I have been with Dr Chesler for years, I've never been better treated by the whole office.
Escondido, CA |
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.
