dr. Chaplain is the best Doctor I have ever gone to. he's kind compassionate and always listens to what you have to say. I believe he saved my life by getting me a stress test when all other indicators suggested nothing was wrong and I actually had a major artery that was [...] percent blocked.

The person to draw blood was not in that day, so I was sent down to the lab, where I was expected to wait over an hour. Because of this, I haven't had a blood draw for my tests. Except for this minor hiccup, my experience was exemplary.

I sense genuine interest in my well being and have always been allowed a generous amount of time for discussion.

Dr. Chaplain in my estimation epitomizes what the word physician means. He has either by nature, experience, or training, I suspect all of these become not only very knowledgeable and caring but is able to use this knowledge and empathy to craft for himself as perfect a physician as I have ever encountered. In this age of information overload, he seems to be able to sort through the noise and find the signal that allows him to make wise judgments and decisions. I am a [...] and have occasion to use numerous medical practitioners fairly often in my 80 years, only 1 or 2 others have have com as close to reaching the level that Ted has. [...]
