Everyone was lovely, and so caring with my baby. Thank you everybody, Dr. Klapper and the Administrative Team.

Dr. Klapper & the staff that supports him are compassionate, professional & all very good at what they do. I have found my new Opthamologist!
He is best of breed.
Always a pleasure to visit Dr. Daniel Klapper. Knowing he's the best opthalmologist around, carrying on the tradition of his pioneering father, I have complete confidence in my treatment here. Dr. Klapper always initiates a social conversation with the patient before the actual examination begins. In these overloaded times we live in, this is unique. The waiting area is quiet with classical music softly wafting, and the office staff are efficient and personable. One's vision care could not be in better hands than at Dr. Daniel Klapper's practice.
He is both very personal and very professional at the same time.

Wonderful experience always!
Uncomfortable, untrustworthy, weird! The office was unpleasant!
Very professional! Thanks!
He was very professional, but also very personable. I went to him based upon a recommendation and I was pleased to have done so. Doing more than just telling me what these issue was, he explained why I was having the problem and even why he was prescribing the items that he did.
Being a first time patient at a new doctor you expect the appointment to be very quick and not very personable.. My first visit with Dr. Klapper was anything but that. He was extremely social, kind and most importantly informative. You could tell that he cares and was willing to spend whatever time was needed in order to make your visit one with a result of solution. He explained everything to me in terms I would understand. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Klapper after only one visit and will definitely be using him as my eye doctor from this point forward.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Klapper as he both listened intently to my concerns and very knowledgeably detailed a regiment for my care. I felt better immediately upon our time ending.
Great bedside manners
Dr. Klapper is smart and thoughtful and kind. Highly recommend.
He's my favorite doctor.
Dr. Klapper is an excellent doctor. I have recommended him to several people, and everyone is pleased with him. Just a very nice man who knows what he's doing.
He is a lovely man. My visits are always gracios , satisfying and enlightening.
Could not have gone better. Excellent Doctor.
A very thorough and thoughtful physician.
I've been seeing Dr. Klapper for several years now and he is great. He really listens to you and is genuinely concerned with your well being.
I have now been to Dr. Klapper twice - once for a regular eye exam and because I needed a new glasses prescription, and once to check the prescription because my new glasses were bothering me. I am a bit anxious about going to eye doctors, and Dr. Klapper was incredibly calm and reassuring. He was thoroughly professional while still being warm and caring. When I came back to check on my prescription (which was correct), he spent time figuring out and explaining to me what the problem was, and he never talked down to me at all. I am impressed by Dr. Klapper, and I highly recommend him. By the way, on the first visit, I waited for fewer than 30 minutes; on the second visit, I was seen immediately.
I was recommended to Dr. Klapper about 2 years ago and am very glad I have made him my eye doctor(switched from another practice in Paramus). He is extremely professional and thorough and at the same time has a wonderful, warm manner. Although he only has NJ office hours on Wednesdays, i have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see him. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an ophthalmologist.
Dr. Klapper is just lovely, caring and conscientious. Too bad more doctors are not like him.
I do not have words to describe how kind this doctor was. He also gave me a good explanation about my consultation. I really recommend him. You will not regret.
He is an excellent doctor and person.
It's always wonderful. Dr. Daniel Klapper is a thoughtful and kind doctor, who considers all options before suggesting the remedy. He listens to my concerns and offers all the help he can. I recommend him most highly.
Dr. Klapper is excellent. I have been seen g him for many years. I wouldn't go elsewhere.
Fantastic physician, will definitely be returning.
Dr. Klapper is a caring person. He takes his time with the examination. He listens to all of problems. I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Klapper
He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and kind.
He was extremely thorough and professional. I would highly recommend him.
I was recommended to Dr. Klapper a few years ago by a friend. I am thankful that I don't need to see an eye doctor more than once a year for regular checkup but most certainly looking forward to this appointment because Dr. Klapper is so one of a kind. A warm face to meet, always engaging conversation, gentle checkup and the whole experience is so pleasant.
Dr. Klapper along with the other doctors, and receptionist there were very friendly and patient. I do plan to return to him in the future.
Dr. Klapper was very friendly but professional. He showed compassion and apologizing for my pain, which very unusual. He was precise in my diagnosis as well as on solution. The following day we spoke again in order to check on my progress. He also recommended alternative treatement.
Dr. Klapper is a brilliant doctor. He is kind and caring. I cannot recommend him enough. Simply the best.
He was extremely knowledgable, and didn't push new prescriptions.
WAS VERY GOOD AND CARING I WILL HIGHLEY RECOMEND FRIENDS AND FAMILEY
He is an erudite and compassionate man. I have enjoyed a meeting of the minds with him and his late father for over 20 years on a variety of subjects. They have gotten me over a phobia of eye doctors. Their staff, however, should be quicker to ask after the patient than his or her insurance card or from where the money is coming. I understand about "running things like a business," but these are the only eyes I have, and I am nervous. It's better than one office manager, who treated every woman as if she were a housewife who could come in at 10 or 2. I almost left because of her. The docs need staff worthy of them.
very interesting, congenial, pleasant.
As always I was satisfied, and reassured that my condition was not sight threatening. Dr. Klapper Made a follow-up appt. with a specialist for me to make sure that my eyes are alright.
Dr. Klapper is a very compassionate clinician who makes you feel like you are in very good hands.
Dr. Klapper is a caring and respectful professional...he did not rush the appointment. Made caring recommendations about other areas of medicine. I was very impressed.

