Dr. Chalkin was my Dr. for both my arms having Carpal Tunnel and Cubital Tunnel Surgery. I was totally satisfied with Dr. Chalkin. I followed his directions after each procedure and now after 5 years I have had absolutely no issues from these procedures. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Chalkin is an outstanding doctor. He did surgery on my son's hand and is treating me for my shoulder and hand. He has an awesome bedside manner. He is very thorough and explains everything in detail. I wouldn't let any hand surgeon touch me. Dr. Chalkin is my guy! .....Jennifer S.H.
