dr. Shapira to use this video on the internet. My wife has been seeing Dr. Shapira for about thirty years. He helped her with a fibromyalgia problem and when I was diagnosed with sleep Apnea, Dr. Shapiro had a appliance alternative versus CPAP. I’ve been wearing the appliance for approximately one year now with a minor issue; I have a nickel allergy so the hook on there was giving my tongue some problems which we’ve so far fixed that. Wearing this appliance versus the CPAP has changed my life. I don’t snore anymore, I sleep much better, so this is probably one of the best things. If you can’t stand the CPAP machine, come see Dr. Shapira because he’s got a wonderful alternative.

Dr. Shapira: Great. Thank you very much.
