As a SEVERE I.P. (Intractable Pain) patient, thus far, Dr Chapman has scored highest marks, IMHO. He is one of the nicest persons I've ever met - not just one of the nicest DRS. His bedside manner is second to none. I believe he truly cares about the well being of his patients and i believe he is genuinely compassionate - not phony or putting on a facade. My wife went to him for two years before I asked him if he'd be willing to take on my case - which is very complex/complicated at the least.

I don't know what type of practice this is but it's not one where you meet the doctor. I saw his shoes once and will never again. Pain is a serious problem and I can't find anyone to explain to me what is wrong!
in Staten Island, NY |
Dr. Chapman is a wonderful and compassionate doctor who not only helps alleviate my pain but is also the one to diagnose my multiple myeloma through a biopsy of my vertebrate in the area I had my pain!!!! Thank God for him. It is comforting to know he takes the extra step. Who knows how long before I had been diagnosed if it wasn't for him. Dr. Chapman does not hesitate to try different options to make sure I am comfortable enduring my chemotherapy. I wouldn't trade this doc for the world!!!!

I have had an interenting experience with Dr. Chapo! Although he does not meet with me in a regular basis, he has helped me a lot. I usually see different NPs/nurses and they have been super helpful. Dr. Chapman has identified the best clinical interventions to manage my spine pains. Millions of thanks to friendly staff too!

I experience low back & nerve pain to inner, outer & sometimes back of my thigh. MRI revealed severe stenosis. Dr. Chapman treated me successfully for 10 yrs. before I consented to a fusion of L4, L5. I continue to see Chapman for intermittent relief. A caring, understanding & resourceful physician who will not hesitate &recommend alternative treatment when his is not providing adequate relief. Also, he & his staff explain my treatment protocol & what to expect in a user-friendly manner.

Dr. Chapman is a life saver when it comes to my back pain. His bed side manner was humble and considerate. I had received the proper treatment according to my findings and have been feeling better after only just a few injections. I would recommend my closest family and friends to his office. I had a great experience in his office considering the great amount of pain I had came in with. Top notch doctor and am grateful for being referred to his office.

Great doctoring, but imossible to reach for advice about physical therapy that made condition worse!
in Staten Island, NY |
