What Patients are Saying About Dr. James R. Rappaport

  • “I spent 6 months in a lot of pain. SRSI provided me w amazing care and we're on top of everything in scheduling my surgery. Dr James Rappaport and Star Chenoweth PA did my surgery 4/28/2015 and I woke up pain free! They basically saved my life! I recommend them to everyone!”
    — Pamela K Davis
  • “After 5 years of getting the run around from my primary Doc's I was given a referral ( after I started falling down and complaining of sever headaches everyday) to Dr. Rappaport at SRSI. Their first step was to review my laundry list of band-aid meds, overall wellness check and an MRI... and with in weeks they called me in and reviewed everything. At this point surgery was the only viable option. They took such great care of me, from surgery to dealing with the insurance company for medical equipment. And for my level 4 surgery i only have the tiniest little scar and no headaches. I highly, highly recommend this medical facility!!! The doctors, assistants and staff go above and beyond for their patients!! AA++”
