Have a case of dry eye problem, in which I was able to book an appointment quickly through Zocdoc. They calledto confirm my appointment the day prior to the appointment. Showed up, did an exam, he asked me various of questions, listened to my concerns, then wrote me prescription and explained how to use it. Having a follow-up in 2 weeks, but in-and-out quickly with no issue.

Dr. Pape was incredible. He truly is a pro and made me feel so at ease. He answered all my questions and didn't make me feel rushed at all. There was a miscommunication with the receptionist so I left thinking Iwas done and he called me on his personal cell to give me more information and make sure I had everything I needed. He cares about his patients deeply and it shows. I will never go to another ophthalmologist. Thank you Dr. Pape!!!

Dr Pape is very knowledgeable and extremely thorough & methodical. I have confidence in his recommendations. He does a complete evaluation regardless of why you scheduled the appointment. I just wish the appointment didn't take 3 hours fromarrival to departure. It's a definite issue with the practice and many other opthamologists offices in Manhattan.

Dr. Pape is extremely amiable and thorough.The first time I ever saw him I had dilated my own pupils with eye drops accidentally. Convinced I was going blind he was the closest Ophthalmologist I could find. He was extremely kind ashe explained to me what I had done but still conducted many tests to ease my mind and rule out other options.

I ended up leaving without being seen after being told that wait time would be over 30 minutes. I was told that next time I should call ahead to check for delays in the doctor’s schedule. Slightly ridiculous.

I don't write reviews about anything but I feel compelled to write a review about Dr. Pape. I am dealing with an issue where I've had 4 chalazia in as many weeks. Chalazia are large red bumps that form on theeyelid and are both ugly and uncomfortable. Working in sales this has impacted me on many levels. Dr. Pape was compassionate, explained things thoroughly and provided a treatment regimen that made sense - it is conservative in that he didn't want to do anything that could cause long term damage but aggressive in specific at-home remedies and tactics that would have an impact. Most importantly, he was accessible and supportive beyond anything I've ever seen. He provided his cell phone number and was texting me medical advice at 8pm. Truly the perfect balance of compassion and expertise. Thank you Dr. Pape!
