27/03/13 1 1 1 2 The equipment is old & does not work properly; Supplies are inadequate; The Staff & Doctor do not practice proper infection control; The office, staff & doctor are disorganized; The doctor, staff & office are not sanitary enough for this type of work so catching an infection from this office or staff is likely; it's unfortunate because the doctor knows his urology but ruins it by all of the above & you can catch an infection infection that you never had.  Respond

26/10/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Vapnek was superb. This was my first visit to a urologist and I was scared. Dr Vapnek first chatted with me in his office, then took me to a room for an examination. Kind, caring, extremely competent is Dr Vapnek. He is low key, pleasant and friendly. I highly recommend him

27/05/09 2 1 5 5 Dr. Vapnek is the best!!! Kind, caring, and knowledgable. The wait in his office can go up to an hour+ so bring a book. But that's because he takes time with each patient, and for every minute I wait I know he's taking extra time that he'll also take with me and that's worth the wait. You can't do any better than Dr. Vapnek. I recommend him very highly!!!

09/09/08 5 4 5 5 When searching for a MD you often have to choose between between someone who is smart and knowledgeable, or someone who is nice and compassionate. However, in Dr. Vapnek's case, you actually get both!! Doesn't rush his diagnosis. And puts you at ease with conversation.
