My family had a terrible experience with Dr Chevalier. She has what i feel is a very questionable relationship with Artis Senior Living of Reading which directly leads to patient and hospice referrals for her. She has a bizarre demeanor, giggling her way through discussing life and death issues. She will blindly defend Artis and blame any issues on the progression of Alzheimer’s or Dementia. This is definitely not someone you want to rely on for your loved one’s care. I regret ever having my mother under her “care. Her staff is rude and at a time when we needed empathy and quality care the most, she did not deliver. Try Dr Mark Messenger instead, his practice was an incredible switch for us and a massive improvement in care for my mother.

Dr Chevalier is the most caring and understanding doctor. She cared for my mother the last year of her life and was the only doctor that understood dementia. She also took the time to talk and not rush you off the phone in the middle of a conversation. After my mother passed she took the time to call ( not her staff her) and send her condolences . Dr Chevalier is a doctor and true to her profession. If I can say one thing about her is every doctor should be as caring knowledgeable and understand

I care for a 94 YR old woman and Dr. Chevalier is her physician. She is TOP NOTCH, she is the most caring, thoughtful and genuine doctor I have ever met. I personally think that Kelly and David are the BEST. They are so caring and Kelly has such a great fun personality and a joy to talk with on phone. I think all nurses should sit with Kelly and David and observe their professionalism and kindness and true caring. They also have it when it comes to scheduling, PERFECT!!!!! TOTAL TRUST!!

followup from my Mother's recent hospitalization. Kelly answered. Asked about my Mother's malnutrition/weight monitoring going forward at assisted living was told "what do you want us to do about it?". Said "Dr. Chevalier spoke to your sister & she agreed if your mother has flu again not to send her to hospital for treatment. she's 94". I'm legal HCP. I make the decisions. Not treat for a flu? Paged nurse Sarah & she was very good & proactive. Kelly should be fired. My brother is appalled
