Dr Chappano is very thorough and has a great bedside manner. He showed my husband and I the cat scan pictures and explained the problem, and how surgery could help. On the day of surgery he had to take an unexpected emergency surgery, which took him many hours. I was concerned because that pushed my survey into the evening and I was afraid he would be too exhausted to do mine. When he came in to talk with me before the surgery he was smiling and ready to take care of me. He did a great job.

Dr. Chappano provides the best care! His staff is caring and friendly. I trust Dr. Chaappano completely. Not only do I see him but my husband does also. He explains what he will do during your surgery and he follows through. He listens and answers any questions and spends lots of time with you. He is truly a great surgeon. The best!!

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.

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.
