Seeing Dr. Caponero has been a breath of fresh air. She is friendly, kind, and truly cares. She'll review your charts, come in with things to talk about and discuss, rather than just asking if you have any questions for her and that's it. Being that this is my first pregnancy, I'm new to all of this! I don't know a lot of things. I love the fact that she always has information to share, let's me know what I should be doing or what I can expect at that point in my pregnancy. She goes thru and explains everything, and THEN asks if I have any questions. I feel like I'm truly being guided along and cared for which I haven't felt from some of the other doctors. I would recommend her to anyone!
