The only issue we have with this office is the amount of time it takes to get an appointment. It's always several months out and the appointment times are not convenient. Dr. Kappelman is great, her office is very nice, thestaff is great as well. Just hate waiting months for an appointment. Highly recommend if you have the time to wait.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kappelman and her team! I had nearly zero waiting time and all the staff were warm, caring and professional (nurse Jackie helped me from start to finish). Dr. Kappelman was no exception andtook her time to address all of my concerns. I always have a bit of anxiety with any medical appointments, and felt immediately at home when dealing with Dr. Kappelman and her staff today! Sidenote, the location was an added bonus as there was ample parking and the office was modern and comfortable.
