The staff that work under Dr. Wapnir seem very unhappy working with her. The receptionists and assistants are super stressed out. Her nurse quit. The anesthesiologist had a meltdown right in front of me because he couldn't take any more of Dr. Wapnir's behavior. As a patient, I found Dr. Wapnir to be extremely uncommunicative and, frankly, bizarre. She treated me like I was a specimen -- not a human being.

I don't think anyone going to see Dr Wapnir is a happy person at the present time so I know she deals with a lot of emotional people, including me. I had a very difficult time accepting I had cancer and she always encouraged me but in an honest way. She left my breast looking pretty darn good considering all it went through. I trust Dr. Wapnir completely, and I'm a tough customer believe me. I'm an NP so I've known a few doctors in my life, and I know a good one when I see one, and Dr. Wapnir is outstanding! I go to her for everything concerning my cancer, imaging, meds, etc because I couldn't find anyone I trust like I trust her. I'm willing to drive 1 1/2 hours to see her because I know I'm getting superior care. She's the complete package- superior surgical skills with a wonderful bedside manner. Definite recommend!
