Patient Comments (3)
Houston, TX |
I am very happy with the treatment I have received for my allergies in Dr Caplin's office. I no longer suffer from those pesky allergies and sinus infections, it has been a life saver!
in Corpus Christi, TX |
I like Dr Caplin and I feel like he gives he really good care. I don't like the PA Mr Green. He doesn't pay attention to his hygiene. He gave me medicine that conflicted with another of my prescriptions. I should have been sent straight to an ear specialist and I may not have lost my hearing in a super infected ear. However, I feel confident that my allergy treatment has made my life with many allergies more comfortable. I have far fewer sinus and ear infections thanks to my allergy shots.

Felt comfortable, he was informative,asked detailed questions about what I was experiencing, looked at pictures of reactions I had experienced and listened . He reassured me that I was going to get the care I needed.after testing he explained what was wrong,how it he would treat the problems and how long before seeing results. He told me what I needed to change at home He took me off meds that were only causing more problems and has continued to watch as I progressively get better.
