I talk to everyone who will listen about how exceptional Dr. Neal Chaisson is. As an example, when I go sick in California during a vacation, he was right there to guide and advise me. I went to the hospital ER as he advised, they ran a scan and found my cancer in my lung was back. When it was time to fly home, I flew into cleveland and had an appt. at 7:30 am to see Dr. Chaisson. He always goes above and beyond. He's an exceptional physician but, he cares deeply for his patients. It's rare to have a doctors so real and talented.
