When I first went to him I did not expect much. Even tho I had been hit by a car @ 70 mph,crushing 3 vertebre,which led 2 two H,discs...I for 6 years turned down Pain meds. Finally I boke down and was put (by other docs) every pain pill on the block.They made me into a zombe. I went, to 3 Neurosurgeons all said we cant do fusion,stick pain meds. I went in to detox and went through living heck to get off the crud ,then lay in a bed 4 a year until I was recommended to Dr. C! I expected nothing and got the best pain management Drs. in the state. Not only did he address the pain i n my spine-but also the pain inflicted on me by other docs (like I was sa bad person),and even more by the Pharmasists (you take WHAT). Today I live in mild pain-Dr.C knows that more is not always the answer and the pain we know covers the pain inflicted on us. SO please,if you are suffering,stop it and make an appt. with Dr. Chapman. Yes sometimes he is a bit of a wait,but you "get it" with the time he takes w/you.
I could tell on my first visit, this is a real doctor. The very first doctor who actually sat and listened to me. All other doctors spoke in a manner of being superior in intelligence. Doctor Chapman talks to you, not at you. He has given me a qulaity of life I haven't had in many years. THANKS Doc for caring!
Dr Chapman has helped me greatly. He always makes time for everyones problems! His office help goes out of their way to help you.
I've been going to Dr Chapman for well over 8 years is a wonderful Dr a wonderful man very kind and without him I would be living in a life of pain. Thank you Dr Chapman if you're looking for a doctor that will listen to you care about you and take care of you then you found the man. If you're looking for a quick prescription for narcotics go somewhere else, he's a very knowledgeable person and he picks up on everything. I am truly thankful for him and his staff.
This doctor has a wonderful bedside manner. Very observant, picks up on mannersm of other medical problems you may have forgotten to tell him or even things you don't realize. He lets you speak, explains well in layman terms. Very professional and knowledgeable! What a relief, finally, no packed waiting room, staff are kind, they must love their jobs! This Dr. and his staff actually appear to be happy. Efficient and organized. Be prepared, they handle sincere patients, strict rules. I don't suggest anyone to take kindness for foolishness. This office goes by current, up to date laws, make sure you read everything you sign and be prepared to be a responsible patient that truly needs to see this type of doctor and as always with any doc that understands Floridas' ever changing laws, your first appt does not always mean you are going to get a prescription . Obviously I would assume the Dr. decides according to your diagnosis! I would say that this is a top notch office and would definitely recommend Dr. Chapman to anyone that appreciates quality care and a nice environment. If you make an appt,whoever answers the phone, if you tell her what you need to see doctor for she will let you know exactly what you need to bring on your first visit, again people that know what they are doing, I even got a reminder call! I was a bit irritated with filling out new pt. forms but after I saw the Dr. I understood, he is actually concerned about your overall health! Great office and team!
Will contact you if absolutely necessary when office is closed. Knowledgeble, Compassionate. Explains diagnosis. Very good at elaborating so you understand. Been seeing him six year. Would not want to see another Dr, Besides my primary. Efficient as possible. Great Staff.
Dr Chapman has changed my life by seeing me as a person. Individual. Unique. He actually listens, shares of himself, asks pertinent questions and like "Dr. House" keeps digging to make certain that treatment prescribed is wholly accurate. He cares about his patients from the heart not the hype of popularity or his wallet size. As a Pt. of a few years I am moving, but will travel across the country if possible to keep Dr Chapman as my caring physician. At 50 years old I will never find a better Dr than him 'cause I've seen them all!
I started seeing Dr. Chapman several years ago. At that time, he accepted my insurance. When my insurance company changed to one he didn't accept, he worked with me so my cost would be affordable. He is a truly caring doctor and listens to you and spends an appropriate amount of time with his patients. His staff has always been professional and courteous to me. The only negative is, as his practice has grown, waiting time and difficulty making appointments have increased. But, still worth the minor inconvenience.
A nice guy and good doctor, however, habitually runs late getting to work on time first thing in the morning. Lately, he has "called in sick" way too often leaving patients in a bind and his office staff clearly stressed. I am hoping that things change around soon because I really do like him as a person, but I won't miss work again or be inconvenienced anymore.
I transfered to Dr Chapman a few months back, and it has been the best thing I have ever done. He spends ample time with me, and really cares about helping you. If you are looking for a quick script, than he is NOT your guy. He can see through B.S. I only have great things to say about this man. He has saved my life, and cares about my well being. Its not often to find a Dr that spends time listening to you. I wish I would have found him sooner. Thanks Doc. I am clean and sober because of you!!
Dr. Chapman is rare among doctors. He really cares. He is really skilled. He is really educated. He can achieve real changes in your body and health. The only problem is his office staff are young girls who have no clue how to run an office or how to properly interact with patients. If Dr. Chapman was not such a good doctor, I would never go back there due to the rudeness and stupidness of his staff. He needs to fire them and hire some professionals.
