Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Just do NOT go unless you want to feel unwelcome, be treated rude, told you are being a burden trying to work you into the schedule when HIS office made the appointment! Dr Chesnie was the rudest and berating doctor I have ever been to.

Dr. Chesnie sent my Mom into heart failure by over-ablating her heart. He's a horrible cardiologist and doesn't care about his patients at all. Stay away.

He insisted that I take a nuclear stress test without telling me that there is a non-nuclear stress test with no radiation. I told him I did not wish to get a stent, and he rudely said, "Well, why did you even come into the office?" He's rude and does unecessary tests, like DNA testing which he suggested and which I did not even need!!!
