Dr. Cappel has been my doctor for at least 30 years. I trust him implicitly. He cares about his patients which shows in the way he treats people. I contacted his office on the date of this appointment and received a reply and a video appointment with him within 30 minutes. I was scared of what was happening with my health but after speaking with Dr. Cappel and receiving the medications I needed I felt very reassured.
