My name is Yung Kang and I am a local dentist in Bergen County.a few weeks ago I was diagnosed Craniopharyngioma. The condition made me a headache and losing vision. Dr. Kaptain is well-known neurosurgeon among health communities. I was able to meet him a day after the diagnosis made. He was a humble man and he explained me thru every detail about the procedure. Now all went well. I have regained a normal vision right after surgery and no headache. Thanks to him and his staff.

My husband was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in May 2015. Dr Kaptain performed this procedure, not only with superior technical skills, but also with tremendous compassion. This was obviously an extremely difficult time for my family and he provided complete factual information in such a calming way which helped to lessen the stress. Without hesistation, I highly recommend this surgeon. He is an absolutely amazing man and a gifted surgeon!!
My mother had a neck laminectomy to remove a benign tumor with Dr. Kaptain. I'm so thankful that he did the surgery as I felt I could rely on him immediately after the first consultation. He's very knowledgeable and walked us through the surgical procedure in detail. He's not a type of doctor who would promise anything before the surgery but I was confident that he would deliver and he did. My mother has been recovering fast and I'm so happy that she got the surgery with him.

I was diagnosed with a medium Vestibular Schwannoma in the right ear I had two options surgery or Radiation. I decided for the surgery mostly because I felt I was in good hands with Dr. Kaptain. Dr Kaptain is intelligent, informative,compassionate doctor. I went in for surgery 11/22 a nine hour operation. It,s been a week still recovering i have hearing in my right ear which is a relief. I am feeling very lucky his office made this operation fit into my life and my family . THANK YOU!
in West New York, NJ |
Dr. Kaptain performed an amazing brain surgery on me. I would like to thank him and his staff.
in Tappan, NY |
Dr. Kaptain is the most intelligent man I have had a conversation with in years. I was diagnosed with a large meningioma that needed to be removed urgently. He explained the whole procedure in detail, in a very eloquent manner. He wasn't rushed, he answered all my questions and was very patient with my misgivings, hesitations and anxieties. The whole experience was as stress-free as it could have been, considering the situation. The hospital staff and his office staff are equally caring.
in Upper Saddle River, NJ |
Dr. Kaptain is the most caring and compassionate brain surgeon. I trusted him with my wife's life and we just celebrated our best New Year's ever. I owe him my eternal gratitude and recommend him enthusiastically! Thank you Dr. Kaptain!
