I am highly disappointed with how they treated me i told thd doctor about one problem then looked at me for 5min, then when i asked him about another problem he said we should sort out the first problem first(it wasn'teven a severe problem), then he ldft the room and told us to wait there in the room and we never saw him again, about 40 min of more waiting the nurse came in and handed us some documents that sheduled an automatic revisit and she told us the Dr. had left for the day. I can guarantee that I will never go back.

So, it was first time with Dr. Chaves. As soon as I met him, I didn’t like him. I understand your busy, but there was no reason for him to act like the way he did. All he did was comeinto the room, stood by the door, ask what I needed, then left. He did ask if I had any questions. I said, “I don’t really know, it’s my first time doing this on my own. (I’m only 19.)” he didn’t even make time to learn about me or ask me any questions pertaining to my health. I understand they were busy, but still. You’re only suppose to be concerned about that patient your with. So, no, I don’t recommend him. The ladies at the front desk and the nurses were very nice.

Dr. Chaves is a very good doctor. Sweet and mild mannered. He took the time to go over all my results and was detailed and thorough. The way he presented all the results was comfortable, not threatening or careless. He made me feel comfortable and not anxious about anything.
