I was able to meet with the dr. on very short notice. He expedited my problem with an endoscopy center. Highly recomended.
Courteous office staff and I was seen right away. This was my first time seeing a specialist of this type and I was nervous and a little embarrassed, but Dr. Chessin immediately put me at ease with his good nature and bedside manner. He thoroughly explained my condition and was honest about my options and his recommendation. For me, he suggested a conservative approach and I never felt he was aggressive with pushing more aggressive treatment before I was ready. He helped me come up with a care plan going forward and I will see him in the future for an additional procedure when it's the right time. Highly recommend. Never thought a visit like this could be as pleasant as it was!
I did quite a bit of internet research before I chose to see Dr Chessin last July, and I know that I made the right choice. I've seen him maybe 6 times since then and he is always the best. He is super reassuring and positive, knowledgeable and confident. He tends to run on time but will always take the time to answer any questions you have. Absolutely the best!
