He explained again about my right shoulder problem which is chronic. Gave me an injection. If pain gets severe, return for f/u. He also suggested maybe shoulder surgery. Hope6 injection helps.

First, the waiting room was clean and the furniture wasn't old and worn, so I felt very comfortable waiting. There were a few people waiting to be seen so my overall wait was around 40 minutes, but there is a tv and some relative reading material to indulge in. With that being said I can say the same about the exam room. Very clean! Dr. Capeci took his time, heard me out, made sure I left knowing what was happening and what needed to be done, and he was also very nice!

Dr.Capeci was great. He had a great, easy bedside manner, and I'd recommend him. My wait was over an hour, which is (unfortunately) typical with any of the doctor's offices that are part of the Methodist Park Slope group, in ny experience.

Dr. Capeci was friendly and took time to discuss my concerns. He was thorough, but also efficient so the appointment didn't take long. I got an xray and ended up getting a wrist brace, and all techs were very nice and there was little to no wait time. The doctor and office staff were overall very professional and helpful. Would recommend!

Dr. Capeci was prompt and professional. Unlike another orthopedic surgeon I saw a day earlier, he took the necessary precautionary steps to fully diagnose my condition and explain all my options. Dr Capeci showed compassion and knowledge when listing risks and benefits of each of my options. At this point, I could not be more pleased with my choice.

He got me an xray immediately, barely touched my back, and then sent me away while I was in chronic excruciating pain-- and no answers. I did receive a script with weak pain meds and a note for physical therapy. Meanwhile, I met with someone else and he got to the bottom of my issue and was able to fix me. Craig Capeci isn't a healer he's just a guy with a script booklet and a piece of paper that says he went to school.

Doctor Capaci was kind and helpful. The pricing was a over priced, the clinic and waiting area did not make feel at ease. The wait was more than hour, despite making an appointment. What is the purpose of making appointments, and I'm paying so much for a visit, when you're forced to wait these kind of wait times.
