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.

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.

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.

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.
