How was your experience with the doctor?She is great, though it is a little wait time, but I think it is because she takes her time to address concerns, but she is worth it.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Capalbo is a terrific doctor. I've been going to her for almost two years now and both her, and her staff have been amazing. Dr. C has always taken the time to answer all of my questions, she's friendly, knowledgeable, comforting, and never judgmental or condescending. Her staff is the same, they remember you, everyone is so polite, and they're detail-oriented and reliable. It's usually a bit of a wait when I go in, but there's one doctor and she doesn't rush people! I'd much rather wait longer than expected than feel like I was being rushed out. All in all it's a great practice.

How was your experience with the doctor?The wait time can be a bit long if you don't have one of the first appointments in the morning, but I feel like that's because Dr. Capalbo takes care to really spend time with you and answer all your questions. So she's definitely worth the wait. Her staff is also super nice!

How was your experience with the doctor?This doctor does not listen to her patients, nor does she care about their questions or what is best for them. I am switching doctors and do not recommend her. I was having issues with a medicine she prescribed. I tried it for 6 months and was not happy with it. I called the doctors office to inquire about switching and/or coming in to discuss my options and she refused to speak with me. She would only speak with me through her secretary and said there is no way she will switch my medication and if I wanted that I had to go to another doctor, which I am doing. A kind, compassionate doctor would ask my concerns and see what we could do, or ask me to come in for a meeting to go over my negative side effects. This doctor did not do that at all, just said no way through her secretary and that was that. It was a very angry, hostile and condescending message I was being relayed via her secretary.  Never again will I see her and I will tell all my friends to go elsewhere. Choosing an OBGYN is a huge deal for a women. It is a sensitive area and we deserve doctors who care and are compassionate, Andrea Capalbo does not care and is not compassionate. There are so many compassionate, kind and smart doctors in nyc, GO ELSEWHERE to somewhere who actually cares about their patients!

How was your experience with the doctor?She's a great doctor but the office wait is a bit if you have time to wait since they book multiple appts in the same time slot.

How was your experience with the doctor?Have been seeming dr Capalbo for years now. I learned to call before i come here so I don't have to wait for hours before my exam. But even that you still wait for about 1.5 hrs. Today I was at the last room where I will finally be seeing by Dr. Capalbo. The nurse said just take everything off n keep the gown n she will be right with you. I have been waiting for 30 + minutes here and it's freezing with the paper gown in this room. So disappointing n I might have to look for a diff doc now. I like doctor Capallbo  but the wait is from 1-2 hours n I have been coming here for the past 8 years.

How was your experience with the doctor?From the moment I walked into Dr. Capalbo's I felt Welcomed and comfortable. The staff went above and beyond to help with questions and waited patiently and kindly as I fumbled to find my documents. From the front desk to the nurse to the doctor the service here was like none that I have experienced before. My nurse Khadijah made me feel comfortable divulging the pletera of problems that had developed in the time in which I lost my health insurance. This I have never experienced at any of my obgyns. The doctor was genuinely interested in me as a person and spoke to me for a bit to get to know me before we started the examination. Trust me I had no idea this is what I needed before starting an examination as no other doctor had ever taken the time to do so. Yet she sat there and spoke to me and calmed my anxiety about having someone I never met see the most intimate parts of my body. My concerns were quickly and knowledgeably explained and a solution right for me and my body was made. I have never been so happy leaving a doctors office confident that all my concerns were addressed their kindness set up my day to be one of the best day I've had in months. Thank you so much ladies.

How was your experience with the doctor?She is a great doctor but the office is so disorganized. You almost always wait at least an hour or more after your appointment time. It’s extremely disrespectful of people’s time. I would not recommend coming here unless you have a lot of free time on your hands. It’s really too bad since she’s a great doctor but her office’s time management skills have not improved at all in the several years I’ve been her patient. I will be going to a new doctor from now on.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr.Capalbo and her staff are truly amazing. They’re all very nice and helpful especially when it comes to insurance matters or lab results. Dr.Capalbo is very patient and answers all your questions never makes you feel silly for asking something. I was recommended her by a friend and I would recommend her to a friend as well. I do agree with others that I wish the office was more “sterile” looking. It’s not that it looks dirty it just looks outdated is all.
