Dr. Robert Kapicka has the following 2 specialties
- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I've been going to him for decades. He's not test crazy or an alarmist. He is good at giving practical advice about health conditions and getting tested. In general he is a joy to visit during my routine health checks because I know he's going to be practical and level headed about whatever I want to discuss regarding my health.
The following response was written by a representative of the NCH Medical Group on behalf of the physician. Thank you for your kind review. Take care.
Dr Kapicka is a new physician for me after seeing one MD for about 10 years. I was worried that he did not know me and that I would not get the care I needed. One week after I first saw Dr Kapicka I received abnormal results on a screening exam. He has been amazing with his follow up and has even called me on his day off to tell me the results, answer any questions, and make referrals. His manner shows care and concern, and he stayed on the phone to discuss options.
I would NOT recommend this "doctor" or office. WORST DOCTOR EVER. I have never felt so... used? He stared at his computer the ENTIRE time. Rushed the ENTIRE appointment ( a $40 co pay for 15 min? the SHAME!) I did learn one thing from him that i will take with me for the REST of my life. to NEVER let a doctor make you feel RUSHED. you PAID for their time and you should get their FULL attention. DO NOT GO TO THIS OFFICE OR DOCTOR. You wont get any help from anyone, they just brush things off onto eachother and even the site manager, Barbara, will play you like a fiddle like she cares.
