Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was excellent, I received a thorough attentive exam. While I appreciate that immensely, I was unprepared for the amount of time I would be spending. I booked the appointment through ZocDoc and recognize there are gaps in that process, and will opt to make appointments directly with doctors in the future. While Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was excellent, I was not pleased by the environment. The space is shared with many doctors, is frenetic and noisy, inclusive of young children, as there are pediatricians that share the space. I was also uninformed and unprepared for this, and am uncertain if I'll continue here.

The doctor was very nice and thorough while working with me to find the right prescription for my 4th nerve palsy. My double vision is not severe so it can be challenging to pinpoint the exact right prescription strength, but she was very patient.

I have seen over for several years. She is said to be very good. I think she is thorough looking for cataracts. But never much for any in-depth question or conversation. She seemed totally ignorant of blue-violet light effects on the retina, today, when I asked why she didn’t tell me about this issue in 2017.

Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was good but the waiting experience was rather long. I arrived for my 8:45AM appt and was about the first one there. After a consultation with the nurse, I had to wait in a waiting room for 30 minutes for the Dr who yelled for me from the exam room... I met with her and she seemed to be confused why i had headaches using the computer so much with my glasses, we found my RX was wrong so obviously that was the reason, but I kind of had to explain that to her. She also left the room briefly and talked about me and my eye issues rather loudly to another dr in the next room and I could hear the whole thing... I felt that was a little unprofessional. All in all I was there for 2.5 hours between waiting and seeing the Dr. It was a rather long wait, I think they book too many people at a time which makes the waiting process very long. I will most likely go back to this Dr as they take my insurance and the office is overall nice, just hope every check up does not take this long! And hoping my new glasses RX fixes everything.

She had very poor bedside manner. Not particularly nice or polite in any way. While I found her exam thorough I found her very abrasive. I also waited 45 minutes for her to see me and she spent 5 minutes with me. I will not be back.

Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was quirky (in a good way) but quite dismissive. She insisted that the pain I was feeling in my eye could not exist based on her examination - even though my pain was very real. She prescribed me something and told me to return in a few days to see another doctor. The prescription she provided me with did nothing even after taking the dosage for the recommended length of time. I researched a natural remedy for my symptoms and within 2 days I was 100% cured.

Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg is both very nice and no-nonsense. She is thorough, answers all questions and is cognizant of your insurance issues in light of prescriptions. Her staff is extremely polite and professional. The only drawback is the wait time. Even with an early morning appointment, it's a wait to see the assistant who measures your eyes/glasses/applies drops. However, in light of how down-to-earth the doctor is, it's worth it to me.

She's got a quirky personality. Definitely seems good at her job and asks a lot of questions about what's bothering you. No nonsense though. They have a lot going on at any given time also so while I was seen within 10 minutes of arriving for my appointment I didn't get our of there for 75 minutes, which was unexpected.

I had to check in again, even though I was checked in via ZocDoc, which defeats the purpose. I got an initial screening by an optometrist after waiting 25 mins. Then, I was left to wait, with my pupils dilated for an extra 40 mins. Overall, if an appointment is set at 9:45, it shouldn't take so long to see the doctor. The doctor was great. Excellent bedside manners.

The wait time at this office was absurd. My appointment was at 2:45pm and I wasn't seen until after 4pm. Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg didn't listen to me, interrupted me, didn't answer my questions satisfactorily. I will not return.
