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.
Dr. Chanales is the best physician I have ever gone to. He is the only doctor who was able to diagnose my problem. He has treated me successfully with intelligence, patience, compassion and extraordinary medical and social skills. I would recommend Dr. Chanales to anyone looking for a really good doctor.

Dr. Chanales has been my physician for many years and was my Mother's doc before me. He is an amazing person, an incredibly smart, compassionate doctor. He knows what he is doing and he helped both of us. If you want an intelligent, empathetic doc and all the time you need (he never rushes you when it is your turn), this is the doctor for you. I even ran into him in a store one weekend and he immediately remembered me and when I gave him an update he gave me further advice right there!

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.
