I can't say enough about Dr. Kapasi and the professionals he works with. From Ginny at the reception desk to Kristen and the other fine nurses in Cambridge my experience has been nothing but first rate. The injections in my neck have certainly helped relieve the pain. His sense of compassion and constant feedback as the procedure unfolds is most reassuring. I would highly recommend Dr. Kapasi.

I have been seeing Dr. Kapasi for a year when I got my MRI that showed I have lumbar spondelosis and I was a able to get my cortisone shot. the shots are a little painful but the nurses their at Santa Maria Hospital are so nice. I trust Dr. Kapasi 100% I have had a 80% improvement in the pain in my hip & left leg since receiving the shot last year and this year. I also love Ginny she is very professional and nice. I would highly recommend Dr. Kapasi to anyone who is suffering from back pain.

I found Dr. Kapasi to be a rude dude. He listened to me like his mind was already made up. He may be a good doctor, but I will never know, because I am unwilling to allow such a rude guy to work on my body. Dr. Kapasi, you chose medicine and guess what, it comes with working with people. IMO, you need to go back to school to learn some compassion and people skills.

I have seen Dr. Kapasi twice. Once in his office and the next time to get the Spinal Injection recommended. The office visit had me getting my questions answered, and explained to me why this procedure might help my ongoing pain. When I had the Spinal Injection, Dr. Kapasi explained step-by-step what he was going to do throughout the entire procedure. I even listened to my favorite singer on his iPod, as Dr. Kapasi knew I was nervous. I would recommend Dr. Kapasi, also his great, caring staff.

There is nothing "compassionate" about this doctor. During my last visit with him, he was snappy, rude and sarcastic. "Are you paralyzed?", he asked me, with irony, when he could have simply asked me to use more strength in my (rather weakened) legs during an exam. He also seemed to have blamed me for not benefiting enough from three pt sessions I underwent (and diligently). I would never let this man put a needle in my. Rude as it gets.

Extremely cocky. His procedure was painful and did not work.............but I am actually OK with that as I know it was a challenging situation. But he told me it did NOT hurt and I would feel fine. I did not get ANY relief from his procedure. Also, never a phone call or follow up.......

I have 3 herniated discs in my neck; I've so far been diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy and spondylosis, as well as bilateral occipital neuralgia. I endure pain on a daily basis that sometimes causes me to contemplate suicide. I have zero quality of life. And Dr. Kapasi had the nerve to insinuate that my pain was psychosomatic. He did not examine me, offered me no treatment whatsoever, and suggested I see an ear, nose, & throat doctor. MY suggestion to HIM - go back to med school, moron.
