I was referred to Dr. Caputo from a friend who recently had surgery by Dr. Caputo. I have had back problems for many years. I was shown my MRI and explained what was going on with my back. Very helpful in understanding what my condition is and what my option are. The team there was very helpful to my needs and time spent there was efficient. I would recommend the team there to everyone.

Dr. Caputo is one in millions! He truly cares about his patients and he LISTENS! He does not treat his patients like an assembly or production line. He takes the necessary time to make sure both he and the patient understands each other and the medical issue is clear to both. I truly appreciate his attitude, his personality, and his sincere concern for my health and well being. He is wonderful. Wish he was a specialist in ALL fields of medicine. Must add, the staff is GREAT also. They are especially nice to all.

My mother had seen Dr. Caputo and I was so impressed with his treatment of her - and her condition - that I decided to see him with I had issues with my back. The process of scheduling an appointment was quick and painless. I was welcomed by friendly office staff and my wait time in the office was minimal. Both Dr. Caputo and his Physician's Assistant Derek were excellent. They performed a thorough evaluation and took the time to review my MRI films with me. I appreciated the fact that several different conservative treatment options were offered to me. I am thankful that I did not require surgery at this time. However, should that time come - I am confident Dr. Caputo would be my choice for a surgeon.

My visit comes post car accident. I already had an old back injury and since the accident, it seemed to be worse. I went in to be accessed and make sure my old injury was not made worse by the accident and to what extent my back was injured. I was made to feel comfortable and everything including the anatomy of my spine and different methods of treatment were thoroughly explained to me. Both Dr. Caputo and his PA were concerned with my thoughts and concerns. They made sure to order more testing to further investigate the injury and scheduled a follow up for me to explain the testing I will be having. All the staff members were wonderful. I had a really great experience there.
