The office did not receive my notice of scheduling an appointment on zocdoc which scared me at first I didn't think I would be seen. Luckily the staff was able to input me in the system, before I knew it I was having a conversation with doctor capeci in less the 15 minutes form my arrival . He was very informing.

Dr. Capeci was clear and thoughtful in his diagnosis and explanations. I am hopeful that the treatment he prescribed will be helpful, and if not he made a plan for a 2nd option.

Dr. Capeci was quick and concise. He gave me all the information that he could based upon my symptoms and laid possible causes out in a way that didn't scare or intimidate me. It was also a comfort to see the dance posters in the lobby and waiting room, which gave me a sense that they support the arts and are familiar with dance and athletic bodies.

My experience with Dr. Capeci was excellent. Dr. Capeci has excellent patient skills including explaining options available to relief the symptoms, what options were available and how they could or couldn't be used in my case. We discussed the options and develop a plan to have corrective Hip Replacement surgery to solve my condition. Dr. Capeci also explained the surgical process and recovery time frame. Thank you, Bill

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.
