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 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.

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"
