    How was your appointment with Dr. Kaptik?

    Jul 31, 2020
    In July 2020 at Allenmore Hospital, Dr. Steven Kaptik performed an ERCP on my husband. From the moment we met Dr. Kaptik the day before the procedure, we felt completely at ease with him due to his pleasant and calm demeanor. Dr. Kaptik clearly explained the risks and the goals of the procedure. He is confident about his skills without being arrogant. Thanks to his expertise, my husband sailed through the ERCP and had no complications. After the procedure, Dr. Kaptik debriefed us. He was honest and direct and forward-thinking. Clearly he loves his profession and genuinely cares about his patients. All of my statements about clear communication, upbeat attitude, and expertise are true also of Leah Olson who is Dr. Kaptik’s Physician Assistant and Dorothy Gonzaga, Nurse Practioner. Before the ERCP they too spoke with us at length, never rushed, and thoroughly answered questions. The three are an excellent team. We are very grateful for their competent care.
