Last year a general plastic surgeon did a bleph on my upper and lower eye lids. The lower lids are now ectropion. Needing an eyelid repair I was advised to see an American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery member. Dr Chapman is that and has years of experience. My husband and I really like Dr Chapman and her staff.

Dr. Chapman and her staff have the patient's best interest in mind. Dr. Chapman takes her time explaining each step and giving all options available. Her staff are very calming and are very specific with instructions and ask if you have any questions. You never feel rushed or uninformed. Dr. Chapman is a perfectionist, jus the type of person you want working on your eyes. This is a 5+ star office.
