His staff helped fill out the forms for a new patient.He took his time, explaining each step of the exam and what each finding meant. I like his reassuring manner, he gave me a very thorough dilated eye exam, checked myvision and answered all my questions. As a solo practitioner, it's not a rushed mad house that some big impersonal offices are these days. His exam was extremely professional.

Dr. Klapper is a great find! I hadn't seen an eye doctor in years and went to Dr. Klapper for a general examination and eye glasses prescription. He did a great job, had a wonderful bedside manner and I felt stronglythat he knew exactly what he was doing. His office is very comfortable and the office staff was friendly and helpful. All in all, highly recommended!

Dr. Klapper has an excellent bedside manner - he remembers me each time I come and chats in a way that makes me feel completely at ease, even though eye appointments make me nervous. I also feel that he’s really sharpand would not miss anything when doing an examination. I also only waited about 5 minutes.
