We’d like to give a huge congratulations to Dr. Chapman, who was ranked among Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors and was included in Atlanta’s Top Doctors in Atlanta magazine’s July issue. Atlanta magazine uses a database of top doctors compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., an established healthcare research company based in New York, to assist in its annual effort. This year, the publication honors 860 physicians. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process open to licensed physicians in Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, and Rockdale counties. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers then select the Top Doctors through a rigorous screening process that includes an evaluation of educational and professional experience. 

Dr. Chapman also serves as the President of the Medical Association of Georgia Foundation (MAG Foundation), a non-profit group which enables physicians to support medical science and public health projects that enhance the quality of life in the state.
