I got the letter my family doctor was retiring 4 days after she had left. I started looking for a new doctor. I’m so happy to have found Dr. Trapnell. I read his profile and his education in the UC system was the first thing to impress me. I think UC hospitals are the best. His interest in care for the elderly was also important to me since I have just turned 65. He has a wonderful staff and his kindness and sense of humor are the icing on the cake. Definitely would recommend him.

Awesome!! I am new to the area and tried Kaiser first which I hated. Moved to a HDHP and found Dr. Trapnell. He is amazing. I have seen him twice. He is funny, knowledgeable, and works with me about the insurance. My wife and kids will be seeing him in the future.

He sees each patient as a different entity requiring a different set of medical skills. My long term companion and I came to his practice shortly after he arrived in Santa Rosa. I came to see the difference in approaches from first hand experience. He listens--truly an extension of my psychologist. If he doesn't have a solution he'll tell you. If he refers you to another specialist and it doesn't work, he is willing to re-evaluate needs. Trapnell is truly a doctor's doctor. I am blessed.
