Dr fantastic Wait time a little long Worth the wait
I was very happy to meet Dr. Chenven. He's on of the best and he was very personable and genuinely interested in my issue and to work towards a resolution. I highly recommend Dr. Chenven.
Dr Chenveb seemed to be sincerely concerned with my particular issue and was extremely thorough
One of the best diagnostician. Great staff. Arthur
The wait time was long, so patients should be prepared. A 10 minute appointment could take 90 with the wait...
I was not happy with the amount of time it took me to actually see the doctor. I was asked to arrive at 3:00 and it was 4:30 before I saw him. Other than that everything else was fine,
very thorough, took all the time we both needed. Listened, studied, did a physical exam. The problem was not identified so the dr. is requesting additional tests to get to the bottom of the problem.
not knowledgeable enough
An extremely skilled proffessional.
Dr Chenven is very thorough, spent quality time with him. It was refreshing to be with a doctor that explains everything in understanding terms
Overall good however, the woman at the reception desk was a bit rude, abrupt and complained about "first time patients never arriving early to do paperwork." She was put-out as a result; not very tolerant.
Very professional and thorough, and although very busy he was able to explain and detail everything concerning my condition.
Doctor spent most of his time entering data into a computer which was then erased. I saw him at the end of the day, and would have liked more time. I don't feel that I had a chance to tell him everything I needed to or to find out what I needed to know. I still think he is competent.
The office seems a bit hurried and on edge. It is not a relaxing environment.
most of the wait time was to fill out paperwork because i didn't do that beforehand. Otherwise the visit was fine but i'm more interested in the follow up so we can know exactly what my problem was and how we are gonna fix it.
Great doctor! I would highly recommend him.
Very down to earth!
Great doctor with excellent bedside manner! Made me feel comfortable to discuss any issue with him.
