The best, most compassionate, intelligent, caring doc I have ever been to. Saved me. Follows through. Great staff, clean office. Feel confident going to him. He gives each patient all the time they need. Very thorough.

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!
Rockville, MD |
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.
Gaithersburg, MD |
Have been patient for nearly 20 years. Extremely professional and technically competent; he has earned my total trust and confidence.
in Rockville, MD |
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.
