Dr. Chappell's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chappell "My primary interest is teaching. My philosophy is that the patient/doctor relationship functions as a team. However, the ultimate decision in the patients care is up to the patient. A patient cannot make an informed decision about their care unless they completely understand the disease state, treatment options available and possible complications of the disease process or the treatment. I spend a lot of time discussing the disease state with my patients and have them tell me how they wish to proceed with treatment."

Care Philosophy

Dr. Chappell Says:

I greatly appreciate any feedback patients can provide me regarding their experience with my office and myself.  I strive to remedy any concern about their experience.  My goal is to always make patients equal partners in the treatment decision making process and spend a significant amount of time educating them about their disorder.  My intent is to never talk down to an individual, but to assure that we are equal
