Dr Chapman is a brilliant, detailed doctor. I learned more about my body in my first visit with her, then I had in my last 20 years with other doctors ... (5 pregnancies, 3 C-sections) Dr Chapman is not one to coddle but she is caring and very attentive to her patients needs. She was a breath of fresh air to talk to and explained procedures/questions instead of just talking down to me like most doctors do.

Wait time is almost always 1 hour + and actual visit with Dr. Chapman lasts about 5 minutes. Dr. Chapman told me the last time that my wait was due to her training another employee on how to use the ultrasound machine (during my scheduled appointment?!).

After years of pain and sickness and exhaustion, I found Dr. Chapman. Many doctors misdiagnosed me or simply ignored my plea for help! Dr. Susan Chapman never gave up on me and found the solution for my medical issues. Needing a major surgery with other medical problems was a difficult decision to make, but Dr. Chapman was patient, experienced, and understanding. She performed the surgery with expertise and was always available for my recovery care needs. This woman is amazing!

Horrible!!! She prescribed medication to me that we later found out was in National litigation in all 50 states for being linked with birth defects in infants! Hello??? I'm pregnant and she prescribes medication that is currently in litigation for birth defects??? AND she didn't even advise me of the potential risks!!!??? Sounds like professional negligence to me! Her whole office was rude and offensive when we complained about this. No apology, no acknowledgement, no understanding...

If you're looking for a skilled surgeon she's your doctor! She removed my massive fibroids through a large incision in my abdomen. I stayed in the hospital for 2 days after the surgery. I rested at home and went back to work 2 weeks later! No heavy lifting of course but I was off pain meds, able to drive and sit at my computer for most of the day. Yes, she could smile a little more, But seriously what's more important...skills or a smile?? (BTW, I'm from Los Angeles and used to the best at UCLA)
