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.

this is the most wonderful physician I've ever had, he is so interested in my health and listens to me, even when he has more important things things to take care of.

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.
