A New York native, Dr. Tapper attended Brooklyn College, where she was elected Phi Beta Kappa, won the prestigious Elise Tobin Award in Chemistry, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. After completing medical school at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Medical School, she attended the SUNY Health Science Center Downstate in Brooklyn for her ophthalmology residency, where she was selected Chief Resident in her senior year. After finishing her Ophthalmology residency, she completed a fellowship in glaucoma (also at the SUNY Health Science Center Downstate), where she then stayed on as an Assistant Instructor in Ophthalmology.

Dr. Tapper has been in private practice for many years. Most recently, she served as an attending physician in ophthalmology at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, from 2007 to 2010. Her areas of interest include general ophthalmology, no-stitch cataract surgery, laser eye surgery, and trabeculoplasty. She enjoys general ophthalmology because it allows her to spend time with her patients and form close relationships with them.

Dr. Tapper was quite concerned because I had my yearly exam a few months ago. She asked probing questions and listened as I answered and designed the course of treatment. I highly recommend her because she is direct and professional.

I would never come here again. After waiting 15 minutes just to see anyone, I then had to wait another half hour to see the actual doctor. She then tried to ask me about my job for five minutes before starting the exam when I was clearly in a rush.

The staff overall is professional, the doctor herself is extremely warm and welcoming. I was a little intimidated by the large waiting room area and amount of patients in the office (expecting a long wait time), but everything was done very efficiently and I had very minimal waiting time between my initial consultation, seeing the doctor, and running a test. The doctor was very patient with me, heard my concerns, explained everything, gave me health advice, and generally set my mind at ease. I would definitely recommend her to my friends. Being able to book on ZocDoc is a great bonus.

Dr. Tapper and her staff took time to conduct a thorough exam, and get to the bottom of my eye issue. I was very pleased with the visit, from start to finish. She knows her stuff, and it shows. She will be my regular eye doctor going forward.

The doctor was nice herself was nice, but the office was a packed zoo. Over 30 people waiting when I got there for my appointment at 10:45. I wasn't seen until well after 12pm. I would not recommend going here at all if you have something to do during the day.

I liked Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg. She's a no-nonsense professional. Unfortunately, she's working in an office that values its time more than its clients'. When I got to the office, I asked the receptionist if she was running late, and could get no answer. I was taken in for the preliminary exam right away, then put into a secondary waiting room. An hour later, I got to see the doctor. I'm going to look for another practice. As much as I like the doctors, they need better time management skills.

The appt was great. She made me feel better about my infection and definitely did a thorough job to examine the possible cause. However, do not go in the middle of the afternoon. I arrive at 245, was seen by a nurse or associate rather quickly, making me think the wait time would be short, and then proceeded to a second waiting room where I sat for over an hour. She mentioned that mornings are much better so my follow up is for 815 am.

This doctor took a phone call mid eye exam, proceeded to yell at the caller and then hang up on them. When she returned to checking my eyes, she complained about the caller until the exam was over. I've never experienced such unprofessionalism.

Dr. Tapper was great. But the wait times (initial wait time and then wait time to get an image taken) were pretty bad - the place is kind of a zoo and they definitely overbook.

When you are dealing with your eye, you likely need a bit more bedside manner than usual. Also, it's important to ask all contextual questions before launching into every thoughtless procedure possible. An experience that was debilitating and unintelligible. Expect jargon and an absence of the delicate touch.

Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was great. She was professional and caring, the best combination. My only hesitation in recommending this office is regardless of appointment you can expect to wait over 30 minutes without explanation. Maybe I'm just too New York but that can be a non-starter for me.

At first Dr. Tapper seemed a little cold. Didn't ask how my day was going, didn't make any conversation. But as the appointment went on I accepted that that was her personality and began to appreciate her thoroughness with my exam. Overall, she's a nice lady.

The wait time at this office was absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. Over 2 hours!!! I arrived early, had paperwork filled out and STILL waited. The doctor's assistant saw me after about 45 mins and then I sat for over 90 minutes to see the actual doctor. By the way, this was an EMERGENCY visit!!!!! This place is a factory, and clearly do not care about anyone's time but their own. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU DONT WANT TO MAKE A DAY OF THE EYE DOCTOR.

While Dr. Tapper herself was friendly, clear and efficient, I was abandoned for a good while in between seeing her assistant (who did the initial exam) and her. No one gave a time estimate or came to look for me, and I ended up going to the front desk to ask if I had been forgotten … only to have the receptionist mangle my name.

She is a great doctor. Took me in on an emergency. Spent time with me to find the right diagnosis. Professional attitude, but friendly and interested in me as a whole person, not just a gal with an eye problem. High marks!

i felt like i was in a manufacturing facility, things running off the mill. She did thorough job but she isn't personable at all. She didn't even say hi and when i left her room talked to me with her back towards me. I am not planning on seeing her again and i wouldn't recommend her to anyone.

I would not recommend this clinic at all. First, I waited for an hour and a half after my scheduled appointment time to see the doctor. With regards to my visit with the doctor, despite my repeated requests for her to clarify what she thought the diagnosis was (for the large skin cyst near my eye) - I did not feel I got a full answer. I simply received a generic antibiotic. Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was friendly enough with me although I did not feel she took my concern seriously. In addition, I was upset and very confused by her assistant who wanted to perform tests for glaucoma and then for the "pressure" in my eyes. These tests were completely unrelated to the reason I had scheduled this visit and the assistant acknowledged this when I questioned him. Why would they perform costly and inconvenient tests (eyes dilated for many hours) on a 26 year old with no reported symptoms around the physical eye itself? Worse, the assistant seemed disgruntled when I stated I did not see the link between my presenting concern and the tests. Last, the bathrooms in the waiting area were extremely dirty. It made me feel uncomfortable given that this was a medical setting.
