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.

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.

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.

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.