Dr. Klapper is very caring and explains everything clearly and not in a rushed manner.
I found Dr. Klapper to be courteous and professional. I didn't feel rushed and he was very thorough.
I was just in for a check up.The tests themselves were straightforward.Dr Klapper reviewed the results and discussed them in an understandable way.
Dr. Klapper and his staff are excellent and efficient in taking my appointment and in the examinations themselves. He is not afraid to answer what you think are stupid questions. He remembers the little personal things about his patients on each visit no matter how long it had been. Highly recommend!
Dr. Klapper is wonderful in every way, professionally and personally.
I've been to several ophthalmologists over the years, and Dr. Klapper rates very high with me. It was a very satisfactory experience.
Very thorough...spent time examining me, did not feel rushed
Dr. Klapper is wonderful, I always know my eyes are in the care of a great Ophthalmologist.
Very good eye doctor. Efficient, good at diagnoses and a nice guy.
I waited too long, but he apologized and he's so nice and knowledgable that I soon forgot about it. He's great.
My entire family have been patients of Dr. Klapper for years (I am almost 30, and my mother is in her early sixties). He is extremely intelligent, skilled, and is both kind and funny while remaining completely professional. I give him (and his lovely assistant Ruthie!) the highest accolades and would recommend him to anyone seeking a truly excellent, intuitive, shrewd dermatologist!
always a pleasure!!
Dr Klapper is an amazingly good doctor, who immediately makes you feel comfortable in his office. He always greets you by name and with a smile. He looks at you, and listens carefully to what you have to say. He treats you with respect and with the utmost care. And he has heart, his goodness shines!! He is thoughtful about his diagnosis , being conservative about trestments, considering all options with you before recommending a course of action!! Dr Klapper is my Opthomologist , my good doctor- I am fortunate to have been recommended to him, and so I heartily recommend him
Absolutely outstanding! I was visiting from Boston. The administrative assistant agreed to fit me into a fully-booked schedule. In only 30 minutes, Dr. Daniel Klapper was able to diagnose a serious problem in my right eye, and to give me the first dose of the first medicine. By 5:00pm, I had two doses of each medicine, and the redness was already all gone. The swelling was already going down too. In addition, Dr. Klapper smiled when he greeted me and had a pleasant demeanor. The office was air conditioned, with comfortable chairs, and the administeative assistants were competent and calm.
I've been going to Dr. Klapper for several years. I had a problem one evening when he was in his NJ office. He called me at home, made some suggestions and told me if my eye didn't feel better, he would make arrangements to see me that evening - after 9. Luckily for both of us, I felt better and was able to wait until the next morning to see him. While his staff could be nicer, he is worth forgiving their unsmiling faces.
He's an excellent doctor
Very personable and kind. Explained things well, took his time. My new favorite eye doctor!
Dr. Klapper is incredible, truly one-of-a-kind: caring, engaging, affable, sensitive and thoughtful. I had a great appointment with him and left feeling better already. He took lots of time to fully understand all that concerned me, and outlined a plan for going forward. I'm immensely grateful and will definitely be returning again. His assistants are fantastic as well.
Referred to Dr. Klapper because of an emergency eye injury to my 11 yr. old son. The Doctor was gentle, funny, fast yet thorough with a nervous child in great pain. He made us feel that he was in control and calm, so we calmed too. Best "blind date" with a doctor ever! If ever we need an opthamologist again - we have our regular doctor now. (Pediatric or adult)
CCC COLORFUL CLEAR COMPLETE I was impressed & satisfied
Dr. Klapper is my favorite doctor ever. I am amazed every time I see him how personable he is and how much he genuinely cares. It is such a relief to feel listened to and cared for in a city where those two things are rarities.
he was very thorough and sensitive toward the patient
I love Dr. Klapper. He is an excellent opthalmologist and has solved many a difficult eye issue I have had over the years. He is also a mensch and takes his time to listen to you.
Very friendly , helpful, made my daughter feel at ease and comfortable. Will definitely see him again.
I went to Dr,Klapper because of the high ratings, and so glad I did! My previous doctor had the worst bedside manner and was annoyed that I asked questions regarding my issue...Dr. Klaipeda was patient, friendly and knowledgable...so had to find a good doctor who is also kind--you know what a doctor is supposed to be!
I felt very good at the office. The receptionist is proficient and courteous, the technician was good too. The doctor was thorough, efficient, professional, and friendly. I will certainly continue to go there.
Dr Klapper diagnosed and remedied my issue. Service was professional and prompt. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Klapper is the consummate professional, exudes confidence and knowledge all the while being warm, friendly, interested and welcoming.
If every doctor had the kind and patient demeanor of Dr. Klapper, we would all be satisfied patients, no matter what the diagnosis.
I had a 1:30 PM appointment and was being screened by staff by 1:20 ! The exam began at 1:30. Dr. Klapper gave me options to avoid surgery and discussed the possible drawbacks .
Dr. Klapper is TERRIFIC!
Very friendly, professional doctor who has a great deal of knowledge.
Very pleasant. Very professional. What more can I say?
Very professional, great demeanor. No waiting time, too!

