    He spent about one minute looking at my eyes and dismissed all of my questions. He did not treat my condition correctly and I had to see another ophthalmologist days later.

    I went to Dr. Wapner on several occasions over the past few years and was continually told that I had a Vitreous Detachment, he failed to address the inflammation in the back of my eye, which another eye physician clearly diagnosed within weeks of a visit to Dr. Wapner. After visiting a retina specialist, I was diagnosed with a potentially blinding disease that Dr. Wapner failed to assist me with. I could have been treated earlier if I had been correctly diagnosed.

    I would not recommend him. He does not listen to patient concerns. He also does not explain things when you ask him questions.He shows little concern.

    I waited 35 minutes to see Dr. Wapner for no more than 3 minutes (I am not exaggerating). He still didn't understand the extent of my vision issues before he rushed out. Very disappointing since I have been having focusing issues for the past two months. I noticed there were 3 or 4 other patients that came in to see Dr. Wapner at the same time as my appointment. I don't know if they always stack appointments like that. The bright side to the whole appointment was a very competent technician.

    Likes what he does, and does it pretty well. The place is commonly crowded, what does that tell you? Like Yogi said, Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded. First class eye care.
