Dr. Capozzi is a kind, caring and down-to-earth physician. He listened towhat I had to say. He replaced my right hip in 2017 and I was very happy with the outcome.

Listens to you patiently, explains everything thoroughly. All of this with a great big smile and friendly demeanor. Amazing doctor with a lot of emphasis on post surgical care. If ever I have to have another hip replaced am going to Dr. Capozzi.

I've been going to Dr. Capozzi and Kathy Pashos, his PA, for over 5 years and have found them to be responsive, caring and most of all, highly competent. Dr. Capozzi performed a total knee replacement on my right knee on September 24, 2018 and everything has been as expected.

The care I received both at the office and the hospital was outstanding. Dr. Capozzi and his staff were both informative and caring. The pre-op and post-op care and follow up was excellent.

Right hip replacement April 2018. I researched and even met with a trusted spine surgeon prior to choosing a hip surgeon. Upon asking who this surgeon would have his mother use, the answer was Dr. Capozzi, at Winthrop. Capozzi and his team were a blessing. Not only fine tuned veterans, compassionate and conservative; they like their job and hospital. Rare find. Prayed with Dr. Capozzi before heading to the operating room. Needless to say, the experience and outcome positive.

Dr. Capozzi performed my right-hip-replacement surgery on October 23, 2017. Thanks to his A+ efforts on my behalf, I am walking without pain ty this time (February 20, 2018) and have resumed essentially all of the activities I was unable to engage in prior to my surgery. A fine job indeed!

After visiting and seeing other surgeons for hip problems , Dr. Capozzi was very thorough and patient explaining a hip replacement procedure and made it clear from the beginning that the patient has to be ready to make the decision based upon his or her quality of life, After having both hips replaced in two separate surgeries I know that I made the right decision in selecting Dr. Capozzi . Both he and the whole Orthopedic team at Winthrop were EXCELLENT. I recommend him with no reservations.
