Don't go ladies!!

He's the worst Dr I've ever been to. I'm not sure if he just doesn't like women or is just incompetent. Besides the fact that he mistakenly removed the wrong kidney from a patient(Google it), he seems to have no understanding of the body. I've been a repeat long time UTI sufferer and while I was explaining my symptoms: constant burning pain, fever, sweats, back and body pain, bleeding urethra and extreme nausea. He actually responded "the nausea must be from something else, UTI's never cause nausea". And then just stared at me blankly. I mean every single GP and emergency room doctor seems to know this but a specialist doesn't? After I corrected him he just proceeded to be rude and act like he could care less. How are you supposed to trust a "Dr" that makes you feel like you're an inch tall in his eyes? Sitting there in desperate agonizing pain just shivering and sweating and he just said basically there's no bacteria in my urine so there shouldn't be infection and my nausea is from something else-pretty much treating me like I'm nuts. Trust me, you KNOW when you have a uti. I ended up just taking the antibiotics and anti nausea pills from my GP after calling them crying in pain after this guy pretty much refused to help me or even believe my symptoms. I have been turned off to urologists and stayed away from them for over a year and have suffered 6 more UTIs since (with nausea). I think it's time to stick the camera in there and do more tests to find out the cause because this torture has to end-I thought I was at the end of my rope before when I saw "The Vap". But I will tell you this; you couldn't pay me a million dollars to be in this man's office again.

This guy is a real piece of garbage

The post beneath mine giving Dr. Vapnek 5 stars is probably one of his friends. Very rude and has completely unjustified ego. A disgrace to the medical profession. His office staff is rude as well.
