Dr. Chahine is unlike any doctor I have seen in a long time in that he doesn't let you leave the room until you have a thorough understanding of any conditions you may have and the various options at your disposal.On my first visit he personally spent one hour with me addressing all my concerns and administering tests, whereas other doctors delegate most tasks to nurses and spend fewer than 5 minutes with their patients.
