Dr. Rappoport performed surgery on my lower back approximately 9 years ago. His work made a tremendous difference in my quality of life. An excellent surgeon.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rappoport for about five years now. He is an outstanding Doctor that was willing to help after several doctors said there was nothing they could do. The staff is outstanding. I recommend him to anyone that says they have back pain.

The surgery gave no relief. He said it wasn't his fault. I sat for an hour on a follow yo appointment without seeing the Dr or told why. Some called later to apologize by telling me I should have made my appointment at a different time. So it was my fault.
