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.

May 09, 2018

DR. CHAER IS AN EXCELLENT VASCULAR DOCTOR. HE FIXED AN AAA FOR ME A FEW YEARS AGO WITH NO PROBLEMS, WHATSOEVER. SINCE THEN HE HAS FOLLOWED UP ON MY AAA EVERY 6 MONTHS. I HAVE TOTAL CONFIDENCE IN HIS ABILITY AS A SURGEON.
