Dr Lapkin was honest and personable, my surgery was very successful due to his skill in the procedure. Rather than a valve replacement , he was able to repair the existing valve.
in Aspen, CO |
Dr. Lapkin fits the stereotypical surgeon personality profile: arrogant and lacking bedside manner. He almost talked my mom out of our decision to have the surgery with his negative, discouraging and fear-inducing pre-surgery conversation by saying there was a 10% chance the surgery would be beneficial, after our main doc said the chances were 80%. We were in an emergency situation and did not get to choose a doc. The surgery had no complications. Glad we didn't let him talk us out of it.

Dr. Lapkin has to be one the worst doctors I have ever visited. While his background seems ok, there is something missing in his general demeanor
