Verified Patient Reviews
He was very proactive and provided great feedback on past treatments with other providers and possible next steps.
Easy to deal with doctor, attentive and efficient.
Dr.Chacko and all the employees were pleasant and professional. I was very comfortable with the people and the service.
Exam was kind of quick, perhaps not that thorough. He doesn't do the acupuncture, another licensed acupuncturist in the office does it. The office was not that clean, which put me off a bit.
I am thrilled to have found this medical professional so close to my home! He actually LISTENED to me and to my concerns. I was especially impressed with his knowledge of pain management. He was not one of those doctors that try to push pain meds without even exploring other options. I am also very appreciative of the front desk staff! They were so friendly and compassionate! They answered all of my questions and are very competent with managing the office schedule. I think I waited 2 minutes before being called into the office!
The recpsonists were extremely polite and the wait was within acceptable timing. Dr. Chacko was attentive to my problems. I will be returning in the future.
Dr. Jeffrey and staff were very funny and thorough, enjoyed my visit and will return.
Dr. Jeffrey Chacko, MD. In my opinion is a real professional whose able to get to the root of a problem quickly.
Very informative answered all and any question had pertains to my reason of visit along with giving detail history of his experience . What like most was when I request to see area of where injections are performed ; the machine that allows them to see how accurately where the injections is being inserted , showed it to me without hesitation . All areas clean on Both of my visits . Most importantly all his licensed certifications were displaced to the patient reach to see up front in person on the wall . Everything I asked pertaining my treatment whether it was a pro or con was answered directly .
awful service the receptionist is awful
Excellent. Short wait. Doctor C is very knowledgeable.
Professional and curtious. Polite reception.
Unsure this first visit. Didn't do much for the pain. A second visit reschedule for pain medicine.
My visit went very well. Dr Chacko is a very knowledgeable and kind Doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a good pain Doctor.
I was immediatedly greeted at my car within their parking lot with a wheel chair. I was immediately seen after my paperwork was in order. Dr. Chacko's staff is very friendly and accomodating. Dr. Chacko treated me with respect, and compassion. Very professional. I highly recommed him.
Very helpful, professional.
Great doctor, very accomodating and great bedside manner
I have been attending Dr. Chacko's office ever since the car accident I recently got into in 2016 and I am so greatly appreciated to have gone to him for my back pain! Dr. Chacko is marvelous . He really cares and makes time to really understand and listen to what your concerns are, and where your pain is really located. He does not only welcome you, but he also treats you with ALL the possible ways that can make your pain go away and of course, make you feel better. I still attend his office today for physical therapy, and nothing has changed. Dr. Chacko is always there and the staff are very friendly! Bonus for the wait time because you dont wait for too long to go. I recommand and good luck! :)
The doctor was amazing but the wait time was a bit long
It was a great visit ,he give me hope with my dads heath i really like the way he explained it looks like he cares about his patient.
It seemed like their office is in it for the money because they wanted to book separate appointments for each test they wanted to give me. Not only do I not have the time, but that's a separate expense each visit. I was not happy. As for the quality of the doctor, I have no opinion because I did not get much time with him.
He's not a very friendly doctor, at least to me. He doesn't seem to like being asked questions. He's definitely not informative. And his office is not honest about what they're doing, and that's all I'll say. Even after expressing my issues, they never attempted to resolve it. I'm not bitter there are plenty of doctors to choose from out there. But it's a warning for potential patients.
Excellent highly recommend
I highly recommend Dr. Chacko, excellent manners, and knowledge.
Absolutely phenomenal. Professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I'm not sure I've ever had a better experience with a doctor.
He is a great doctor but he only give injection and I need pain medication and injection so he told me to look up both
Que fue muy buena y el doctor muy amable
Setting my appt. through Zocdoc was simple, easy and for the same day. The office was clean. Staff was extremely helpful and everything was quick. Dr. Check has great bedside manner and addressed my problems and explained what was going on. Highly recommended.
Excellent visit *****
The office staff and the Dr were great. The office itself needs a little renovation.
I think this doctor is good for people who have a sports injury or localized pain but I have fibromyalgia and not only did he question it, which 3 other doctors have diagnosed, but he prescribed muscle relaxers which have nothing to do with nerve pain. I'm sure he is a good doctor for some people but go elsewhere for fibromyalgia pain.
Dr. Chacko treatment was excellent! after a series of injections my lower back pain was reduced considerable or almost disappeared! I can walk much better now! I am so grateful with Dr Chacko and his great staff! Highly recommended!
Really cool guy
Direct to the point, came up with what seems to be a good treatment plan.
It's a pleasure to visit Dr Chacko. Very professional office
I can say for the first visit it was a little wait just to be seen quickly
Very nice guy
Nice office, great staff and great doctor. Dr. Chacko listened attentively and quickly developed a plan of action. Would definitely recommend.
Great doctor ! And the staff was very nice.
