in Rochester, NY
Very thorough and explains things so you can understand them. Will not suggest surgery unless it's imperative. & Until I've exhausted all of my options I continue to do what Dr. Capicotto suggests I do. He's a great doctor & Has a great bed side manner. I would highly suggest this doctor!
