Ms.

I loved the visit with Dr. Rapoport. I am 65 yo and it had been 42 years since I had such a great exerience with a doctor. Very gentle, very thorough visit and very careful listener. I wish all doctors would be as competent and attentive as he is.

Experience

My mom had possible 3rd nerve palsy. Took her to see him. I was worried about a brain tumor vs something else - all scary stuff. I had stepped out to put quarters in the meter. The doctor, without even introducing himself or me, told me the exam room was too small to please wait outside. My dad was allowed in the room with her. There was no one else in the office, my mom was his last patient. He seemed quite dismissive and didn't seem to notice. He had not begun the physical exam (I could understand the need for privacy) and was merely asking questions. His manner was quite harsh and dismissive.
