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!!

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...more

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,...more
