Dr. Chappell is a great doctor. For me, personally, I like more homeopathic or life style changes to correct things and as a doctor she seems to like to go straight to medication. I feel like she's gotten a little better but I feel like a doctor is really interested in me as a patient when they get a gauge on my preferences when the first health related issue arises and try to work with me. Digging a little deeper to see what the root is instead of just going straight to medicine seems more appropriate as well. Medication has a lot of side effects so I prefer if it's a last resort for me. I do understand that it's necessary at times.
