Patient Comments (1)

in Fort Walton Beach, Florida |
I saw Dr. Capra recently due to a severely swollen ankle. I was unable to walk without crutches as I could bear no weight on it. I had no idea what had happened to cause the pain and swelling. After an exam and X-ray, he determined a course of treatment which had me feeling much better very soon....more
