The Fellow and Dr Kapur could not have treated me better.
I appreciate getting to see this knowledgeable and friendly doctor
Dr. Kapur is good, he is willing to listen to my problem/concern.
Kind and patient doctor. Explained very well, calm and evenly.
Dr. Kapur is an excellent communicator. He asks questions respectfully and listens completely. In addition to excellent medical care, I highly value a physician with whom I can have an understandable conversation. The resulting information helps me to leave the appointment with knowledge that assists me with follow-up self-care.
I believe Dr. Kapur is the smartest, most accomplished physician I have ever experienced. For example, we discussed various lab tests ordered by other healthcare providers. His questions and comments proved very helpful. Not the first time this occurred.
I was very happy to see Dr Kupar again, and very grateful that the respiratory assistant was able to provide me with an improved nasal pillow/head gear. Thank you!!
Dr. Kapur is an excellent provider. Very attentive. Listens to concerns and never acts like he is rushed to go see the next patient.
Doctor was aware of my full case history even though it had been a long time since I had been in to clinic, felt confident that I was getting good recommendations
For this telemedicine visit, Dr Kapur was my only contact. He made it a very pleasant visit.
