We are so thankful for Dr. Capelo and his staff. My daughter had a growth plate fracture that was missed at another local orthopedist and we were treated poorly overall there, as if my 9 year old swollen wrist after falling in gymShow more was nothing, we later found Dr Capelo who treated us with respect and kindness and after getting a cast and doing follow up X-rays, we now see the evidence of the growth plate fracture and it’s healing. Thankful for his thoroughness and compassion. His experience and expertise helped my baby girl. Highly recommend!!
Dr. Capelo is very thorough and knowledgeable. He is able to diagnose what pediatricians can miss due to his experience and expertise. When you have a competitive athlete who gets injured you never want to hear they need to take aShow more break from playing. However, he helps you understand the why and benefit of doing what is right for the athlete for long term health and prevention of reinjury. Thank you Dr. Capelo and team for all the fantastic things you do!

More About Dr. Roderick Capelo, MD
Love Dr Capelo and staff! Always super friendly and helpful
Very cool physician
While I was initially going to express frustration about the wait to see the doctor, once Dr. Capelo entered the room, I understood completely. His exam was so thorough and comprehensive. He explained treatment options in easy to understand terms. He was wonderful with my daughter.
Dr. Capelo and staff are awesome. I would recommend this practice to anyone who needs a pediatric orthopedic specialist.
Great physician and staff!
Everyone was very welcoming
We were able to get scheduled right away, Dr. Capello was very attentive and informative made some recommendations that have really helped with recovery quicker than we expected.
Dr Capelo spent time reviewing our case, did a thorough assessment of my kiddo, explained things to me in both lamens terms and then some of the more complex questions, and ended with a clear outline of next options and timelines.
The Doctor and the staff are very good from the medical point of view. Unfortunately they need to do a lot better in the estimated time per visit. The Doctor checked my son between 40 - 60 later than the appointment time. This happened in 2 of the 3 visits made.
Dr. Capelo and staff genuinely care about their patients. They are very responsive and thorough.
Dr. Capelin was very thorough and took time to confirm our needs were met! His team took great care of our daughter!
Amazing explanations. Dr. Capello always takes the time to answer all my doubts and questions. He also makes himself available after hours and during weekends if anything out of the normal happens.
