"I've been essentially blind my whole life and recently decided to get elective eye surgery. I unfortunately did not qualify for Lasik, but did qualify for PRK. Dr. Rapoport was fantastic - she explained all my options in detail and was very diligent in giving me instructions pre/post operations - even when I asked twice/three times. She's always available to talk and super empathetic. I could not recommend a better eye surgeon!"
~Mai V.



"Dr Rapoport is a skilled, knowledgeable, sincerely caring medical professional. I started seeing her a year ago and have since moved out of state. Regardless, it’s a priority for me to continue under her good care. I feel confident in her abilities - and it is my eyesight afterall!"
~Patricia J.



"This review is from Edythe Jablonsky, a Sjogren's sufferer, and patient of Dr. Rapoport's. For those that don't know, Sjogren's is a progressive disease that causes severe dry eye, as well as dehydration of other organs in your body. Dr. Rapoport is well-versed in the disease and its symptoms, and she treats every infection, irritation, and doctor's visit with kindness and professionalism. She is very thorough while being warm, kind, and gentle and her disposition is always very soothing, which means so much to me. She is always so supportive, whether by calling to follow-up on my progress or making herself available any time I have to contact her. No matter what the situation she is always patient and attentive . In essence, Dr. Rapoport's bedside manner makes an unbearable situation bearable. Bless her on her kindness and professionalism."
~Edythe J.



"After seeing Dr. Rapaport for three months I have experienced the greatest improvement for my dry eye syndrome than I have in the past 15 years. Dr. Rapaport is very knowledgable and caring. I am very grateful to her and her staff, in particular to Amy, who has been incredibly helpful to me. Everyone here conducts themselves in a highly professional manner, and they also run a tight ship in terms of timeliness. I have been seen every time without waiting any more than 5 minutes, and this I appreciate a lot. I feel very fortunate to be a patient at this medical practice."
~Helen K.
