Patient Comments (1)
in Burkeville, TX |
I have more confidence in Dr. Capellan than I have had with any other pulmonologist (4) that have treated me for emphysema - total confidence in him, Dr. Capellan was recommended to me 3 years ago by a friend with a rare lung disease, who eventually had lung transplant. I am so glad he did. Dr. Capellan is a true gentleman, kind, compassionate an caring to his patient and their family. He is thorough and takes as much time as necessary to explain and address or answer any concerns.
