About Dr. Shapiro

A trusted family doctor (in Archie's case. because he trusts Jewish doctors), Shapiro who delivered Gloria when Edith went into labor with her, and then Joey when Gloria went into labor with him 27 years later, also treated Archie, performing gall bladder surgery on him in the "Archie's Operation:Part 1" episode. In the "Archie's Operation" episode, Dr. Shapiro was assisted by a West Indian woman, a Dr. Wynell Thatcher (Vinnette Carroll), who winds up donating her blood, which is the same type as Archie's, in a needed blood transfusion, to his disbelief!
