everyone in the office was wonderful! the nurse that did my ultra sound was also wonderful! The ultra sound doctor, Dr. Jeff caba was rude, did not make me feel comfortable, did not make me feel at ease and was not respectful when I was asking him questions. I do not appreciate the way he treated me and my family that was with me.

I always am Happy when I see that Dr. Chapa is the MFM Doc when I make my appointment. He explains everything and answers as many questions as you may have. He is compassionate and listens, unlike many other doctors who rush you in and out. I appreciate the time he spends making sure my questions are answered and that I understand what he is saying.

Dr Chapa had to deliver hard news to my husband and me that we had our second miscarriage. Dr Chapa talked in circles and had a hard time getting to the point that I had a miscarriage. I eventually figured out what he was trying to say and started helping him fill in the words. I got a little chocked up and teary, at which point Dr Chapa starred at the floor and never made eye contact again. very quickly after he hurried out of the room. Dr Chapa needs to treat his patients with respect and as a person. the news was hard enough, but to have the dr unable to get to the point and then unable to at least look me in the eye made a difficult experience that much harder.

Reviewed on May 21, 2019

due to my experience with dr Chapa, I will recommend to others to get their ultrasound elsewhere.

Reviewed on May 20, 2019

We saw Dr. Chapa several times throughout our pregnancy - for our nuchal translucency scan and then twice at the end of our third trimester to monitor my low amniotic fluid levels. Dr. Chapa was knowledgeable and compassionate and always made us feel well cared for and comfortable. He answered all of our questions and most importantly, he took great care of our baby!

Reviewed on May 17, 2019

The doctor has great interaction. But I kind of felt like he didn't review my chart very well. He didn't come prepared to discuss what he thinks my chances are of starting a family or nothing. My mom and I both feel as though he doesn't have the skills to handle a high risk patient like myself.

Reviewed on May 2, 2019

Dr. Chapa was able to explain options to myself and my husband in a way we understood. he asked what we wanted to do and the plan proceeded. it was a simple prenatal screening visit.
