Dr. seemed very disinterested like he had other places to be I tried to explain my condition. He said we would really review previous doctors records and get back to me have no concerns about my questions or Anything that I had to say I felt like I was imposing on his time made me feel like I should leave

I appreciated the ability to discuss openly and be provided with options to my own health care
Jul 26, 2023
Could have been alittle more personal

Overall, the experience was not what I expected. I understood there was a consultation and time crunches, but it felt very transactional. Waiting roughly 40 minutes just to receive a 5 minute advice I could've researched on medical articles online.

Dr Capener is awesome. I put off treatment for hemorrhoids for too long because it's embarrassing! He made the process easy and put me at ease. 3 simple treatments and they are gone!

He didn't do much

Thanking all that were involved for their excellent care! It was so appreciated!

He made me feel like I was wasting his time. I'm the one who took time off work to see him about my problem.
Feb 21, 2023
He was only able to speak to me for a couple minutes. In my opinion, there was no need for this visit, everything he asked was it more detailed in my intake notes, which he seemed to acknowledge that he did not read.

The doctor's service was not what I expected.. neither in medication nor a treatment for my illness and my appointment that would make it within 2 months
Jan 12, 2023
The doctor had looked at my chart prior to coming in the room and was able to discuss treatment options without having to ask me why I was there. After my appointment I remembered some questions I had that I wish he would have asked me about but otherwise he was fine.

He seemed disinterested in my case and spent less than 5 minutes with me.
Nov 13, 2022
Everyone else there was really kind and helpful. The doctor was the one disinterested so I would probably No recommend him.
Nov 12, 2022
It is the first time I have not had excellent care.
Nov 8, 2022
Even though he was late, he wasn't rushed with me which I appreciated. I felt like he listened and made an appropriate plan of more testing with me coming back to discuss results and further care.
Oct 13, 2022
Because of the doctors attitude I would not recommend him to anyone.
Oct 2, 2022

Seemed rushed and superficial.

Dr Capener seemed to be very irritated and lacked any concern for anything I said. My sister was with me and she made the comment that he wasn't very friendly. This was her first time meeting him. Not sure what his problem was but NOT GOOD!
Jun 20, 2022
Quick and effective and efficient
