You have to wait a long time to get a reservation at the best restaurants. Why? Because they're good! Same for Dr. Caprio - I'm lucky I became a patient of his as soon as he set up shop and have been seeing him for over 10 years. ALWAYS kind, unrushed, attentive, caring. I know it takes a long time for new patients to get in line to see him, but that's just because he isn't going to treat you like a number and squeeze in as many patients as possible. Hence the title: "I'm lucky" ! Ideal Physician.
it takes forever to get an appointment and when you leave a message it takes days for the message to be returned.
