Patient Comments (3)
Babylon, NY |
Front desk personnel extremely rude. I was on time for appointment and learned that one urgent case was waiting for over an hour. When I made another appointment I was told they could not guarantee that I would be seen at time of my appointment. Why take appointments then? Dr Cappellino is very good and very nice as is his PA. But the woman at the front desk needs a refresher on how to speak to patients. We are there because are in pain, no for the fun of it.
Massapequa Park, NY |
Dismissive. Acted as if he did not believe me, or as if I was exaggerating my symptoms. Ordered an MRI to humor me ( turns out I have a torn meniscus and other issues). And I did not ask for, or seek, medication, so I definitely was not prescription shopping.
in Pjs, NY |
Went to Dr cappellino after him being recommended by a friend. I have had ongoing shoulder issues for 6 years. They sent me for an Mri and the report came back pretty much the same as it did 3 years prior. The PA calls me to review the report that he barely read and proceeds to tell me that what you have is equivalent to a bad sprain and it will heal. (Palm to my head). When do you suppose that will happen? It's been 6 years. Oh, the Dr will call you..it's been over a month. USELESS
