We regret to inform you that Dr. Barry Shapiro, Westmed Otolaryngologist (ENT), passed away on Friday, March 2, after an accident resulting from last week’s winter storm.
We are deeply saddened to share this news with you, as Dr. Shapiro had been part of the Westmed family since 2011 and was an extraordinarily talented otolaryngologist, beloved by his patients. After being in private practice for many years, and serving as chief resident of otolaryngology at Mount Sinai Medical, and director of residency training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Shapiro quickly became an integral part of our practice. We will truly miss him.
Dr. Barry Shapiro’s family would like to invite his patients to attend the funeral services being held on Tuesday, March 6th at the Congregation Sons of Israel (1666 Pleasantville Road, Briarcliff Manor NY), which will begin at 1:00PM.
For those wishing to do so, Dr. Shapiro’s family requests that donations be made to the American Friends of Magen David Adom, an organization comprised of Israel’s national ambulance, blood bank, and disaster relief services, in lieu of flowers. Donations can be made in Dr. Barry Shapiro’s memory by following this link: https://afmda.org/

You can schedule an appointment with any of these providers by dialing (914) 848-8070, or visiting www.westmedgroup.com/providers.
Again, it is with deep sadness that we share this news with you.
