Good experience. viewing the number of people in the building you would expect some confusion but my day went on time in a professional manner. The doctor never talked down to my wife or me and listened to what I had to offer.

Dr. Chaisson was exceptional. He asked me questions no one had ever asked. He seemed to be thinking all the while asking questions. I'm grateful I found him. I'm so hopeful he will be able to figure this out. I had doctors in LA and Youngstown that have been treating this condition for over 18 months with no significant results. Dr. Chaisson and staff were so courteous and kind and extremely professional and knowledgeable. I feel blessed to have found him.
