The entire team, from the one who answered the telephone, to the doctor himself, I found to be personable, good eye contact, pleasant, anxious to do anything to help. Dr. Capen went ABOVE AND BEYOND to get me on the schedule the next day for a biopsy, keeping us from driving home for 3 hours and and then waiting a few days and then driving back for the procedure. That mean so much to my husband and me!! Praise God, what a wonderful team you have!! :)

Dr. Capen, has been nothing but professional, His bed side manners are awesome. He explained specifically the details of what my case is about. I am so grateful that God gave him to be my physician. That God chose to use his hands and gave Dr. Capen the knowledge to not only help me but, others as well. I would definitely recommend him to other if they need a Clear, Concise, Well abreast physician. I have nothing but, very great reviews for him. I know there are other physicians that God could have used but, God chose Dr. Capen, and I am so grateful. God Bless you all.

Dr. Capen made sure that I knew what was going to be happening with the surgery and, what to expect after surgery. Gave me more of an idea of what was going on inside my abdomen and pelvis area. Made sure any questions that I might have had, where answer to the best of their ability.

This doctor was exceptional, he went over my chart before the check up. This doctor was diligent and went over the Pros and Cons about the Cancer medicine that I would start taking in the future. I will definitely be using him as my Gynecologist in the future.

Dr. Capen is a very good physician for me because he is thorough, calm, and has a very nice nature and presentation. I was nervous going to see him because sometimes specialist have no bed side manner and can be dismissive. Dr. Capen was not like that at all. He seemed genuinely concerned about my condition and fixing the issue. I am impressed & at ease with Dr. Capen!
