Ratings for Dr. Samuel M. Dicapua
Dr. DiCapua has been the PCP for both my husband and I for nearly 13 years. We find him and his associate, Dr. Cote, to be knowledgeable, responsive, personable, and helpful in recommending and choosing the appropriate treatment. He is not reluctant to refer to other care providers when needed, as was the case with our previous PCP. He is genuinely interested in what the patient wants. We would most certainly recommend Dr. DiCapua or Dr. Cote to potential new patients.
At my appointments the dr seemed to be hurried, only once in 4 times did he take vital readings, such as weight height etc. He did take time to go over test results and "scolded" me into feeling like I was a child. He wrote scripts for me and when the costs were outrageous he offered NO other alternatives except to say YOU HAVE to Have this medicine. ( what did they do before this ??_) I was very taken aback when he basically walked out of the exam room and never came back to talk to me about alternatives. I since have found another Dr to address my concerns. I would not recommend Dr Dicapua.
He is not thorough... many reasons for this comment over the last 5 years...will be seeking a new GP for both husband and myself. It's too long to go into but I've heard about many other cases(not only ours) where his dangerous lack of initiative has put many in grave danger... I will not state details because of liability issues but just a heads up to others to seek a different Dr if you are over 30. He's great with a wonderful laid back bedside manner if you are very healthy and very young.
