Patient Comments (5)
in Mission Hills Calif. |
I have seen several doctors over the past year to figure out a medical issue that I am having. Dr. Caperna really listened to me and together we are making a path towards my being able to get my life back. He is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable in his field. He is also very kind and caring towards his patients. He practices a holistic approach to medicine and because of this I feel he has more tools in his toolbox with which to help people - including yoga and alternative medicine.

Love Dr. Caperna, he's the best. I was referred by a co-worker, and he's been the best since day 1! Would refer any and everyone to him.

I just completed my first visit with Dr. Caperna. He and his staff deserve many more than 5 stars. He is an excellent listener, and asks questions in a way that indicates a high level of caring, expertise and experience. He is very thorough, combining holistic and tradititonal approaches. His staff are also wonderful and professional, everything is well managed: wait time zero, streamlined processes, and great follow-up for testing, referrals and Rxes, plus zero pain with shots & needles!

He is very friendly and talkative (in a good way). He truly does his best to make the patient feel comfortable. His staff are also very friendly! He doesn't rush through the important and also answers questions with certainty.
