28 years ago my parents found out that I had a condition called strabismus. Several doctors told them that I would need several surgeries to correct the problem. My father contacted Dr. Caputo who explained that I would need one surgery and possibly another 25 years down the road. At that time my father had changed jobs and did not have insurance. He told Dr. Caputo who said, it was more important that his little girl see than any amount of money. Moved to tears my father knew this man cared. The surgery went well and I was fine for a long time.
About 27 years later I began to have some discomfort. Not thinking anything about the strabismus I went to my general eye dr. My eye doctor informed me that it was strabismus and that the specialist in the field was Dr. Caputo.
When I met with Dr. Caputo he was the most caring, soft-spoken doctor I had ever met... and I have met many. He examined me and told me that the previous surgery had been done well and when I told him that he had performed it, he was so moved. I certainly did not expect this man to remember me since I was about a year old when I met him but he apologized more than once for not remembering me!
He went out of his way before, during, and after the surgery to make sure that I was comfortable.
I believe the man who left the review about his wife's surgery is judging Dr. Caputo by his office staff. Unfortunately, I do know the woman he was referring to and she isn't the best person to deal with. However, she is by no means an indication of the quality of care that you will receive when you see Dr. Caputo. I am not writing this review to help him win patients as he is very accomplished and there is a 6 month to see him so his service and reputation speak for themselves.
I also understand why he might not accept insurance anymore. Our country is in a state of confusion in regards to the whole system and everyone is suffering; including doctors who also have to deal with sue-happy patients. Perhaps it's not the best resolution not to accept insurance but knowing Dr. Caputo personallly I can say that he would not decline a person in need of treatment because of money; especially a child.
God Bless this doctor for saving the sight of little babies with such a caring and loving heart.
