in East Islip, NY |
The very best medical experience of my life. Dr Capizzi repaired a botched surgery from a previous doctor and very well probably saved my life.
in East Islip, NY |
I went to Dr. Cappizzi for hemorrhoid removal after giving birth. I thought he was very nice and patient. I didn't feel he rushed at all like I do with most doctors. I have nothing but good to say about him, and I will go to him again now that I have the same problem after giving birth to my second! (terrible I know !)
West Babylon, NY |
WORST doctor, worst staff, unbelievable wait times, legitimately was manipulated into accepting inferior surgery. DO NOT GO TO THIS OFFICE.
