All was great. I had to make a last minute sick visit for my child and I wasn't able to make it to her regular pediatrician uptown. This experience was convenient and I will definitely take my child again.
Extremely thorough and knowledgeable. Excellent office staff

The doctor and staff were amazing and so accommodating. Would definitely recommend!

My son actually enjoyed visiting Dr. Rappaport's office. He was very kind and provided great information to better the health of my child. From school work to eating properly. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Great Dr. very knowledgeable, friendly and excellent bedside manners.
Wonderful visit, the Dr was very thorough in talking to me and seemed to really want to get to the bottom of my problem. Both the nurse and receptionist were lovely too. Would definitely recommend
Wow got seen right away, the Doctor and staff were super nice and patient with all my questions and concerns regarding my 2 year old.
They have the patience and very professional. Just tell them your problem and they're very willing to help you. Clean , quite and No waiting time. A very friendly and helpful place to parents. I feel lucky finding such a place at Zocdoc.
Great doc and great staff. I would suggest that he replace the 2 chairs in the room, as it has large stains/ring marks on the seats. I can only imagine what the stains are from....
First time going to an allergist, and definitely made the right choice. Dr. Rappaport and his entire staff were excellent from start to finish. I didn't feel like the Doctor was rushed, he spent time chatting with me and explaining my symptoms. Angie was also a doll, highly recommend
The practice is very nice, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Rapapport is competent and friendly.
Professional, warm, clear communicator, and efficient
Very nice efficient office.
Great appointment! didn't wait too long, got seen practically right away. Dr. Rappaport and his nurse staff have some of the best bedside manner I have ever encountered, especially in this city.
Super nice guy! Everything went quickly
Dr. Rappaport was very nice, patient, and attentive. He didn't insist on me getting tests for no reason, and offered other resources for my problem. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Rappaport and his team were very thorough and professional. I felt they really listened to my concerns and were great with my two young boys.
Very efficient and kind with my son.
Dr. Rappaport and his staff is kind and great at their work.
Great. He is such a great professionalism. Also his team is very kind and professional as well.
Dr. William Rappaport is understanding and seems very passionate of his work.
Great experience would keep this doctor for as long as possible
I appreciated the time that Dr. Rappaport took to talk to me about my symptoms and my allergy history. When I asked specific questions about different treatment options and medications he subscribed he went into great detail so I completely understood what was happening. He seemed genuinely interested in figuring out a plan to treat my allergies that would best work for my lifestyle and my budget.
Excellent experience. Dr. Rappaport is very professional.
I have visit Dr. Rappaport for my self and for my child, and both times it was great, patient and very helpful.
This visit was for my 3 year old son. We just moved to the city and were looking for a new pediatrician anyway, but my son (who has a history of allergies) started having breathing issues. Dr. Rappaport really took the time to understand the history, my concerns, and recommend a course of treatment. I'm super picky about doctors, and our experience was great. We expect to stick with him as both primary care ped and allergist for my son.
They seem to have trouble with billing. They called a few times to ask me about my own insurance, I phoned my insurance, and it turned out they just never called to ask the question to the insurance company.
Really nice guy! It's no pleasure to be pricked by allergens, but he made it an enjoyable visit. I appreciate his effort to not only treat me, but also to educate me on various ways to better live with allergies.
