Ratings for Dr. Jens R. Chapman
He heals worst cases others avoid. Frankly, most surgeons can't do the complicated surgeries so they don't take the patient. If you take highly impaired people the risk factors are high. The worst cases come through the door 'a mess'. Thank god he did my surgery because an 'average' ortho would have butchered me. I know this because I've worked inside healthcare (Northwestern, Chicago, Mass General, Boston) all of my adult life, and therefore, I know how to pick a "winner" vs. "average" surgeon. Most people pick a surgeon because they 'like' them or 'their friends' told them or looking at sites like this. Go Deeper. Study Up. Training + Experience + level of disability addressed successfully with ALL the facts on board will lead you to Dr. Chapman. I spent a year researching before I approached him. I am qualified to offer this advice.
Do your research on this man. He illegally conducted human experiments during spinal surgeries and killed multiple people. All of this info is readily available from various news sources including Seattle times and King 5 news. AVOID THIS DOCTOR AT ALL COSTS
We are very fortunate for my wife to have been referred to Dr. Jens Chapman. He is an expert in orthopedic and neurology surgery including laminoplasty of the cervical spine; an operation our local orthopedic surgeon would not attempt. He is an outstanding surgeon, was very polite and professional. He took the time to explain in detail the pros and cons of the surgery answering all our questions including several options. He performed the laminoplasty at HMC in early May of 2014 with no complications.
this is a bad doctor - he lies, is rude, and arrogant. thank God for Dr. Wagner after many years of needless surgeries not even done correctly by jens crapman, I will never be right but Wagner at least corrected all of crapman's mistakes (psoas muscle shattered my pelvis, punctured lung) and the pain has lessened-but it will always be there. he also gave me drugs he wasn't to do- read the article written last year by fortune magazine call "Bad To The Bone" will show you the kind of doctor he is-more like a Nazi doctor then a human being. my name is Lora Meade and I live in moses lake and I stand 100% behind what I have said. letting this man operate on me was the worst thing that ever happened to me and my biggest regret in life. those that say he is good also "loved the emperor's new clothes" be careful this man can destroy your life!
Dr. Chapman is very detail oriented. He explains the problem and the possible treatments, so you have choices. He talks with you and not at you. He willingly provides you with additional information and sources that are germane to your particular circumstance. His staff is very helpful in dealing with your insurance company.
Dr Chapman performed a discectomy and laminectomy in 2004. Before surgery, I had extreme pain and sciatica that eventually left me bedridden. I was wary of surgery, and desperately tried treatment with many types of alternative practioners including chiropractors, osteopaths, physical therapists, acupuncturists, Aston Patterning, and spinal injections. I was very concerned about surgery, but and I am now living a pain free life thanks to Dr. Chapmans's great skill and abilities. If you have need of back surgery, you cannot do any better than to see Dr. Chapman.
