This Dr, is a clown. I should have read the other terrible reviews about him before seeing him. I too had to wait an hour and 45 minutes. He was dressed in his Halloween costume, at least I think it was for Halloween. He has the compassion of a baked potato. He was clueless to what meds I have been on and what I currently was on. I got up and left mid session, and he still wanted to shake hands...what a clown. No way is he worthy of a handshake. I would not recommend this guy to anyone. Trust me

He obviously has no respect for his patients. I was in the waiting room for an hour and 1/4 after my appt. time before asking how much longer it was going to be to see the doctor. I was told he was running very late - which was not unusual - and that there were still 2 patients before me. So - a two hour wait to get in. I couldn't wait that long so asked for another appointment. My options - 4 days from now (I would be out of town) or March. Why do doctors get away with this level of disrespect?
in Tonawanda, NY |
I waited 3 hours to see the most rude and insensitive individual on the planet. He stared at his computer for 10 minutes and never looked at me once. I was there for depression. After I left I felt like a psychopath. He ordered 17 blood tests and a sleep study. He prescribed a medication that is very expensive and had a counter indication with a statin I'm on had he read my paperwork. He ordered me to " take it" This man should not be practicing medicince.

I saw Dr. Capote for five minutes and since have had to suffer through his PA who has been worthless.

this doctor is absolutely ridiculous, i was told he was known for running late but 3 hours? what do i not have a life and i can just sit here? don't waste your time because his treatments are not worth the wait. avoid this psychiatrist if you can

I have been going to Dr. Capote's office since 2009. in 2010 he diagnosed me with a rare genetic gene defect and told me to take a supplement which was not covered by insurance and would cost me $120 for 30 pills. I was on disability and told him I could not afford it. I'm finding out through my own research these days that it can be very serious if not taken care of. I feel he dropped the ball on that. I've also been passed off to a Physicians Assistant and have not seen Dr. Capote in 3 years.
in Batavia, NY |
The office canceled 3 weeks before my appt. Rescheduled for 6 weeks later. Arrived on time. Receptionist asked for paperwork that was mailed to me. I didn't get any paperwork in the mail. Same story for 3 of 4 people that entered after me. Paid my copay, completed the paperwork, went to an office for intake questions, back to waiting room. Where I waited and waited. After an hour and 40 mins I asked for my copay back and left. Receptionist wasn't apologetic. Flat out said "He runs late"
