Was not a patient of Dr. Capone, but assisted patients during his visits and saw first-hand the professionalism with which he prepared to see each case, the warmth and empathy, and the extreme understanding with which he treated each patient and their family. Wish all doctors were as trustworthy and professional, as well as excellent MDs!

Arrived at my appt early, and was finished in record time. This office is managed very well. All of the staff members were really professional and really warm. I saw 2 medical students in training and the were very knowledgeable. Dr. Capone finished the visit and he was very personable and warm. He wanted to know who had done my previous work in Florida and acknowledged my former Dr. had done a marvelous job and my diabetic eyes were doing superb, and he would see 2017. Awesome Dr and office!!
Good to hear! Thank you for your feedback Jennifer!
