Hardware Failure-lumbar region
Dr. Chappuis and his staff have been absolutely amazing! Dr. Chappuis and his staff listened and explained findings, procedures and answered questions to the utmost fullest of their abilities. They are caring, considerate and professional with all aspects throughout my entire experience with them. I am extremely happy and grateful to Dr. Chappuis and his team for helping me with my problematic hardware issues they were causing in my life. I do not have enough words on how thankful I am to him and his team to finally find someone who understood my problems and complaints and looked at all my imaging results along with complaints and came up with a plan to alleviate my pain and enrich my outlook for the future. I had a couple broken screws and loosened screws in my lumbar from a previous fusion. This created increasing problems for me and with the help of Dr. Chappuis and his team immediately after surgery I felt a huge difference in my lower back.

I went in for a consult with Dr. Chappuis, and found him very personable and not at all pushy. He asked what i wanted to do, which I appreciated. He explained lots of options, which I took and really appreciate the time.

I couldn’t say enough good things about SCA, Dr. Chappuis, and the staff. I’ve used the practice for multiple pain issues and each time they have been flawless. The office is a one stop shop which makes it so convenient. The doctor’s office, MRI, physical therapy, and surgical center is all located in the same building which makes it so much easier scheduling appointments, especially scheduling more than one appointment. I cannot say enough good things about SCA and working with Dr. C. He really listens to you as opposed to other doctors who will ask you a checklist of questions to deduce their opinion of what is wrong with you. He takes his time to explain and break down what is the issue and where the problem stems from. You never feel rushed during your appointment and it’s important to him he addresses all of your concerns. While I had some anxiety at the thought of possibly having to undergo surgery, Dr. C was calm, addressed my fears and concerns until I felt confident.

Patient beware! First, I received an order for an MRI but when I went to schedule it the order had the wrong patient name. The hospital and I both called for weeks being transferred from one department to another. They could not figure out which provider I saw or locate my records and I never received a corrected order and therefore could not have the MRI. Second, the billing department never filed my secondary insurance despite repeated requests and sending copies of my insurance card. The insurance company even called the provider on my behalf to request that they file a claim. Even though they never filed my insurance they turned the amount over to collections.
