This was one of the most streamline appointments I've ever had. I was seen right away, then got X-rays and then saw the doctor again. Office staff was super nice. One of the best doctor office experiences I've ever had.

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.

Dr. Capeci and his staff are first-rate. He diagnosed my tendinitis immediately and prescribed OT. I resisted at first ( just give me the cortisone shot, doc!) but then realized he was right. He recommended a therapist that has improved my situation 100%.In addition to being smart, he's very personable and warm. I recommend him without reservation.

Dr. Capeci seemed kind and knowledgeable -- the perfect combo. He explained everything at just the right level, neither dumbed-down nor medical-speak-y. The radiologist and front desk staff at his Park Avenue location were lovely, too. Excellent experience overall.

I had seen Dr. Capeci last year because I needed an injection in my knee. It ultimately wore off and I needed another one. I had been pleased with him and the results last time so I went back to him. Dr. Capeci explains the procedure, does it quickly and painlessly, and has an excellent, conversational manner. I would recommend him highly.

Dr. Capeci is professional and knowledgeable. Some of his staff are helpful and polite, but most of the people who I spoke to over the phone treated me as if I was a huge inconvenience to them. Dr.Capeci told me to call him for my follow-up MRI results rather than to have to spend the money on the co-pay, which I appreciate. It took me about five tries calling each office (depending on the day of the week, he works at different offices) to get him on the phone. I blame this less on the doctor and more on the rude office staff. if I need an orthopedist again, I will be looking elsewhere.

My appointment with the doctor went very well, but he had emergency situations prior to my scheduled time, which made for an unusually long wait. (you may use my review w/o my name)

He seems like a good doctor but his office in Brooklyn is crowded, smelly and not very nice. I think his Manhattan office would have been a better place to be seen.
