My visit to Dr. Caputo's office was very comforting as usual. I needed to see him for peace of mind before his retirement in December, 2019. He will be missed by me and my sister, Agnes Asaram, whom he treated for ovarian cancer 10 years ago. He is the BEST. I would recommend to all my female family members and friends a million times over.

Monday September 23 was one of the saddest days of my life. I went to my final visit with Dr Thomas Caputo. I felt so lost yet controlled my feelings because I could sense he was somewhat sad and nervous about retiring. How can such a superstar first rate excellent doctor retire I kept thinking. What will happen to all of us? I begged him to find a replacement as good, kind, caring and highly thorough and knowledgeable as himself. However such a deed is impossible to do. He has closely monitored me, operated on me, given me hope and support and now he is retiring. I wish him well, because such a hardworking man deserves time for himself and family, finally after taking care of his patients so many years. He is the best Dr I have ever had!

Dr. Caputo is undoubtedly the most knowledgeable, dedicated and caring medical professional I have ever encountered. He defines excellence. I have been a patient of his for 10 years. I would not be here if it were not for Dr. Caputo's skillful, careful, and consistent approach to practice. Most of all, you cannot help but be struck by the decency of this hard-working person -- someone completely committed to his patients. My entire family loves him -- we are very grateful to have received such extraordinary care. You could do no better than Dr. Thomas Caputo.

Dr. Caputo saved my life from a very aggressive cancer - 18 years ago. He is retiring from medicine after 50+ years, and my final visit was a week ago. I was so very fortunate to have had the benefit of his wisdom, care, and compassion for those 18 years. A true gentleman and a wonderful physician. I will miss him in so many ways.
