He is an excellent doctor who was available any time night or day to answer questions or concerns. I was scared and in a daze when I walked into his office 10 years ago but his confidence, competency and compassion gave me the self assurance that I was in good hands. I'm a survivor today because of his care; I am forever grateful that I survived and was given the time to fulfill some of my dreams. Thank you.

My Dad was under the care of Dr. Chari for the last 9 years. Dr. Chari's a wonderful man who brought much needed clarity & stability into our lives when we needed it most. He explored every possible treatment option! Truly a lifesaver. When my father passed last Nov. at the age of 80, Dr. Chari traveled to Brooklyn in the cold to a small intimate memorial in the middle of rush hour. This might sound trivial, but it was a sincere, beautiful gesture from a great doctor. Highly recommended.
