Dr. Cathy M Chapman has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Rude, cold hearted staff

VERY rude receptionist & manager. Doctor spends more time on computer than with patient. They are STRICTLY about money & NO care for patient at all. I've been overcharged for EACH visit & had to be refunded. Read the other reviews posted. They are not made up. In all my years I've never seen anything like it. Doctors take an oath of God. This doctor & her staff are heartless, inconsiderate, & have no compassion for others. Run & tell your friends to run. There are many more complaints out there. A lot of the patients are elderly & have no way to complain.

Staff is not courteous. Only concerned with collecting your money. Does not check HRA/FSA before charging. Dr. does not have much of a bedside manner. More concerned with the computer than me as a patient. When asking questions, nothing is fully explained, just kind of brushed off. Not returning, and would not recommend to anyone!

The front desk personnel was very rude on the phone. I never got to see the Dr. because the confused front staff confused my appt. They then said I missed an appt. and charged me a missed appt. fee. I never even saw the Dr. I tried to explain my situation but the rude secretary said he fee would not change. They sent me bill after bill for a missed office visit that was not even my mistake. The secretaries also work for a dermatologist that work at a different location. It is very confusing. Would not recommend just because of the secretarial staff.
