Dr. Capeci is straightforward, thorough, and highly skilled. He was running behind schedule today, so a bit rushed, but not a big complaint.

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.

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.

In house x-rays really expedite things. They have a large staff so I never wanted more than 5 minutes at each step of the appointment.

Dr. Capeci was great - he listened to me explain the pain I was feeling and we took X-rays right in the office.

Dr. Capeci was very informative and knowledgeable. I was impressed that he examined me without looking at any x-rays. He was able to tell me exactly what my symptoms were by examining my knees and asking thorough questions. He answered questions at a level in which I could understand. I highly recommend Dr. Capeci.

The doctor was great and seemingly knowledgable. I'd already been seen by urgent care prior, so this was merely a visit to obtain peace of mind. The receptionist weren't super friendly. But, this is New York. No one ever is.
