What a joke

Maybe Dr. Cappuccino should be made to pay back all the patients who trusted him to help them. He did surgery on me that took him only 45 minutes and had to be redone by another doctor! His fee for that surgery, which was billed to my no-fault insurance, was over $15,000! That amount didn't include his PA, the hospital or follow-up office visits and his poor quality x-rays that my friend who is an x-ray tech, couldn't believe he had the nerve to charge for. Then he charged me $120.00 to get a copy of those x-rays to bring to my new doctor!

He uses patients as guinea pigs for his FDA trials. After reading how much he's suing NuVasive for, I see why he tries to get as many patients as he can to be in his FDA trials. It's a huge money maker for him!

Who the hell would ever go to a doctor with a name like that? Sounds like a coffee joint runner to me.

My boyfriend was a 'victim' of Dr. Cappuccino's shoddy work. He went to him to seek help for years of pain thinking that he would help, but this joke of a doctor used him in one of his 'FDA trials'. Of course, like many of his patients, the surgery did not work, and my boyfriend suffered a lot of complications. The kicker is that Cappuccino tried to pawn him off on our local ER and Primary care doctor, but they were too smart and had him transferred to Buffalo, where he was admitted to the ICU of a Buffalo Hospital. I seriously think the state needs to do a thorough investigation on Dr. Cappuccino. Kudos to NuVasive for not paying him. He probably screwed up another persons surgery using their product! Dr. Cappuccino, you can get away with what you are doing for just so long. Eventually you will be made to pay for all the people whose lives you ruined! I wouldn't let you even touch my dog!

Having correct information and all of it would have helped you not look like such an uneducated fool! Always helps to read the entire article.
