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 treatmenthe 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.

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 thewait time, but that can be explained by the complex patient before me who clearly took up more time than usual.

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.

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 andcalled in a prescription on a Friday evening. Great overall experience.
