      Dr. Capener says

      Thank you to all the patients that put their trust in me. I take that very seriously and am honored to be your doctor.

      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
