Dr. Kapural is a great, knowledgeable doctor. If he comes across a little conceited then so be it. He deserves it. Look at his credentials. Anyway he was not like that towards more at all. I thought he was very nice and listened attentively. I know he helped me!

Dr. Kapural has been treating me for chronic pain. He has been very thorough and compassionate. Only wish I had been referred to him sooner. He is definitely improving my quality of life with his treatment.

I was seen by this clinic several times, a different person each time, and only on the last visit did I get to see the lauded Dr. Kapural. He stormed into the room, introduced himself, and told me, without hearing a word from me, what he had determined I needed to do next, which was another procedure. When I told him I was not interested at this point in that procedure, and tried to discuss what I had come to talk about, which was concerns about contraindication with the medicine he had prescribed, he raised his voice and began telling me about how his way is the only way that works, and all my other doctors are incompetent. The longer I tried to get back to what I needed to speak with him about, the nastier/louder he got, until he was literally standing in front of me, yelling at me. In the end, he yelled he wouldn't treat me any more, and yelled from down the hall for me to leave. He absolutely did not care about anything I had to say. Please beware of this clinic and this man.

Dr. Kapural has treated me for over a year. He is one of the only doctors I have ever met who truly cares for the patient as much as he does. Not only has he treated me, but he has treated my father for almost 10 years.

I felt he was trying to SELL me a spinal stimulator, rather than explain what it is. He blatantly lied about the size of battery and the pain level associated with it.

Dr. Kapural is the greatest doctor in the world, and if you don't believe it just ask him. His explanations are poor, doesn't seem to want to listen to the patient.

Dr. Kapural is a internationally known pain management physician He was so helpful to me over the 3 years I saw him.I have since relocated, and have been unable to find another doctor to treat me here like him. His demeanor can be off putting initially, but he is kind,compassionate man that I miss dearly. Have faith. He doesn't just prescribe medication, so don't expect that; he performs many procedures to address your pain. I have been suffering with terrible pain since moving.
