Patient Comments (2)
in Grandview, MO |
He wanted to order painful unnecessary tests to confirm my documented history of pain and neuropathy.He denied my symptoms were common to my disease when it is well documented that they are. He was a jerk. Very rude. He contradicted himself, his fellow doctoral associates, and me at every turn in conversation. It was a most distressing experience. I had seen him one time several years before and did not remember exactly why I did not return. Now I remember!

Dr. Chilappa is one of the most knowledgeable rheumatologists I've ever worked with and I've worked with several. He takes the time to listen and provides compassionate options along with educating on the treatment and medications (if needed). I drive 3 1/2 hours to see him because he's just THAT good! He's professional but personable, polite, office staff he has are very efficient and nice. There's really nothing I can say that's negative. My experiences there have always been great!
