I get the impression that because of my age she wants to see me every 4 months. I think it's not necessary.... I am a new patient so not sure if that's why. having diabetes and on metformin should not require me to attend 4x per year .... my opinion

The doctor was very attentive to my needs. The doctor was probably the most concerned doctor I have had about my hands problem. Most doctors find out that I have had it since I was 6 years old and they are like ok on to the next issue. Dr. Chappel really seems to care to find out what is going on with that issue.
