Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Chanales is one of the smartest, most caring doctors I have ever seen. He is one of a kind. He is empathetic, spends as much time with you as you need, follows up and certainly made the correct diagnosis for me (when others could not) and I am living life again. Thank you, Dr. Chanales

I want to believe and like Dr. Chanales. I want to think that he has my best interest at heart but sometimes he can be negative when he speaks. I have an issue breathing that is scary enough, please show some compassion and less sarcasm!

Awful. Made snide comments about my father while he was in a comma. My father ended up passing away a few months later. No thanks to him.

Have been patient for nearly 20 years. Extremely professional and technically competent; he has earned my total trust and confidence.

The doctor kept picking up phone calls from his personal cellphone during the appointment. He seemed generally nice, but also a bit condescending. Wanted to like him, but hard to do that when he seemed a bit rude to the patient.
