Patient Comments (1)
in Brooklyn, NY |
I developed a problem with my left eye and was referred to the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in NYC. The Infirmary was very insensitive in attending to my problem. In my anxious state a friend referred me to Dr. Crapotta. Upon visiting his office I was overwhelmed by the warm reception from both Dr. Crapotta and his staff. In a few short weeks Dr. Crapotta was able to resolve the problem with my eye. I would highly recommend Dr. Crapotta to anyone who is looking for quality care.
