I was so happy with the attention Dr Cappel paid to me and my questions. I greatly appreciated the amount of time, as well as his suggestions for me to take. I believe that my health is my responsibility, but I need the guidance and advice of a professional, and Dr Cappel has already helped me, with one visit.

DR CAPPEL is an exceptional doctor who always shows both a professional and personal approach to me. As his patient he always takes time for diagnosis,treatment options,reviews previous history,and has communication skills that make make me feel very comfortable and confident.Perfect physician/patient experience.Always take time to ask if I have any questions and then takes the time for answers that are both thorough & thoughtful. I always recommend Dr. Cappel to friends and family.

My wife has been going to Der Cappel since 1978 and encouraged me to see him for my medical treatment. He is kind, considerate, and thorough. He listens carefully to his patients and treats them with respect. His staff is always attentive and respectful, too.

Dr. Joseph Cappel and staff provided me with excellent care as always. He has encouraged me to attain my health management goals as I have my Hemoglobin A1C at near perfect range and I'm at a healthy weight that I haven't been in years. He is an awesome physician!

I have been a patient of Dr. Cappel for 38 years and he has been the best doctor a man could ever hope to have in life. He has literally saved my life twice and I feel that he cares about me and is my friend as well as the most knowledgeable primary care, physician that I could possibly have. He has a great staff and Dr Clark is a great support doctor also. I count it a privilege to say this man is my doctor and I would support him in any way possible.
