Nightmare! Finally met him after a year of sheer pain - saw his PA only. A hip doctor took over. He does hands/shoulders - not hips/knees. Arrogant. Tired of hurting.

In March of 2005 Dr. Chalkin replaced all four knuckles in my right hand in an outpatient surgery using NeuFlex joint implants. Rheumatoid arthritis had weakened and distorted my fingers so much that they overlapped and were virtually useless for using power tools or anything requiring strength and dexterity. He was attentive and professional in every way and after 13 years I am more grateful than ever for his skill and care.

A year ago today I broke my arm on a treadmill accident. Dr Chalkin saw me the afternoon of my fall at the recommendation of Dr Smith, the emergency room doctor at St John’s Hospital in Owasso. He was compassionate and caring and truly wanted to help me. He is an excellent surgeon and after a time of healing, I have resumed exercising and have no complaints! I fell right after my 61st birthday... thank you so very much Dr Chalkin.

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 and his staff came to my aid in an emergency situation. They, I feel have worked a miracle in my life. Kind, considerate and informative were they. I feel I have received a blessing being directed to them for the pain in my hand.

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.

Dr. Chalkin utilizes concurrent documentation while the patient is in the room, thus maintaining ethical standards of patient records. My only reservation was how rushed everyone appeared (it was the end of the day), and how quickly information was given to me the patient. I would have felt a little more comfortable had I felt I had the time to ask all the questions I needed to. Overall, Dr. Chalkin was very pleasant and professional, I would recommend him to anyone.

Doctor Chalkin is good. He knows his stuff & does good work. However, he and the other doctors he works with try to cram way too many patients as into his day. He doesn't even try to listen to any of your concerns. This is obviously that they are way more concerned about money than the wellbeing of their patients. I'm not going to get into how ridiculous the staff is. In short, if you don't mind extremely long wait times and being treated like cattle, then go see Dr. Brian Chalkin.

I have more than 500 characters. He is flat up amazing! Getting in isn't easy, but he saved me. I was a swimmer who tore my labrum. He insisted to wait on surgery, do PT first where most doctors will just put you under the knife immediately. We took several MRI's. I am a tough patient due to flexible joints so the regular MRI didn't see much of a tear. The one with dye did. He was very conservative. He also has incredible respect for his patients. Swimmers need to go to him!

Avoid!! Chalkin was supposed to do a TOTAL shoulder replacement. He ignored damage to the glenoid (socket) and only replaced the ball joint. He put in TOO LARGE of a ball joint that rubbed on & destroyed the inside of my shoulder especially the glenoid. And because Chalkin used an obsolete model (even for the time period) we cannot put in a smaller ball joint (without doing a more difficult surgery involving removing the stem) because there are no replaceable parts for this model.

Dr. Chalkin is absolutely amazing, this doctor stayed after hours for us to come see him from a Broken Arrow emergency room!!!! Got him scheduled for surgery and repaired his tendons that could have other wise limited his range of motion forever. Having an efficient doc is one thing but getting the full package with great bedside manner and true compassion won this family over. Thank you Dr. Chalkin.

I am truly thankful that I landed in Dr. Chalkins care. He and his nurse are exactly what I would order in a time of needing surgery ( which to me feels like crisis ). From my experience, he is an outstanding surgeon. I had shoulder surgery, after carrying mail for 26 yrs. Post surgery has been unbelievable. I have had minimal pain, and feel pretty great! I highly rexcomend Dr. Chalkin! Plus, he is a really nice guy!

I saw Dr. Chalkin multiple times over a period of a year or two. He misdiagnosed me and almost performed surgery. He left me waiting for 1-2 hours before each appointment and when I asked him where he had been (I got the first appointment of the morning) he said he was "eating breakfast." Rude and ignorant.

I presented after being seen at urgent care facility with a broken finger. Due to the severity of the break I was referred immediatly to an orthopedic hospital in Jenks. It was at the urgency the attending physician that her primary concern was that I could lose my finger to lack of blood flow in which the tissue dies. I was then referred to Dr. Chaulkin. Upon appointing I was given a work in date which was understandable but confusing due to the urgency expressed by my previous care givers.

Office staff is very polite. Lobby, bath and office area clean. Have been 3 times and waited around 30 min. Dr.has professional and pleasing bed side manner. The time he has to spend with you varies to the extreme. Satisfied 2 out of 3 times. Third time he was running late. Did not sit w me or do exam. Feel question and concerns were unheard. A wasted trip. Both times scripts were ordered they were not called to pharmacy. Will return 1 more time.
