WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE

Great bedside manner! Listens & asks pertinent questions re my condition.

5/28/2019
I have never had a bad experience going to this provider.

Dr Chaer took his time to thoroughly explain everything! He had diagrams that were very helpful. He was empathetic while demonstrating complete reasons for each option offered to me. While my procedure isn't that invasive he didn't rush me at all while I was asking questions. That was truly appreciated. Dr. Chaer's recommendation came from a medical colleague and was absolutely correct that he's obliviously an expert in his field and compassionate!

Dr. Chaer is wonderful!! He takes the time to explain the condition, how it's progressed, how he sees the condition going forward. His explanations are very easy to understand, and he uses the printout of the latest tests in his explanation. He is caring and always looking at the overall picture, not only my carotid blockage.

Dr. Chaer never performed an Ultrasound in his office on the day of my visit, used an old Ultrasound from March 2018, refused to view medical documentation provided from my healthcare provider and made a determination that I did have nor never had Chronic Venous Insufficiency. in addition he said I had no reflux, when I told him my doctor said that my reflux didn't show up because reflux can't be measured lying down he ignored my concerns.

My husband was the patient. This was the first time I had met the doctor. I was impressed by the doctor and all his staff. The doctor saved my husbands leg. The one thing that bothered me was when my husband was in the hospital, I felt it was very difficult to get information about my husband. I never talked to the doctors who took care of him or did his surgery. I felt this was very irritating and stressful !!!! When we came to the office for the followup, the doctor was very thoughtful and caring. I just wish I could of talked to him when my husband was in the hospital.

2/12/2019

This was my third visit with Dr. Chaer for my Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm which I have been watching for five years. Since it has been increasing in size I have decided to have surgery in the near future.
