It was my first visit and of course doing so in the midst of Covid, but I felt very welcomed and I felt as if she listened and was trying her best to understand my history/health. I look forward to building a great relationship with this provider. I've already referred my daughter to her

Really enjoyed. Went to another doctor at the same location that no longer works there for the same issues last year and he didn't do half of what this doctor did. I felt like she really cared when last time I felt unheard. Dr. Chapelle really made me feel comfortable and not confused about next steps.

Dr. Chappell is a rock star! Due to concerns over COVID19 and sheltering my 88-year-old mother in my home, I did not want to come into the office as a cautionary measure and requested either an e-visit or phone call. d Dr. Chappell called me personally later that afternoon and spent enough time going over my symptoms and concerns so that I felt things were fully addressed. As the next two weeks will prove critical as far as COViD19 goes, I really appreciate the flexibility and proactive practices Dr. Chappell have in place.
