    I had two separate conversations with Dr. Kaptik about medications that I did not want during the procedure he performed. I also talked with his co-worker, anesthesiologist and nurse stating the same request. Dr. Kaptik new exactly what I wanted and did not want but he did what he wanted anyway administering a drug that I clearly stated I did not want, wiped my memory and left me sedated for about six hours. This is very arrogant and unethical doctor who went against my request and what he agreed to do for the procedure he performed.

    In July 2020 at Allenmore Hospital, Dr. Steven Kaptik performed an ERCP on my husband. From the moment we met Dr. Kaptik the day before the procedure, we felt completely at ease with him due to his pleasant and calm demeanor. Dr. Kaptik clearly explained the risks and the goals of the procedure. He is confident about his skills without being arrogant. Thanks to his expertise, my husband sailed through the ERCP and had no complications. After the procedure, Dr. Kaptik debriefed us. He was honest and direct and forward-thinking. Clearly he loves his profession and genuinely cares about his patients. All of my statements about clear communication, upbeat attitude, and expertise are true also of Leah Olson who is Dr. Kaptik’s Physician Assistant and Dorothy Gonzaga, Nurse Practioner. Before the ERCP they too spoke with us at length, never rushed, and thoroughly answered questions. The three are an excellent team. We are very grateful for their competent care.
