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.
