    Great Dr. -I was in St. Vincents for 5 days and he made it a point to stop in every day and discuss any concerns that I had after my operation which he performed.

    Dr. Chappano made both me and my mom very comfortable. He answered all our questions and never tried to rush us. He has an easy going manner and is very down to earth!

    Great Surgeon who removed my thyroid. Really takes his time to explain my cancer to me and what are my options. English is not my primary language so he even worked with me in his office with a language phone app I have on my phone, and had a doctor on hand for my surgery that spoke my native language. Dr, Chappano really took the extra time to make me comfortable with my condition and procedures I needed to treat my condition.
