in Umpire, AR |
My husband and I are very thankful and grateful to Dr. Chappell for diagnosing him ; taking every precaution to make sure the diagnosis was accurate and correct. My husband's case was not typical. When Dr. Chappell did my husband's surgery, he was very thorough in explaining every step that would be taken before, during and after surgery. His entire staff was amazing! They were very kind and helpful. Dr. Chappell himself would call and check on my husband. That meant so much to us! We love him!

Dr. Chappell provided wonderful care for my 83 year old dad. He had to skin graft a very large open wound from cancer on his temple and eyelid. Dad had another open wound from cancer that was not scheduled to be done, but he did it for dad. He had pictures made during the long surgery, so that I could see what was done. He was so helpful with a great bedside manner. Would recommend and use him again! Review age is for my dad..
