I love Dr Capen amd his staff, so caring and compassionate. The one area where there was a little confusion was when I checked in at the front desk they told me Dr Capen was at 3A. I had been seeing Dr Capen on Hall 3 on Thursdays post chemo. I automatically thought that\'s where I always see him and waited on Hall 3 for 45 minutes when someone finally asked if I had an appointment. when I told her yes she asked with who and when Intols her Dr Capen she said, oh he is at 3A on the 3rs floor. That really wasn\'t anyone\'s fault and thank goodness I was an hour early so still made my appointment on time. would have helped of the girl at the front desk had said 3A on the 3rd floor.
