Great experience all around. Dr. Chappell and staff are amazing. He listened to what I wanted and exceeded my expectations. Wish I had the surgery years ago! Great chairside manner and great to work with. He and his nurses followed up with me anytime I had a question. Ashley was a great help too. Can't say enough great things!