I have been a patient of Dr. Chapman's for two years now. With respect to his practice as a whole, I have always been treated with the utmost care and respect by all. My healthy lifestyle has always been the main objective (my social, economic and psychological, wellbeing included). I'd previously been referred to a chiropractor after a terrible car accident, the chiropractor had one goal, to exhaust my PIP insurance as quickly as possible. I'd realized this upon receipt of my very first statement. As for Dr. Chapman, however, it has been my experience over these past years that he has a much higher set of ethics/morals. These include, but are not limited to; practicing integrity in medicine, taking the time needed to fully address his patients' medical questions/concerns (It is important to point out, his answers are never generalized. They are very thoughtfully in-depth and detailed.), insuring that his patients receive the best care and putting our health needs before even his own personal needs in most cases (including emergency after hours attention). Also something I especially appreciate is that it is not uncommon for him to refer to his OWN medical experiences, when applicable, to help a patient better understand the topic at hand. He is not the type of doctor who acts superior to his patients, which makes him much more relatable, adding to the overall quality of the experience during an appointment. Dr. Chapman's patients (in my opinion) are only second in priority to maintaining an ethical medical practice.
100% patient care is a rarity these days when medicine seems to be run more & more like a patient factory, with doctors and hospitals along with pharmacies, lobbyists, and insurance companies in collusion with each other. On the outside of that self-serving circle of power-brokers is Dr. Alfred Chapman. Dr. Chapman is compassionate, considerate and completely devoted to comprehensive patient care. His staff is equally superb. They are always polite & considerate and I always receive a phone call 1-2 days before my appointment as a courtesy reminder. Wait times are minimal. The waiting room is clean, comfortably dim, and quiet. Dr. Chapman spends ample time w/ me as a patient & has been available to speak with me by phone. Over the last 3 years, Iâve had to call the office a couple of times to make an emergency appointment, and each time I was accommodated.
I do everything possible to keep myself healthy and I pay close attention to what doctors do. Dr. Chapman is the only doctor I've ever had who actually cared about me as a person. Not only that, because he is an osteopathic doctor, he has a more holistic, innovative approach than standard doctors. He is a true healer, and a great human being. When I see the negative reviews on this website, I just shake my head in total disbelief that people would slag such a great physician!
My insurance company does not cover visits or pescriptions written by Dr. Chapman because of his OIG sanctions. Very frustrating. You are better off with a doctor who has a clean history.
I saw this Doctor for severe DJD neck pain from an injuru. Loaded me up with Oxycontin, Dilaudid and Percocet. Made me into a hopeless pain pill addict in 6 months. Then threatened to fire me as a patient if I would not pay him to detox me with SUBOXONE? THE Most unethical MD I've ever seen!!!
Dr. Chapman accurately diagnosed me when no other Doctor took the time to. He is patient and caring and took a really long time explaining all my results and blood work to me. He gave me a lot of extra info about my problem...when most doctors dont even bother.I reccomend him to everyone.
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Chapman to anyone. He and his staff are fantastic!
MONEY IS WHAT THIS PLACE IS ABOUT NOT THE PATIENT. YOU GOT ALOT OF MONEY THEN GO HERE
I do not have insurance and this Doctor has done everything possible to help me. Including shots, time spent,and a great deal of caring. You do not have to have money. It seems to me he treats you like someone who does have insuance no matter what. His compassion is high, he works hard to help you or anyone, including my son who died a year ago. I have known many pain doctors and he is one of the finest I have ever had the honor to know. He is a blessing AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT A DRUG ADDICT. He is an honest hard working doctor.
Was treated by him for months for severely painful spinal problems, without insurance. He kept telling me I had to get more and more expensive practices done, and gave me very, very little time to get them done, which is nearly impossible when you're on an extremely limited budget. Finally, after telling me he would not treat me unless I had a procedure done within fifteen days that cost over $300, our relationship was over - basically at the point if I asked him if he really believed I didn't WANT to do everything possible to get rid of my horrendous pain, and he HUNG UP ON ME. What a professional. I was later told that if I had been up front about not having the money for these things, they could have worked something out. So if you do go to the doctor, make sure that if you don't have insurance, or several hundred dollars you're not doing anything with, you do something more than ask them to divide prescriptions because you can't afford a full month's at a time, ask if there's any thing else you could do while you save up for expensive procedures, or tell them that you barely made the appointment because you almost weren't able to get the payday advance necessary for the doctor's fees - none of those will be taken as signs that you're struggling with money. I would recommend a t-shirt with "I'M POOR", or perhaps accidentally giving them your foodstamps card instead of your debit card when they ask for your payment. Maybe, just maybe, you won't be accused of dropping the ball on your treatment and bringing it all upon yourself.I am aware that this is a melodramatic review, but I will make one final plea as for the sanity of I, your narrator; I am in pain. I have been for many years. Because of it, I have been treated like a liar or a drug addict more times than I can count. There is a certain trust that comes naturally when a medical professional treats you like a person in pain rather than some street urchin, and when that person shows absolutely no sympathy whatsoever when you are having an emergency, you feel much more pain than the stabbing sensation in your body. I guess in this day and age, if you don't have a heck of a lot of money, or really good insurance, looking for your trusted doctor to say "I'm sorry you're in so much pain," is absolutely out of the question. Last I checked, the new pain management laws in Florida didn't prohibit basic human decency.If compassion isn't a concern for you, however, by all means, give him and his office a shot. His employees and the office manager are really wonderful people.
