    This guy is a brilliant caring surgeon. When I was told by multiple Doctors my cervical spine was to far gone to fix he fixed it. Caring visited me in the hospital. Explained to me the issues that were wrong and showed me on my MRI. I went to other Doctors who didn't even know what they were looking at. I highly recommend him and his P.A Mona Sater is incredible. If you need cervical Spine surgery go to a neurosurgeon not an orthopedic do your self a favor and check out Dr. Rapp and his staff

    He has done 2 surgeries on my back and was late for both of those. Have had 6 office appointments. Waited 1/2 to get called back for 2 of these days. An hour wait for 2 of these days. 1 1/2 hours for 1 day and these were just the waits in the waiting room and not the extra time I waited in the room. Last time after waiting 1 hour 15 minutes and not seeing any of the 3 people before me come out yet. I said I needed to reschedule. Was told wouldn't be till end of next month. I just walked out.
