I had a consultation with Dr. Capraro. He was most thoughtful and helpful. I appreciated his sensitivity to my situation and am planning to follow his advice concerning my next steps.
Littleton, CO |
Dr. Caparo was so kind and really listened to my concerns. He performed what I wanted to perfection. I couldn’t be more pleased. The follow up has been exceptional.
in Denver, CO |
I would highly recommend Dr. Capraro to anyone looking for a physical change. As a breast cancer survivor, even more so.... He has a compassionate heart and takes care of his patients. As you are going through the process of knowing you have a cancer, it is overwhelming to know that he is on your side and wants to make you want to welcome the change. He has been supportive, wiped my tears and reassured me and my family that I would be ok. Love him and couldn't have asked for anyone better.
in Scottsbluff, NE |
The staff at Grossman was excellent. Dr Capraro was very informative and didn't rush me at all, even though stayed a half hour after closing. He explained the whole process in great detail, I cannot find one thing to complain about with him or his PAC Nicole Kenyon
Arvada, CO |
I would recommend him. As a nurse, I appreciated the time he took to talk to me about what I wanted and to explain what he thought I needed and then to provide me with a very detailed explanation of what the surgery would entail and the possible complications and what to expect. He was very engaging and willing to talk, not always the case with physicians.
in Denver, CO |
All i can say is EXCELLENT. Dr Capraro preformed two different surgeries for me several years apart. Both experiences were over and above my expectations from start to finish. Both he, and his office, showed the utmost personal care towards me, before, during, and after my procedures. His skill in understanding, and then delivering, exactly what I wanted was A+. (even my husband was completely impressed by both my care and the results).
in Larkspur |
Dr. Capraro is brilliant artist. My abdominal surgery came out fantastic. After having 3 c-sections my abdomin was a mess. My muscles were no where near where they were suppose to be and I was full of scar tissue which was hindering my ability to get up from bending down. Six months later, I am biking, running and yes tying my shoes with no problems. Thank you so much to Dr. Capraro and all of his staff at Grossman Plastic surgery and Rose Med. Ctr.

Do NOT use this physician. The total breast reconstruction was a nightmare. In the end, the implant protruded through the skin tissue and emergency surgery was required to remove both of the implants. Never use this office!!!
in Arvada, CO |
For so many reasons, Dr. Capraro and his staff were a great decision for me and my needs. I had a breast reduction six months ago to help eliminate pain in my neck, back, and for headaches. When I went in, I didn't know what to expect. However, with the excellent customer service provided by Dr. Capraro and his staff, I was immediately at ease. For insurance companies - I had this reduction to help improve my overall health. Pre-authorization was required. I no longer have headaches.
in Denver, CO |
I cannot say enough about Dr. Capraro . Behind a serious, somewhat intense persona lies a man who is brilliantly meticulous, artistic and talented in what he does. In addition, he is compassionate beyond measure, caring more for his patients and the surgical outcome than he allows himself to convey. My reconstruction is amazing and completely natural. Dr. C's team guided me every step of the way, showing personalized knowledge and care for my situation. This is simply an outstanding group !!
in Denver, CO |
I underwent reconstruction from a single mastectomy. I chose Dr. Capraro for reconstruction. We did direct implant on the reconstructed side and another implant on the cancer free side for equalization. I was elated to wake up from surgery still whole, still having both of my original nipples I did not have to experience the trauma of seeing myself with missing parts. The result was better than I could have expected. Very professional and caring Dr. and staff. Thanks Dr. Phil!
in Denver, CO |
Dealing with a cancer diagnosis is overwhelming, but Dr. Capraro and staff have been right there with me every step, explaining exactly what is going on, and what next steps we're going to take. I like the fact that at the beginning Dr. C answered every question I had, but then also assured me that he wasn't going to overwhelm me by going through every detail at the very beginning. We established a plan of action and then, as we go thru it, the team tells me what is happening. LOVE this team!
in Denver, CO |
Absolutely beautiful! Dr. Capraro proved very professional and exceptionally detail oriented. The end result of these qualities has been above my expectations. He took unexpected extra time to ensure my results would be of the highest standard. Thank you Dr. Capraro
in Broomfield, CO |
I have nothing but praise for Dr. Capraro and his staff. Dr. Capraro thoroughly explained my procedure to me and patiently answered every question. He used technology and my photos to show me what he planned to do which I found very helpful. When I was feeling anxious a few weeks post surgery, he took the time to talk with me and calm my fears. He's truly one of the most caring doctors I've ever worked with.
