Dr. Rappaport truly did a truly wonderful job restoring my wife's vision to normal values. The preparation, surgery, and follow up was almost effortless. I can most definitely recommend Dr. Rapport to any patient needing to restore their vision. Thank you for your care, concern, and gentle demeanor. You are a doctor's Doctor. Sincerely, Dr. Ron Chernov
