Patient Reviews (4)
Washington, DC |
Zero bedside manner. Was very matter-of-fact about serious issues without taking the time to really explain them or make me trust him or feel comfortable. He disagreed with the MRI results, but said he couldn't be sure (introducing some serious issues into the conversation that weren't there previously). He seemed very aloof, bored, and unconcerned about my well-being or anxiety over what was happening. Will not be going back to him. The PA/resident that met with me first was much better.

My appointment was at 1:30. Dr. Caputy's administrator/nurse Anthony, took me into a waiting room immediately and took my blood pressure etc. He was great. About 25 minutes later doctor Caputy's PA, Thomas Korotka came in a gave me a full examination. He too was great. Then, over an hour later Dr. Caputy came into the room, examined me for a couple of minutes, asked me a few questions and left. I had 4 MRI discs that I am pretty sure he did not look at. He seemed completely disinterested.

Terrible bedside manner, if he has one at all. Was very arrogant, spent a few of minutes in the room during the longest exam, explained nothing, and is all about money.
