    After seeing a podiatrist & 2 top surgeons (Manhattan) it was found I had a 50% tear in my Achilles tendon.I hadn't been able to walk, go down stairs, and at times, sleep.In addition, having twin 5 year old girls, it was difficult for me to engage in any activities with them.I'm 61 years old & was told (because of my age) that rehab wouldn't help & I needed surgery.I then saw Dr. Chapman, who recommended a boot, heel lifts and 3 months of PT.I'm fine now! I highly recommend Dr. Chapman.

    I came into Dr Chapmans office suffering terribly with plantar fascia. Dr Chapman performed surgery and changed my hole outlook on the way a doctor can make a difference in someone,s life.I am truly grateful to Dr Chapman for making such a difference in my life. I highly recommend this fine young man to anyone having problems such as I had.

    Dr. Chapman did a wonderful job repairing a ruptured tendon to my big toe. He also had to shave a significant bone spur/spike that had caused the rupture. I now have a small scar and complete use of my foot -- considering how much I walk, that's a major accomplishment. And, unlike the stereotypic surgeon, he has a pleasant, friendly "foot side" manner.
    Last June I fell five feet straight drop and broke my ankle, as I was down touched my foot no feelings, it was separated from my leg, I held my foot with my hand tight to my leg and held my leg with my arm, as I hopped 10 feet upstairs with my good leg, holding the rail with my other hand. I was taken to Richmond U Medical Center, where Dr. Cary B. Chapman performed surgery, four month later I can walk, run, with only occasional minor pain. Dr. Cary B. Chapman is a GENIUS!!!

    Extreme pain left heel spur. MRI was scheduled Dr. And myself went over my options and decide with surgery. Over two years in pain now pain free forgot what that felt like. Very easy to communicate with and staff is the same way. No problems 6 months after surgery.. I would highly recommend!

    We met with Dr. Chapman and found him to be caviler & uncaring. He prescribed a "boot" be worn on my son's right foot for 6-weeks to stabilize a condition that he could not identify or diagnose. The condition became worse after wearing the boot. When we returned to the office, he laughed and said..."oh you really wore the boot? Most of my patients don't even wear it" This guy is arrogant, uninformed and destined for a series of malpractice law suits over the course of less than shining career.

    This is the worst doctor I have ever visited in my life. Don't ever go see him. He will make you worse off than when you started and he does not care about you at all. He is money hungry.

    Dr. Chapman and his staff were absolutely fantastic to me during the whole time of my treatment, before, during and after my operation. He eased my fears and was very kind which I so appreciated. Even three years later when I need a follow up exam for a minor problem, they remembered me and took great care of me. I would highly recommend Dr. Chapman!

    Dr. Chapman is a personable and caring doctor who listens well. I like his personality very much.He places more emphasis on patient care than patient payment. His staff is very attentive and professional. After having surgery on November 20, 2015, he has continued to provide excellent after care. I would definitely recommend him to others.

    Dr. Chapman was thorough, accurate and caring. Appointments are never rushed, all questions get answered and his prognosis has always been spot-on. Additionally, the office staff is patient and kind.

    Dr Chapman is EXCELLENT. I found him via a referral from another physician for a second opinion. He confirmed that I had a torn plantar plate and surgery was the only course to correct the condition. I generally avoid surgery as I do not scar well, and heal very slowly, his recommendation was to wait as long as possible, until it became a quality of life issue. I returned several months later and he recently preformed the repair surgery. I could not be more thrilled with the results.
    He was fantastic as is his staff
