Ratings for Dr. Valerie Capstick
If you or a loved one has Dr Capstick immediately seek a second opinion or find another doctor. My Mom was treated by her and her team when she was first diagnosed with Stage 1 endometrial cancer in the spring 2016 and they performed the "robotic surgery" a hysterectomy to remove the cancer. She confidently assured my Mom that she was clear of any traces of cancer after the surgery and that she would have quite a few more years with a good quality of life. Well she was wrong and her entire team misdiagnosed my Mom's cancer, it quickly spread to her abdomen "metastatic cancer" Stage 4. My Mom suffered a lot of pain and passed away in the fall 2016. Dr Capstick lacks compassion and bedside manners, she is smug and arrogant and is full of herself. She rudely told my Mom in front of family, "I wouldn't be surprised if you died tomorrow", it brought my Mom to tears. Dr Capstick never considered or cared that my Dad had just passed away few weeks ago from his own battle with cancer. Her own reaction was to give her own professional opinion and she showed that this was a selfless act. Sometimes a person and their family are looking for a glimmer of hope, not a harsh opinion. We switched doctor's and hospital shortly after, my Mom was given palliative care and treated by kind doctors and nursing staff, she was able to pass away with sense of grace and dignity.
I just had a complete hysterectomy by Dr Capstick. Since the day I was told I would need this procedure I have been so scared. Prior to Surgery she came to talk over the steps that would happen in the OR. She was extremely patient, kind and funny. I felt safe after our pre-surgery chat because she was so confident. I knew going in that her and her team were the best.
My sister just passed away at the age of 27. She was a patient of Dr.Capstick at the beginning of her diagnosis. She had surgery and was given the all clear and then after was told that they had made an error and read the reports wrong and my sisters cancer wasn't gone. Critical time passed and we will never know if that time would have made a difference. My sister was an amazing and beautiful person and now she is gone. If I could give 0 stars I would.
I was having a very hard time getting surgery times with other doctors. Dr Capstick had me in the OR within 2 days of my first visit. I am so very grateful for her and her entire team and the awesome job done fixing me up. I have found her to be EXTREMELY approachable, and am confident that if any issues arise relating to my surgery I would be seen by her without hassle. I most certainly don't wish for anymore health issues which would require her professional input, but I liked her so much that I wish we were friends who could talk about things other than my nether regions.
I love her confident personality. She won't BS you. She won't hold your hand, but she will do whatever she can to help you. I owe her more than I can express. I would bet my fertility abilities on her any day. She's the best in her field, and she knows it. Gotta love that confidence!
Dr.Capstick made for me a very stressful time manageable. She is very knowledgeable and is very willing to discuss concerns .She imparts confidence and capability. She was the very best in a not so great scenario. She got things done in a very quick manner and followup was very smooth in her clinics. I cannot thank her enough for what she has done for me.
