in Ammon, Idaho Falls, ID |
He staff isn't very kind. His answering service during lunch hours is very rude, and short. Wouldn't let me leave a message. Dr, Capener is not very professional. He cauterized my sons nose, and now he has a hole in his septum. I wouldn't take him back there for the follow up, I took him to Hinkley instead. Capener ruined my sons nose. Hinkley doesn't carterized both sides, because it could cause a hole. Well....I will never refer him to a single person. And never take any family member back

Dr. Capener is always available when I need him. I have been having sinus problems for the last 8 months. He has stayed on top of all of my infections and issues. He has treated all of my concerns and I am finally feeling much better. I have never had another doctor go above and beyond for my health, like he has. Overall he is an excellent Doctor!
Following the surgery in 2010, a long strip of cartilage (over 6 inches) fell out of my nose and was still attached. I clipped it off myself and went for a follow-up appointment to have it trimmed better. I was told this was normal. In an appointment years later at Stanford University hospital, the specialist noticed that a wall of my nose was collapsed due to surgery. He asked if I had this surgery in this country.

I think Dr.Capener is an excellent doctor. Recently saw him for a suspicious spot on my tonsils,which he decided must come out with my adenoids.We also discussed my chronic snoring and determined some work should be done on my septum at the same time. Him and his staff did an excellent job communicating with my insurance to get it approved in a very timely fashion.The procedure went well,and he was very attentive to my pain management after the fact.I would highly recommend him to any one.
