Patient Comments (3)

Doctor is great. Staff is horrible. They will not notify you if your appointment has been moved or cancelled which is extremely frustrating, considering I’m an hour and a half away from the hospital

Dr Rapuano was very thorough and informative. He took his time and was genuinely concerned. My appt. Was at the end of the day and he made sure that every one of my questions was answered. His staff were very friendly as well.

When I was referred to him, I only could see light and dark with my left eye. After his treatment, my vision returned. Although I still have a scar on my cornea, after getting cataract surgery, my vision is now 20/20. He is a wonderful doctor, very friendly. I couldn't imagine a better doctor.
