in Waterford, NY |
Dr. Capek is an amazing and skilled surgeon. She was extremely informative during my consultation and has a very kind, sincere and trusting bedside manor. Her years of experience are quite apparent from the first visit to my post-op appointment. From the first meeting with Dr. Capek until now she has answered all of my questions, spent adequate time with me making me feel confident and comfortable. The office staff was very welcoming and made my whole surgical experience go very smooth.

Albany, NY |
Dr. Capek performed my tummy tuck and I couldn't be happier. Her staff and everything from the consultation to the surgery and aftercare was seamless. I would highly recommend Dr. Capek and her Staff.
northville, ny |
She really did not understand my concerns. She did not give me a examine. Not impressed. Not worth 150. consultation fee. I found out it was my platysma muscle giving the pulling down feeling on the sides of my face. She was clueless?
in Saugerties NY |
Dr. Capek and her team are amazing!!! I couldn't have asked for a better experience or result in my breast reduction surgery. She listens to the needs of her patients and is empathic, kind and confident. Ellis hospital that she is affiliated with is also a breath of fresh air with positivity and professionalism. I'm truly grateful for Dr. Capek changing my life and relieving me of my pain.
Greenwich, NY |
Dr Capek was my surgeon for a breast reduction. She and her staff were professional and caring. This surgery was the best decision of my life and I'm very glad that I chose Dr Capek.
in Queensbury, NY |
I would never recommend this doctor. We had scheduling issues on the surgery date and choose not to wait. She then decided not to reschedule without even a personel phone call. She had her staff call.
Joanne -as a result of your behavior toward me and my practice, you created and irreparable disruption of the doctor patient relationship. In consequence, you were terminated from my practice.
