Dr. Wafapoor was extremely professional and very thorough with his examines and explaining what was wrong and needed to be done. His staff is also very professional and the experience in both Naples and Fort Myers office was wonderful.

Generally good care but he must be an important man. I was kept waiting more than 30 minutes after my appointment time then shunted onto a second packed waiting room after tech screening exam. Another excessive wait for follow up procedure.
