Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Vapnek is an excellent listener, he addressed the issues I brought up, was sensitive to my concerns, and I appreciated his candor explaining why previously recommended treatment was clearly unnecessary.
I've been seeing Dr. Vapnek for years and he's very good at what he does without being an arrogant jerk.

Knowledgeable with a great bed side manner. Cares about you in a warm and sincere way
Dr Vapnek is terrific. He is thorough and forthright and kind.
Saw Dr. Vapnek for PTNS treatments. He is patient friendly, professional and caring. Timely and even early for my appointments. Courteous and helpful staff. The course of these treatments is once each week for 12 weeks but before the first treatment he was careful to inform me that if I was not experiencing improvement after 6 weeks or so, there would be no need to continue. His manner is not aggressive.
Returninng patient, this doc is awesome!
I felt in good hands. I wish I met him much earlier Emil D,
Dr. Vapnek is a terrific doctor, very professional but also has a great bedside manner.
I have seen a number of specialists over the past few years, Dr. Vapnek was personable and direct, answered all my questions and explained his process clearly and simply. The office was terrific as well, pleasant and efficient and clearly oriented towards the patient's best interests.
I would highly recommend Dr. Vapnek. He has a kind and pleasant demeanor which contributes greatly to his bedside manner. I was nervous to see a Urologist but he quickly put my mind at ease. The only negative would be the wait time, but that can be explained by the complex patient before me who clearly took up more time than usual.
Dr. Vapnek was warm, caring and thorough. Everything was explained by himself or his assistant, who was also kind and thorough.
Dr. Vapnek is an excellent doctor. He asks very pointed questions to try figure out the root of the problem not just treat the symptoms. He deserves his recognition as one of NY's best Urologists for 5 years running.
Dr. Vapnek is a top professional and a top urologist. Both my wife and I have had the good fortune to have met him and to be under his care. Extremely pleasant and kind, carefully explains matters at hand and answers all questions in a very simple and understandable way. Very reassuring to the patient indeed! Without hesitation we would recommend Dr.Vapnek
Dr. Vapnek is a very knowledge and thoughtful physician. He understood concerns right away and has a balanced approach to coming up with solutions. This was my first visit to him and I am looking forward to many more.

Extremely attentive, professional and courteous.
He is very pleasant, straightforward, and informative.
Smart and caring
I have been seeing Dr. Vapnek for years. He is the best. His staff is awesome. How many doctor's practices do you go to where the staff is there for over a decade? They always know you and warmly welcome you when you come for an appointment.
Very pleased with visit. Dr. Vapnek was very thorough and knowledgeable. Would recommend him highly.
Phenomenal. Curteous staff, friendly and knowledgable Doctor. Thank you so much.
Dr Vapek fulfilled all my expectations. He listened, diagnosed, reflected on my information, is continuig with a follow up of which he explained in detail. His manner invited confidence. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Vapnek and his staff are the very best. I live in DC but still come back to NY to see Dr. Vapnek.
Dr. Vapnek is a great doctor, very professional and down to earth. His staff is friendly, courteous and efficient and I am glad to be a long-time patient.
Very thorough and thoughtful. Answered all my questions and gave me a complete analysis of my problems. I would recommend Dr Vapneck to anyone needing urological care.
Great! This doctor is one of the best - always knowledgeable, helpful, and has an excellent personality!
He was knowledgeable and personable. I liked him. However, was so surprised at how slightly unkempt and small the treating rooms were.
He clearly presented me with my options, one of which I agreed to follow.
Very personable and knowledgeable. Helped out by email when out of town. Highly recommend
Dr Vapnek is very bright and personable with a great medical background. He was a good listener and gave me smoke time to explain my issue. Flat out told me, he could make more $$ running unnecessary diagnostics but doesn't. Would definitely recommend
I was referred to Dr. Vapnek by my GP. He was thorough, a good communicator, personable and accessible after the visit via phone and email correspondence. Dr. Vapnek followed up with the lab to get test results before the weekend and called in a prescription on a Friday evening. Great overall experience.
Excellent "bedside" manner. Took time to explain everything clearly. Easy to talk to
Excellent: witty, knowledgeable, efficient. Superb physician!
Knows his stuff, personable, and to the point!
Dr. Vapnek is the uroligist most men will want.
I am aware of the glowing remarks of other patients, however my experience was terrible. At first he seems very nice, friendly, and courteous to me. I explained my condition and he examined me. He explained all was needed was a minor procedure. No problem. However, two days after my procedure I noticed some issues. I emailed him my concerns and he told me how that could happen and how I should apply some cream to the area (a cream that he had told me right after the procedure not to apply) and to stretch the skin to prevent it from sticking together (something he forgot to mention to me after my procedure). Since then I have experienced bleeding, the last one being two weeks after my procedure! In my follow-up he said how it is a sensitive area and that may happen. That is new information to my ears. I am now going for a second opinion. I plan on never going back to Dr. Vapnek again.
Very professional, nice, and knowledgeable.
They were very attentive and professional. I had to have a flow test and the receptionist was very concerned about my comfort.
Awesome Doctor. I'd been to a few Urologists before him about what I thought was (and what was repeatedly misdiagnosed as) postatitis. I went thru hell for a year and took many un-needed anti-biotics. Dr. Vapnik got right to the cause and was as direct and open about everything as possible. It's rare you see a specialist like this, I couldn't recommend him enough.
My visit to Dr Vapnek has been excellent due to the warm and cordial reception as well as the professional attention from the Dr and his team. I am very satisfied and my wife will also visit him in the near future for check up.
He is good, but don't think he is thorough enough as I still have all the same unresolved issues as before I went to see him ...
Very professional and thorough examination. Easy to tak with and has excellent bedside manners.
I've been seeing Dr. Vapnek for years and he is very good at what he does! I have a spinal cord injury so having a urologist who understands neurogenic bladder/bowel is key. His bedside manner can be crude, but he is very helpful and approachable--even by email which is rare!
The office satff was a plesure to deal with. The doctor was pleasant and explained everything. His "bedside" manner was excellent.
Dr. Vapnek was very professional but with a sense of humor. I really appreciated that. Spent time, answered questions, and explained everything to my satisfaction. You should not hesitate to see Dr. Vapnek, I can't recommend him highly enough!
Personable, knowledgeable, a total pleasure. Great experience.
Dr. Vapnek is extremely knowledgeable and understanding of a patient's concerns. I know that I am in excellent hands.
Dr. Vapnek is my kind of doctor: thorough, professional, unhurried, humorous.
Dr. Vapnek is my favorite doctor. He knows what he is doing. He's very personable. He's also very funny which puts me at ease. Great doctor!
Very Nice Doctor.
Great visit as always. One of the best urologists in the city and ranked that way as well.
Cannot say enough how good this doctor is.
he is the best urologist I have ever visited.
he is very laid back, communicative and proactive. He's a great doctor but not arrogant! I've been seeing him for a few years and it's always a pleasant experience. The staff is really nice and accommodating!
Very attentive and friendly with a great sense of humor. Performed a thorough exam with additional tests such as ultrasound, etc.
Dr. Vapnek is very friendly and I felt very comfortable talking to him. He speaks to his patient like they are old friends but at the same time explains each step of the treatment clearly and is very thorough.
He's everything you would want in a doctor. Smart, warm, honest about medications, quick to understand the problem. And his staff is efficient and pleasant as well.
Good at what he does; a good medical partner
