Patient Comments (2)

I felt so upset after my first visit with Dr vapnek. He cut me off he argued the diagnoses that was given to me in 2012. Without even giving me a examine . he cut me off when I would speak. As a women who suffers from IC . I did not feel he was understanding. I will not ever go back to see him...more
