Patient Comments (4)

If hand surgery can be described as a good experience (?), Dr. Chance made it so. He's approachable, takes all the time needed, and as far as I can tell, did a fantastic job with a very complex break!

Very down to earth doctor, and excellent at what he does. Answers your questions and makes you feel that you are his only patient. Would definitely recommend.

Dr. Chance practices a type of medicine that one doesn't see any more. He listens to the patient rather than typing into a screen and he has compassion for your ailment - without being dismissive.
