What People Say About Dr. Bradley Chesler, MD

Knows his specialties. Is competent and personable. Knows what will and will not work. Tries to find meds that will work to cut down pain and use less or no opioids. Keeps up on research to find medicines for chronic pain that you do not have to be backed off of to quit. Only takes patients by referral.

I have been taking my wife to Dr. Chesler for over 6 years. He has always been compassionate and thoughtful. He and his staff go above and beyond to try to help navigate the complex medical system. We recently had to change insurance carriers and Brenda in the office spent a couple weeks and many hours helping my wife get her meds pre approved with the new carrier. We could not have done it without her. She is awesome!! Between her, the doctor, the billing office, and the office manager 10 stars

Doctor has a fake bed side manner and does not actually care for his patients. He states he "will not diagnose" he pretends to care but ultimately has proven to profile his patients and does not care about his patients well being over his own. He is everything you hope to not experience in a doctor. He abuses his power of being a doctor and degrades patients and what they are going through.

He is a very good doctor, he tells you like it is, I went into his office very full. My wife and I we had to wait a little bit but we'll well worth it. He is a very busy Doctor never stops. He helped me out like no other Doctor has done before. He's number one in my book.

Everything was fine until a week ago, in my last appointment, we decided to reduce one of my pain meds to half of the dose I was taking, with the contingent that I could call in and make an other visit, to restore the dosage if it seemed like the lower dosage wasn't working. Well I called in last week and tried to do just that, after a week I received a call that the Dr. wouldn't see me until my regular appointment. So, next week I will have to work in pain, because he forgot, what he told me.

I have been seeing doctors all my life. Born with brain didorder, very qualified to rate a doctors due to experiences :) I hate going to the Doctors. But I love seeing the whole office staff. After awhile they feel like family. May sound over the top, but its true. They really ? care.

Dr. Chesler is amazing. One of the best I have used. He generally cares and takes the time to listen to you and explain everything. He is a rare commodity in the pain community.I will not rate the experience higher though. It is not because of the medical treatment, but the neglect that the office staff shows. I was put off for months after surgery because they misunderstood a referral. The phone system is horrible and always goes to a message that will hang up on you and they do not call back.
