Ratings for Dr. Joesph G. Capecchi
I was referred to Dr. Capecchi through my mom's co-worker. I'm a 22 year old who was developing cervical cancer. I had numerous colposcopy's before, and a LEEP procedure. I switched to Dr. Capecchi so I could have a doctor in Minneapolis. He actually showed me my cervix before doing the biopsy, and explained what he was doing as he was doing it. It was the first time a doctor took the time to show me what was happening and describe it in detail. I expressed how anxious I was about my results because if the LEEP didn't take care of the cells, I was apprehensive about the "next step." At my prior clinic I waited a month to find out my lab results. Here, Dr. Capecchi called me PERSONALLY the next day from an at home private number to tell me that my cells were normal and not to worry. I've never felt rushed at an appointment and he answers all my concerns/questions. I definitely recommend him.
The Doctor is nice and friendly. The clinic staff can be rude, especially the lady that is at the front desk. I was left in the room for over an hour with no one to even check on me. I understand that Drs. can run behind, but I wasn't even warned that the Dr. was running late. I found it very rude and a waste of my time.
As his patient, I felt like I had his full attention during my appt. and I felt he was really listening to me. That was as important as my examination, and he made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Another benefit is that he is very experienced and I felt I could trust his judgement. He addressed my questions in langauage I could understand. A very kind doctor. I would recommend him to my friends and family without hesitation.
This Dr. is a very kind person, however he didn't get to the bottom of the problem for me evn though I saw him quite regularly for pain. He does the job if you are having a baby but he doesn't go into great detail. Not the best for first time pregnancies
I was there because I was pregnant and the baby died. My primary doctor referred me to him so that I could get a D&C. He refused to do it saying that if I just wait a few weeks the baby will naturally come out. For obvious reasons, that wasn't a choice. I had already waited several days to see him. Now I would have to get in to see another doctor. But what made me so mad was the gall that he had by trying to convince me that I should wait. I should not have been scheduled to see him in the first place. But he had no empathy for my situation.
