"Dr. Kwapiszeski (Dr. K) is the most thorough, and detailed, ophthalmologist I’ve ever experienced, concerning my eye care. He takes the extra time to examine (and then re-examine) your concerns, to diagnose any issue methodically (and he’ll get it right)! He’s a serious guy, but he’s genuine, and will take the time to answer all your concerns (in great detail). There’s a reason why Dr.K is known as one of the top eyecare physicians in the field. If you’re looking for someone who’s got the answers, look no further than Dr.K. The only critiques, I can consider, is that his intellectualism can be intimidating (and over my head), and landing an appointment, can take several weeks (at no fault of his own). He’s very popular, and sought after (in the community), but, he’s well worth the wait! In my opinion (and I research, to find the best physicians) he’s the best ophthalmologist, in the KC Metro region."- J.S. / Google / Jul 26, 2022
