Seemed to be bothered

At first Dr. Chiapella Seemed to be very attentive with my issues however the last couple of visits reflected someone that I didn't think she was. I was very much put off by her cutting off my sentences and being in a hurry. I felt like I was bothering her, not as a patient like I should have been treated.

Friendly and Professional

I was very comfortable with my visit to see Dr. Chiapella. She and her staff were very friendly and professional. She took the time to listen, ask questions and explain the medical terminology and how my medication would act, including side effects. I would not hesitate to go back for another visit, if necessary, and would recommend her to anyone contemplating a trip to see a Urologist.

Two Stars

Her staff seemed extremely busy and overworked but had smiles on their faces when it came to patient interaction. As for myself, I didn't care for her attitude when it came to explaining what my results were and how it would affect me. She really seemed to talk down to me as if I had a learning disability, in all actuality I hold a masters degree. She also seemed to have an underlying anger and was rather rude to me when I attempted to ask further questions about my condition.

One Star

I would not send my dog to Dr. Chiapella. Not only was she rude but she was and continues to be incompetent. I would rate her bed side manner in the negatives.
