Dr Wapner is an excellent Orthopedic doctor. The fact that he uses bandages instead of crutches is a godsend as is his professional expertise and laid back personality. He is a charmer. I loved all his staff. My toes have never been happier!

waste of my time !

Big mistake going to see Dr. Wapner ! The P.A that came into the room first was horrible ! Went to Philly because N.Y hospital didn't take my ins. and was actually referred to Dr. Wapner by another doctor in N.J.He was so distant ! Did not even examine my ankle, looked at the cd of my x-ray and suggested a brace when i actually need a total ankle replacement. Because of me being too young for a replacement pretty much didn't seem interested in my case at all. What kind of doctor sits there does not examine you or even ask any questions ? Not a good one at all ! I should of paid more attention to the negative reviews such a big disappointment and waste of time traveling to him.HORRIBLE HORRRIBLE HORRIBLE !!!!!!!

STAY AWAY FROM HIM READ THIS IT COULD SAVE A LIFETIME OF SUFFERING

PLEASE READ THIS YOUR LIVE MAY DEPEND ON IT . This Dr. if it where my decision would lose his license. I am crippled as a direct result of outrageous incompetence , arrogance and not believing his patient . I presented with intense pain from a broken foot . Their was concerns from my previous Dr. that their was a very horrific and rare disease reflex sympathetic dystrophy that if not treated early can result in the most painful chronic disease next to certain terminal cancers . To quote the most prestigious hospitals If undiagnosed early leads can and does lead to a SEVERE reduction of quality of life and a lifetime of pain and suffering .IT IS THE DEVASTATING results of not catching this early that competent Drs. are diligent in looking for and diagnosing any patient who presents with burning pain not consistent with a soft tissue injury . Unbelievably Before I went THREE different Drs. warned me not to see him including a chief surgeon due to his arrogance, but he was the only one with an appointment so foolishly I went the WORST decision of my entire life . I told him from day one "and it was in my records" that I thought it was "rsd" due to intense burning pain. I went to him 7 different times . In each visit his resident would come in . I would ask to see him . When he came in to the room I would and I am not exaggerating spend an estimated four minutes with me ,just as I had been forewarned by THREE different of his colleagues. He had my two week old medical records recording concern I had the early stages of this crippling disease . Not only did he miss OBVIOUS signs of this crippling disease which could be due to incompetence or human error it is much worse than that . He went out of his way to write in my medical records I DEFINATELY did not have RSD. After 8 months of wearing a boot I could not take the pain anymore. I knew he was ignoring my insistence it was RSD . Finally he sent in his partner . She did a brief examination and immediately knew this was serious and I had RSD . He came in and coldly told me I had it and referred me to a pain Dr. I was angry and frightened. I asked him If I would become crippled and he again coldly and abrubtly said " I don't no " and was dismissed . I am sure he has never gave me a second thought . Well Wopner now you know ,I am crippled my life is ruined for no reason except in my opinion I am not a psychiatrist but in my opinion this diagnosis is obvious after seven visits . This guy is a conceited ,arrogant , raging narcissist who in not listening and or believing his patient ruined the quality of my life . My suggestion is "STAY AWAY " it could ruin your life . I Fight everyday to battle this for myself and those I love who are also impacted. Keith , SHAME ON YOU !!!!!
