Verified Patient Reviews
I was very pleased with Dr. Tapper. She was thorough and not in a hurry. She answered all my questions without being annoyed. It seems she enjoys what she does. Thank you!
Excellent doctor. She really took care of me and knows all there is needed to give expert opinion. You're eyes are fine with her.
Dr. Tapper was very excellent. Highly recommend her.
I waited 15 min to be seen by a tech who took my info and did a vision test. I then waited 1 1/4 hours to see the Opthalmologist. Had a good experience except for the over one hour wait.
She was vey good and had a great bedside manner. I woul definitely reccomend her
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.
The doctor was very thorough and professional. I felt in good hands.
She is thorough and explains everything.
Dr. Tapper was thorough and before I asked she had already given me the answer.
She was very thorough and had a really great bedside manner.
First time visit with this doctor although I have been coming to the office for years. She is nice and professional. I would recommend her.
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.
Over all really good, she gave a good refferal to another doctor who could help my eye issue!
she was great! Answered all questions and concerns.
Very patient and explained everything. She was very willing to help me figure out solutions to my eye problem.
The doctor took the time to find the right lens for me after I expressed that my current lens did not fit well.
Dr. Rosenberg was great! She was very thourough and easy to talk to. Highly recommend! The office and staff were great as well.
She was wonderful
Did not realize appt had changed until on my way there.
She and all the staff were friendly and professional.
Very professional, friendly, and thorough annual eye exam. The waiting room areas are a little confusing - there are 3, but otherwise, it was a great visit.
doctor was perfunctory. did not explain her actions or answer most of my questions. took forever to get seen. overall unpleasant experience.
Dr. Tapper listens to you and your needs well and her exams are thorough. (Unfortunately, the office staff is another story.)
Doctor is very personable and helpful.
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.
She is really nice.
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 was professional, courteous, and timely. She provided a thorough explanation of the issue I was experiencing and I felt confident in her diagnosis. Highly recommended!
1.75 hours of wait time for a 9 minute appointment. Otherwise a positive experience.
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.
Although the wait was long, Dr Tapper-Rosenberg was very friendly and professional. I would highly recommend her.
Will likely not return.
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.
Doctor Tapper was very thorough, knowledgable and kind!
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.
A bit quick but satisfactory all around.
pleasant, efficient, knowledgeable, thorough– all the things i want from a doctor.
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.
I need glasses for schools so l can wear.
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 was very thorough.
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.
Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was very thorough and I would definitely return in the future but I would allow several hours for future appointments since the office is so busy.
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.
Efficient; knowledgeable; professional; cared about me as a patient; did the best job she could to help my eyes.
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.
She was very helpful. the wait time was my only issue.
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!
She listened everything I said regarding my particular needs and wants and tried to provide results.
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.
Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg was efficient, kind and explained the diagnosis simply. I was in and out in under 20 minutes. The front desk team was organized and speedy. I will rebook with her in the future.
Fantastic, will be referring family members.
good treatment done in a professional and timely mannner
very good. very responsive and professional.
very sweet and relaxing perfect bedside manners
Very good, a bit of a wait to finally see the doctor but otherwise very good
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.
She seemed like do not listen my concern seriously. She says " I dont know" a few time in a not nice way. Felt so hurt.
She was very friendly and professional. Also, showed a lot of concern for my health. Will definitely go back with follow ups and recommend Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg to others.
She is highly professional, explains issues well and is personable.
I had a very poor visit today. Firstly, I was not seen by the doctor until 1 hour after my scheduled appointment time. The office looked like a factory. The technician who I was told I must first see seemed like he had no clue what he was doing. Doctor did not know what the problem was on my eye. However, she still prescribed me steroid medication to take. She was friendly and asked me some personal questions, but I felt her care was really poor, knowledge poor, and her recommendations unclear. Honestly, I felt like she didn't really know what she was doing with me. After waiting an hour, with no results, as I told her I would go to Long Island back to my original eye doctor, I am very annoyed tonight.
