It was my first visit with Dr. Caprio. I was apprehensive because I had wanted an appointment with her partner who wasn't available until August. Dr. Caprio was wonderful. She took her time and we discussed my prior medical history and my current health issues and came up with a medical plan for my health. I have been with my previous neurologist since August 2016 but I am changing my care to Dr. Caprio. She was the first neurologist to look at my total health management and not just my neurological issues.

Replacing my previous dr. was no small feat, but *Dr. Caprio filled his shoes & then some. Loved her style - no rush - just great conversation & info. She's a keeper - Having confidence in your dr. is so important - She filled every need for me!!

Dr. Caprio is a wonderful and knowledgeable physician. She is thorough in her evaluation. She made sure that my care was managed appropriately by referring me to her NM Neurology colleague for diagnostic evaluation.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Caprio. She was incredibly professional and knowledgeable, yet was able to translate complicated medical terminology into layman's terms and made it very easy to understand. Great bedside manner.
