I have been in pain, I called the office to speak to the doctor on Monday and never heard back, I called and left messages with her staff everyday, and didn't hear back till Friday, the answer I got was I will speak to the office manager..

Horrible, should of listen to my gut feeling and her reviews. I am waiting for 3 weeks for her to get in touch with my orthopedic doctor to discuss my case and determine if surgery is needed. Meanwhile I am in so much pain, taking Oxycodone and developing the addiction.

After seeing the doctor, I was told I needed an EMG, which was scheduled a few week later on 8/8/16, when I was told I need to come back for a follow up. Except they could not find me an appointment for a follow up visit. So finally 2 months later, they scheduled me for 1/9/2017. That's 4 months after I had the test done! Yesterday, the office called to confirm it, and today they called to say the doctor will not be able to see me and wanted to schedule me to 3/17/17. I am changing doctors!!!

I arrived at the office on time, and was seen shortly after filling out paperwork. Dr Caprarella explained everything to me very clearly, and made sure I was aware of all the items she was testing and provided feedback both before, during, and after the exam. Not everyone needs to see a specialist in this field, but I would recommend her to anyone needing some additional help beyond their family doctor.

Dr. Caprarella is unprofessional at best. My grandmother has alzheimers and I attend her doctors appointments with her. It is not easy for me to take time off from work and school to accompany her but I work it out. However Dr. Caprarella has canceled our appointment, at the last minute on four separate occasions. It is extremely difficult to get through to her staff at the office and if prescriptions need to be renewed she refuses to speak to the pharmacy. It's simply a terrible experience.

Not at all flexible. Acted like she was doing me a big favor by seeing me. I am a MS patient and I was 10 minutes late and she wouldn't see me. I left her practice!
