I'm just wondering if some of the people who wrote these unfavorable reviews go to the same Dr Jeffrey Rapkin my husband & I do??? This man is so very knowledgeable & explaines everything so well. He makes sure you understand what is going to happen everytime. His staff is very caring and explains all proceedures very well. So very happy that he was recommended to us by our optometrist. He has done so much for both of us. We trust him completely. We drive from Ohio to recieve his excellent care
Muncie, IN |
Never. Was NOT told prior to appointment I'd need a driver and my eyes would be dilated. They didn't care. Saw several people with same problem having appointments,cancelled due to this. Staff very unfriendly and Dr. Very abrupt. I was not comfortable nor did I feel any trust. Patient's comfort NOT a priority.

He's a complete .... with no bedside manor. I'm a veteran with anxiety and he had no patience with me treated me like a 5year old all because I couldn't keep one eye open. It's 2nd time I'm there for same issue and it's still not resolved. I'd rather deal with the metal in my eye than see him again
Muncie, IN |
I had an eye problem for the last couple of months. Dr. Rapkin got me in right away and he very helpful and nice. His staff is outstanding, kind and made me feel very relaxed when I was nervous. Dr. Rapkin did a good job explaining what was going on with my eyes and answered all of mine and my husbands questions. I will recommend him to my friends and family.
in Bluffton, IN |
My brother was transported by ambulance from Ball Hospital to see Rapkin on a Sunday. Dr. Rapkin was extremely upset that my brother, who was in a hospital gown, didn't have his insurance card (it was at the hodpital). Dr. wanted to know how he was going to be paid. After lecturing the paramedics about bringing people over without payment information he turned my brother away untreated. He had to be transported to Indianapolis to see a specialist as a result. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!
