Wayne W- I feel fortunate to have wound up in Dr. Chapmans office and lucky to have been under the care of his team. Dr. Chapman was forthright and the detail of pre and post-op instruction was comprehensive. I had a pleasant experience at every level of care during my procedure. I was in a good deal of pain showing up and have had excellent results since.

Dr Chapman is an amazing doctor. After seeing a handful of other doctors who did not know what they were doing, I talked with Dr Chapman. The difference was unbelievable. He’s extremely knowledgeable, intelligent and professional. He knew exactly what was wrong with my back and had a clear solution to fix it. It saved my life. Just saw him for a check up. Im 7 years post op. Still just as wonderful. I highly recommend you talk to him and see for yourself. Can’t recommend him enough

Dr Chapman and his team were fantastic ! My wife had been waiting many years to find a surgeon that could correct her spine deformity . He is a kind compassionate doctor who performed a two part complicated operation. He knew how to read my wife and walk her through this journey. This is going to be life changing for her. Thank you and your team Dr. Chapman.

I have seen a number of doctors to get an opinion on the cervical spine surgery that I needed. Dr. Chapman offered me the best procedure for me - laminaplasty. He explained the procedure, what to expect and what the risks are. It’s been 6 weeks since my surgery, it went very well and the recovery has been exactly as explained.

Once my husband and I met Dr. Chapman and listened to his suggested plan for my surgery, we were confident Dr. Chapman could help correct a dangerous issue with my neck. Last August, 2017, Dr. Chapman fused C2-T2 avoiding my complete paralysis or death. I appreciated his candor in what to expect with the recovery. Now after nine months, I must say we are so grateful for the skills of this confident and reassuring specialist. Dr. Chapman restored me to my family. What a gift he has to share!

Dr. Chapman is great. However, the pre-surgical visit took almost an hour and a half and was a complete waste of time! I saw 4 different people that said the exact same thing. It's no wonder healthcare is so expensive! The appt could've taken place over the phone or not at all! Also, 2 of the nurses were not friendly and border-lined on rude! Also, it would be very helpful for patient planning to know what time check-in is for surgery rather than letting them know last min.

I know he is a technical wizard from speaking with other Orthopaedic surgeon colleagues of mine, and combined with his caring and compassionate manner, I knew he was my man when it came to the complex spine surgery I needed! My decision was correct!!

I highly recommend Dr. Chapman, as a spine surgeon! He corrected my spinal curvature and scoliosis from 47 degrees to straight!! He was amazing! I was only in the hospital 4 days! He was very helpful in explaining all of my options, and very professional. I have utmost respect for Dr. Chapman!! Penny McG.

Dr Chapman is technically very strong in what he does. Period. That is it. Once done, he is done in his mind; not interested in hearing about any lingering symptoms or their potential impact holistically. His front end staff, eg scheduling surgery and insurance approval, are brusk verging on rude. (In their defense they did appear over worked.) Over the 11 months I was under his care, additional staff / head nurse were hired who were bringing a fresh approach to customer care and service.

Finally called from waiting room 55 minutes after my appointment time; no reasons for or apologies about the delay. Dr. Chapman - extremely knowledgeable, professional, businesslike - had a scribe writing all his notes so he could concentrate on the patient. Decided I needed surgery very soon, recited a litany of potential risks in a grocery-list fashion several times, You could die; you could have a stroke, you could be blind, ... Really knows his stuff, but no bedside manner to speak of.
