Dr. Chasnis is always warm, friendly and on target. He's very efficient and takes the time to explain or discuss issues. He's knowledgeable and personable.

I was pleased with Dr. Chas is and his Staff. They were friendly and discussed my X-ray and MRI in detail. Dr. Chasnis sat and explained the injections and how they would or would not help with the artheritis discovered in my X-ray/MRI

Does not really accept input from other professionals ( ie PT therapists). Terrible. Arrogant.
Huntersville, NC |
I would not refer this doctor to anyone I care about. He is self centered and seems to make judgements only on what he thinks. You would think he would listen to his patient. How can you be involved in pain management and not accept input from the patient? Pain, and pain tolerance is subjective, not something you read in medical journal.

My wife and I read prior ratings just before my visit and I have to admit that I was very concerned. We anticipated the problems that others referenced, but found just the opposite. He was very attentive, explained everything and answered all of our questions. We felt very good about the visit and felt that it was time well spent.

I am a nurse. I was referred to Dr. Chasnis for a specialized injection. The day of the procedure, he and his office was not prepared. He had to draw blood. During the blood collection he pulled the needle out of my arm. Blood went everywhere! All over the floor, chair, his shoe & the wall. I had to clean my arm myself. He had no guaze to put pressure on the site. Only paper towel. He attempted to use the same needle to continue. This is when I said STOP, I left without having the procedure.

Does not treat problems outside of spine conditions. Relied on scans results that were six years and older plus a quick examination to make treatment recommendations.
