Ratings and Reviews
At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
I'm treated as an individual and not just a number. My doctor listens well and asks pertinent questions. She is concerned for my entire health,not just symptoms pertaining to rheumatology. The staff is courteous and very helpful!
I missed my appt. Due to Covid testing. I was stuck there. Dr called while I was there and could not talk to her. She called me later at home. I am very grateful for her call. I have not seen her for a few years. She was very concerned for my well being. She is great. I love her.
Dr Capezio was amazing! She gave me a generous amount of time to learn about my issues so she could make decisions about a diagnosis and how to manage my issues. She gave me the opportunity to ask questions to my satisfaction.
My doctor is terrific. She spends quality time with me: listens to my concerns, answers my questions, asks if I'm comfortable with her plan for my care & always leaves me feeling like I'm in good hands.
Dr Capezio is a kind, friendly and very efficient Rheumatologist. She looks at the â€šÃ„Ãºwholeâ€šÃ„Ã¹ person before discussing a possible course of treatment. She is an emphatic listener and offers several choices to a patient and is able to guide the patient towards making the best decision for themself while being medically effective as well. As a nurse I've worked with lots of physicians and now as a patient I can undoubtedly say Dr Jennifer Capezio is one of the best physicians I've come across and I feel confident being under her care.
Dr. Capezio has been my Rheumatologist since 1995. She has always maintained the highest levels of professionalism and compassion and is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. Although disabled, I strongly believe one of main reasons I have still been able to function at all is because of her knowledge and ability.
Dr. Capezio asked the right questions and with her knowledge and years of experience was able to make a diagnosis that had been eluding my doctors for several years. She ordered several tests and prescribed a treatment, and I have every confidence that she will monitor my condition effectively.
+Dr. Capezio was more visually attentive in listening (while typing on the computer) than other doctors.+Dr. Capezio had manifested a caring and compassionate heart as well as 'trust"belief' in what I expressed regarding my 'physical state of being'.+Dr. Capezio was not \in a rush\"; did not conduct the interview and examination in the 'businesslike-obligatory get-it-done' manner.+Dr. Capezio and the Physician Assistant
Dr. Capezio gave me plenty of time to give her my story and ask questions. She was thorough, compassionate and I never felt rushed or dismissed. One of the most responsive medical professionals I've ever dealt with.
I have been with Dr. Capezio for many years; long before she joined NM; I would not consider any other rheumatologist as long as Dr. Capezio is practicing. Dr Capezio is an extremely knowledgeable, kind, professional practitioner. She is superb at listening and offering" initiating suggestions of care; supportive and reassuring; intuitive with the ability to tailor excellent health care to meet the needs of her individual patients both physically and emotionally. I believe Dr. Capezio is a true servant of medicine. She extends the greatest amount of integrity and respect toward me as a patient. I am grateful to be partnered with Dr. Jennifer Capezio for my Rheumatology needs. I trust and sincerely appreciate Dr. Capezio. Thank you!
Dr. Capezio has been my doctor for over 15 years and she's amazing: Kind, caring, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. I don't know how I would have made it through the years without her. She has been a blessing.

Having a medical team that sees your care as a partnership between doctor and patient is essential to proper treatment in rheumatological diseases. Dr. Capezio sees her patients as a partner in the process of choosing and providing treatments.
Dr. Capezio is excellent. She is very thorough, asks good questions, is nice. She keeps track of non-rheumatology factors as well. She asks questions enough to understand my home activities and makes appropriate recommendations for physical therapy and adaptive shoes.
