Dr. Chase and the team at VIO was very polite, professional and was able to fix a problem that I’ve had with my back for years… The St. Thomas office is clean and I barely had to wait to get in! They also helped me figure out my insurance and made sure that I was covered, thanks!!

Amani J.

I was in pain hurting and not feeling well.  I didn’t know where to go or how to regain flexibility. I had trouble standing up and sitting.  Dr. Chase is a miracle worker, he was able to quickly figure out what I needed to do to recover and now I have mobility and freedom again.

Beni P.

I was on a cruise ship and hurt myself while on St. Croix.  Dr. Chase was able to operate immediately and make sure that I was ok.  The island is blessed to have such talented service!
