Long wait

I'm in the office right now. My appointment was almost an hour ago and I'm still sitting here in the waiting room. The wait seems longer when you actually get back to a room. All I gave to do here is follow up with a medication, and the wait is unbelievable. At one point, 3 people were standing because there weren't enough seats for the amount of people here. I love Dr. Kapon, and love that she's a "one stop shop", but she stretches herself too thin and I feel she doesn't spend as much time with you in a room as she should. I read another review that says she was on call for the birth of their baby and didn't see the baby until 34 hours after the birth. Not sure if that's true, but if that is true, that is terrifying and I may have to find another doctor.

One Star

Dr. Kapon was the on-call pediatrician at the hospital where our baby was born, and did not see our baby until 34 hours after she was born. She also held up our discharge from the hospital because she would not return the calls of the nurses. Nurses and the supervisor of the Dept. came in our room to apologize, stating she was wrong on both accounts and they have received only negative feedback for her. The nurse even warned us about her before any of this. She didn't care about us or our child

Thoughtful doctor!

She's really good at remembering her patients. She recognized me at my job and reminded me of my very appointment. If you have children, did you know she will set aside Fridays for children only? She's good at what she does which is it gets kind of busy in her office...very. So to my delight, Progressive Women's Care opened a 2nd office which she works out of so the wait time is less than when all the patient trafficking went to one place.

Three Stars

Dr Kapon is a super nice lady, she seems to care about her patients. But the wait time is ridiculous, I have been in that office for over 2 hours on more than one occasion. She is spread too thin & needs to bring in another Dr or Nurse Practioner to help. The staff was for the most part nice but they are also taking the brunt end of a busy office. The office hours are short & sporadic & full which makes the chances of getting a same day appointment slim to none. Honestly if you value your time & need to be in and out this is not the office to go to. She is a great Dr but when it comes to being a single mother balancing two kids & work... I had to switch.
