      Dr. Chappell should not be in practice. My experience with him caused me to have another surgery, for the same thing that he was suppose to have done, a year later. He is a self serving, careless individual. After he walks out of the surgery room, he never wants to see you again!! There is no post-op appt. or ANYTHING. If you do get to see him, which I did after calling every day for 2 months, he acts as if you are a nuisance & wasting his valuable time. If you want to get better, AVOID HIM

      He doesn't care for patients anymore. I mention symptoms,he pretends to be listening while typing on PC before I say anything. Won't check my neck unless I insist, how can he treat without looking?. Like a phone consult! I thought he would be good since he's also a professor. He took right after without checking on me or telling my loved ones how things went. He told me he needed to wrap up my WC case & said I reached MMI status & lost benefits due to that. Now I'm seeing other Drs. Avoid him!!

      The worst experience of my life. Would NEVER reccomend this guy to ANYONE!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
