Dr. Cappell has been my physician for over 25 years! I come into the visit prepared with questions & he is always very honest in his replies (if he doesn\'t know, he admits it). He is a good listener & treats his patients as if they have a brain (especially us females). He is the best of the old-fashioned doctors - his first line of treatment is not drugs nor surgery, he tries to get at the root cause (which is an art form being lost with today\'s M.D.s). We will be sorry when he retires! Don\'t retire, Dr. Cappell!!
