I was using a contraception that required the doctor to insert it himself. One day I decided that I no longer wanted to use this type of contraception because of the side effects: nausea, mood swings, heavy and long menstruation etc. I made an appointment with Dr. Chatman to get it removed and explained to him how much i hated the side effects and that its really impacting me and i was feeling the worst i have ever felt. Since he said the IUD was lost in my uterus and he couldn't find it, he advised that i should schedule an ultrasound immediately. The radiology department was booked but since this was urgent they squeezed me right in. Dr. Chatman advised that as soon as i finished the ultrasound I should go back to his office to show the results so he could FINALLY remove the IUD. After my ultrasound i was extremely relieved that i was getting my IUD removed and went to Dr. Chatmans office and he told me that it was too late in the day for him to try and remove it. Said that he had to go home and that he would remove it after the holidays. I asked him please multiple times and he said no. I told him that it wouldn't be him that would have to deal with the pain and side effects but he was too concerned with getting home on time. I have never stepped foot in that office again.

Wait time was long, follow up wasn't great, my birth control ended up not being covered and this wasn't explained to me clearly. I ended up waiting a month before they finally told me that; they initially said it would be about a week. Go to planned parenthood.

I think the wait time is much too long. I go to this office because it only takes me 15 minutes to get there from work and since he only has weekday appts I usually go during my lunch break. I don't mind taking an extended lunch, but usually I don't get to see the doctor for an hour and my visit takes 2 - 2 1/2 hours. I think I should be able to see the doctor within 15 minutes of my scheduled time. There is a definitely scheduling problem and the patients are booked too close together. Otherwise the doctor is great!

I'm very pleased to say that I have found my new OB-GYN! Dr. Chatman was very nice and showed genuine concern. He took his time with me and answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns. He made me feel at ease during the exam by talking me through it and also asking me questions about my job, hobbies, family, etc. He shows true compassion for people. His receptionist/assistant was also very sweet. Overall a very pleasant visit.

Dr. Chatman is very knowledgeable. I like the fact that he analyzes your symptoms to get to the root of the problem. You feel confident in his diagnosis. Also, he always make sure I am having my annual mammograph and he monitors my weight. You're in and out!

If you're looking for a timely appointment, this is not the place to go. I think I waited up to an hour and I had an early appointment. It looked like the front desk person was also the nurse and I guess that slowed everything down. The doctor really didn't seem interested in anything I said, quite dismissive. I was rather disappointed since this was a visit based on someone I actually know recommending him.

Useless. He is available all the time coz no ones goes to him. The good reviews made me book an appointment with him, but that was a terrible mistake. Him and his nurse (aka receptionist) are the only staff here and hence he answers the phone most of the time. I was billed within a week but no results/details were provided after my appointment for over a month and half despite my multiple calls. No one answered the call or return the calls. What a waste of time, energy, and money. Total disappointment.

Chatman is an older gentlemen. I never had a male do a pap smear for me but his nurse was there and he a comfortable person to be around. He has that father concern demeanor but it's not weird. He made jokes that comfort me and overall just helpful.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Chatman today. After relocating from the east coast, it was time to find a new doctor. Loved my old one and was sad to leave, but I can honestly say I feel great about my decision to come to this office. Personable & professional, and on time! If you're new to his office be sure to come in early to fill out your paperwork to prevent causing any delays in the schedule.

I have been a patient of Dr. Chatman's for many years. I like that he takes time to explain diagnoses in layman's terms. He never rushes for the door after examining you and always asks if you have any questions for him. If he thinks any follow up tests are needed, he explains why and alternatives for treatment.
