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.
