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.
