What People Say About Dr. Joseph Caprini, MD
Reply
My mother saw Dr Caprini twice. Each time she felt extremely frustrated with the lack of professionalism. He walked out of the room saying "he had another patient to see and apologize to for keeping them waiting". He never came back into the room. I was in the room with her. The second visit he wasn't in the office. She only saw his assistant, and my mom had questions for the dr. On the first visit he practically yelled at her. She will not go back.