It was my first visit and they called me right after I submitted my information. The doctor was very professional and the personnel were very courteous. Nice clean office.
VERY HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE AND PERSONEL.
She was helpful, nice and knew what she was doing!
she was very professional and knowledgable.
I was seen quickly and everyone in the office is pleasant. Dr. Tapper is thorough, listens well, and is very personable and smart.
She was very good and concerned about my problem. She was very professional and environment excellent... As well the staff.
Very good doctor. As a first-time patient, she asked the right questions to understand my issue and give me the best solution based on my needs. I highly recommend.
Very professional and courteous
Helpful, articulate, quick
it was ok but bot very social
Thorough exam, and very professional. Really delves into any unusual findings, and allows ample time to study your eye health. Really one of the best. Will continue to rely on her advice for my eye health
While she seems like a capable, kind doctor, I did not have a pleasant experience with the procedures. I was not informed of what the procedures were before taking action (numbing my eyes, dilation, etc) and felt resistance when I asked. After finishing the exam, she prescribed me medication but did not tell me what the problem was, or whether it would get better (until I asked.) Clean facilities, but customer service was very poor. Not to mention waiting for over an hour after booking an appointment in advance.
Excellent experience. Quick, straightforward, and very friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Tapper-Rosenberg!
I've been coming to her for over two years now. She is top notch!
Please help all future patients by giving them the honest take here. This place is as awful as it gets. So many hurdles that one is bound to tackle the visitor. (1) The front desk is very busy and will keep you on hold forever. (2) After 3 unsuccessful calls I booked via ZocDoc. (3) Then since I called the office manager to give him feedback, the front desk gave me an awkward reception. (4) After waiting for an hour, Dr. Tappar takes me the 1st room where we are immediately kicked out since another patient needs the same equipment. (5) Asked the Dr. how her day was - she didn't hear me as she justified later. (6) 100% apathy on my actual suffering whilst asking me personal questions. (7) Not a single moment of face contact - trust me they treat patients like chewing gum. (8) Asks me what my profession is only to cut my answer off with the next question. (9) Decided not to be humiliated anymore, so requested to be refunded. Dr. walks we off coldly to reception for a refund with no regret / apology whatsoever. Please don't go here !
This doctor has high grade professional skills and personal attitude.
Really nice and took her time to address my concerns. I was prepared for an unreasonably long wait based on other reviews, but it was maybe 5 minutes for the PA and then 25 for the doctor.
I thought she was professional and thorough.
Dr. Tapper was so unfriendly and made me feel like it was such an inconvience to her to do a routine exam. She never looked at me while speaking and was impatient throughout the exam. I booked an early appointment in hopes to get in and out, however 4 other people shared my appointment time and I was in the office for 2 hours. I will not be returning to this office.
Excellent Doctor, excellent way of setting up an appointment. Professional all the way!
She seems like a sympathetic soul doing her best, as are the rest of the staff, but the clinic is horribly overrun and poorly managed. People should't be promised appointments if there's not adequate room to see them. I waited two hours to see someone, then had to wait almost an hour more before I could see the doctor. It was terrible.
I found her personable, calming, and seemingly thorough. I will return.
I thought she was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions in clear precise answers and I plan on seeing her again in a year for my annualy appointment.
I thought she was very thorough while using top of the line equipment. I will see her in another 6months.
The doctor wasn't eager to communicate and basically just handed me a prescription at the end of my visit.
My appointment was at 3:45pm. At 4:45pm I was still waiting in the second waiting room to be seen. I did not leave until 5:30 and spent a total of 15 minutes with the doctor. Not efficient by any means.
Very nice Doctor took her time with the exam and answered all my questions. Thank you Dr. Rosenberg
The appointment went great and I was even able to complete my eye test for the driver's license renewal form.
Very high professional level.
