Patient Comments (2)

Not satisfied with the way I was treated especially after I called requesting to speak with the Doctor regarding medication he prescribed. He related a message with his secretary for me to return to the referring doctor. Not a personable doctor.

I have found Dr. Edward Chapnick to be one of the most capable, compassionate, and caring physicians I have ever dealt with. His recommendations are carefully thought out after appropriate testing and examination and discussion with the patient.