Very professional. Knows his stuff well. Works efficiently and treats you well.
I visited because my eyes were bothering me. Dr. Klapper took the time to listen to my symptoms, do an examination, and tell me what was going on by drawing me a little picture of my eyes. I would definitely recommend Dr. Klapper!
Best experience I've had with an eye doctor in all my life! Very attentive, kind and efficient doctor. Genuinely cared about me as patient and explained every step of the visit ! So knowledgeable and patient. Bringing my mother next week & recommending it to everyone! Best doc!

Dr Klapper is a great doctor.What a pleasant experience.I already recommended Dr Klapper to my friends.
Dr Klapper is an amazing doctor!.. His bedside manner is suburb, perhaps the best I have encountered. He really takes the time to thoroughly explain everything and provides reassurance. His office staff also very nice and efficient.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Klapper, but you would never know it. He and his team made me feel welcomed. Dr. Klapper treated me as if I was an old friend that he was happy to see. Throughout the exam he completely engaged me. I received 100% of his attention and never felt like he was rushing. He explained exactly what he was doing and why. He answered my questions in terms that even I could understand. He is exceptionally thorough and made me feel confident with the results of my exam. My only issue is that I don't need another exam for 2 years, which is too bad, because I would happily go back tomorrow. I fully recommend Dr. Klapper. It doesn't even require a second thought. Just go! Then you can send me a thank you note for encouraging you to see a great ophthalmologist.
He is extremely patient. He listens very well, and understands the problem. Exam is thorough. He impressed me with a unique and intuitive approach. He let me "help" him my letting me adjust the axis angle of my astigmatism. This eliminates much of the guess work and apprehension of going back and forth between "a" and "b", "one" and "two".... Great experience!
I liked him a lot. He was kind and knowledgeable and made a point to explain everything to me as he was doing tests.
Appointment on time, no waiting to speak of, obviously a very competent practitioner and likeable too!
Dr Klapper was so kind and compassionate with the difficult-to-diagnose problem I had. He went for conservative treatment, which I appreciate, since I did not want any radical treatments. He made sure I was taken care of, and I saw him doing the same for other patients. If you miss the old-school type doctors, who actually see you as a human being and not an insurance billing code, and don't rush you through the office, I can't recommend Dr Klapper highly enough.
He's been my ophthalmologist for a few years. He is an excellent doctor, explains everything to you and very personable!
Dr. Klapper takes time to explain, inform, and answer questions. He treats patience with respect and a calm manner that dispels all anxiety. My visit today met all my expectations for what good medical care should be.
best eye doc
He is truly a wonderful man. Caring, thorough, professional and just so pleasant to be around. He apologized for having me wait for a few minutes and told me to "think positive thoughts" while I waited. It was just to refreshing to see a doctor just be so human. All doctors should be so wonderful.
This was my first visit with Dr. Klapper; he was recommended to me by a friend. Dr Klapper listened carefully to my concerns about my vision (I have had progressives for about a decade and have never had adequately corrected vision). He noticed some problems that my previous doctor had never mentioned to me, formulated a plan to improve my vision correction and explained in detail his reasoning and recommendations. He was pleasant and attentive and took the time needed to address my concerns. I was very pleased.
He is efficient and a good listener. His advice on just the little things concerning my eye care and questions are always welcome.
Very nice doctor. Today was the first time I met him, yet he made me feel very comfortable and was friendly. Liked the fact that he complimented his staff a few times and they were not even there to hear it. Definitely recommend.
Dr. Klapper and his office staff were great. Very attentive to my needs and efficient. I heartily recommend him to new patients.

I was very impressed with Dr. Klapper. He was the consummate professional, highly intelligent, caring and compassionate. He was able to make me feel comfortable, and explain the rational for his treatment. He took the time to get to know the situation, and implemented the treatment plan in a measured and appropriate pace , one that would guarantee the best results. I would highly recommend Dr. Klapper both as a physician and as a person.
The doctor is nice and knowledgeable, but the wait time was too long: I had to wait for 40 min in the lobby before I was called by the technician to prep me, and then I spent 20 min in the exam room waiting for the doctor.
He was one of the most personable doctors I have ever met. I felt like I was talking with a friend!
Nice experience., very relaxing atmosphere.
An excellent experience. I'm glad I joined his practice.
