As the Co-Chair of ProHealth's Center for Neck and Back Pain, Dr Caprarella helps develop a comprehensive, patient-centred approach to healthcare that helps people with long-term neck or back pain deal with their problems. She tries to treat pain without surgery and talks to patients about a plan for their overall health, which may include working with other health and wellness providers. Dr Caprarella's approach considers what the patient and their family want, how much money they have, and their cultural values.
From 2020 to 2021, during a worldwide pandemic, Dr Caprarella was crucial in helping ProHEALTH Care Associates switch to telemedicine. She worked as a Physician Leader for Telemedicine Development, working with other development team members to set up usage guidelines and other protocols that made it easier for healthcare services to be given when the distance was a big issue.
Since 1995, Dr Caprarella has had a license to practice medicine in New York, and since 2004, she has been Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). When an ABPN-certified specialist treats a patient, they can be sure they are getting care from a professional with specialized skills and knowledge in diagnosing and treating brain injuries and illnesses.
