called DrCapello because of urinal bleed. Exam in office concluded that bleed was result of prior radiation. But camera inspection revealed a cancerous growth which was removed in Saratoga hospital. A more knowledgeable or concerning Dr. cannot be found. God Bless Seth.

Dr Capello is awesome. The practice is very busy and it isn't easy to get an appointment, but it's worth the wait. Dr Capello spent a lot of time explaining my situation and options in detail, with props, and in an easy to understand manner. Very few doctors are so attentive and patient.

I would not recommend this practice for a vasectomy. The procedure didn’t seem right to me and Post Vasectomy Pain is not being taken seriously by the practice.

Dr. Capello is extremely knowledgable and very effective at educating his patients about our conditions and possible steps to alleviate them. He takes the time to explain processes and procedures, answer questions, and get to know patients as people. After a few less than great experiences with local urologists, I'm delighted to have been steered to Dr. C [on the advice of a friend with prostate cancer, successfully treated by Dr. C].

I got a vasectomy and it was a great experience...didn't think I'd ever be able to say that but it's true. Very painless and I recovered very well.

I'm a 61 year old male with urology issues. I made an appointment with Dr. Capello on recommendations from family members. I was extremely pleased with the staff and Dr. Capello. He was very pleasant and made me feel at ease. He was very patient and took the time explain my condition and what was causing the problem. He really put me at ease as I was extremely nervous! I would recommend him without hesitation.
