Was referred through friend & doctor, yet three times of rescheduling was enough! Never asked of my condition, and office didn’t care to listen. Doctor’s oath is to care for people. Was trying since beginning of year it is now the end and they moved again to October. Office tried to tell me they don’t take new patients when I told admin it wasn’t right what they are doing, 3 reschedules. Take off the website, “taking new patients.” Not ethical to play with a person’s health. No respect!

This review is terribly overdue but I have been seeing Dr. Capezio and her team for almost 20 years. My quality of life is continuously restored with their management of my health challenges. They take a lot of time with you, are thorough and actually think about your medical problem, how best to diagnose and treat it. They do not push pills and push you out the door. Painful conditions are not easy for doctor or patient and Dr Capezio and her team rise to the challenge again and again.

Dr. Capezio is one of a kind. I always feel comfortable in her office. She spends more than enough time with me and addresses all of my concerns. I have never had a rheumatologist as amazing as her.

The office staff is by far the rudest I have ever dealt with. Even though I had bloodwork and a referral to this office they would not schedule an appt because their protocol goes through multiple people and they give a timeline of anywhere between a week to multiple weeks before they call you to then schedule an appt which would be booked out a month later. Unbelievable especially since my insurance allows me to go to any doctor. I would never go to this office.

While friendly, she isn't interested in complex cases and is unable to think beyond the borders of numbers on paper. If you have a simple, run of the mill diagnosis, she might be ok, but if you have any complications or anything outside the "norm" she won't be helpful.

I drive a pretty long distance to see Dr. Capezio; she is well worth the drive. After a number of neutral or negative experiences with rheumatologists, I am so relieved to have connected with her. She is kind, gentle, and caring. She is so respectful of my expertise as a patient, listening attentively to my story and encouraging me to make my own decisions. My appointments with her never feel rushed.

Dr. Capezio is an island of calm in the cycle of chronic autoimmune pain, sleeplessness, and the multitude of twists an turns of the disease process. Appointment time length seems to be the least of her concerns when she is in the exam room. She returns calls, emails and thoroughly answers questions, seeming to have an innate ability to read the level of understanding I as a patient have attained in discussion. SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!

I've was going to Dr Capezio for over 6 years. She is very kind , gentle, knowledgeable. Has helped me very much. I am on disability and can not afford health insurance as of last year. I was a self pay patient. I was notified by her office that she will no longer se me because I have no insurance! That there was a new office manager and starting in January they no longer, will except Cash...... I wonder if she knows this? I am very hurt, can't believe it.

Went looking for help. At the time I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but have since been diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases. I was told to go for acupuncture to help with my fibromyalgia because none of the medications did anything to help. She does not think outside the box. I would still be slowly breaking down be told I had fibromyalgia. I would not recommend wasting your time. The office staff is a nightmare to deal with as well. They talk to you as though you're garbage.

Dr. Capezio is the best in the area. I have been a patient for years and every time I come in for an appointment she makes me feel cared for and gives me the best medical advice. I have suffered for years from joint pain and saw many doctors before Dr. Capezio. She is simply the BEST! I recommend her highly.
