What People Say About Dr. Chad Best, MD

I have been taking my son to see Dr. Best for the last 7 years, Prior to seeing Dr. Best, I had taken my son to a number of doctors that couldn't figure out his issue. It was doctor Best who figured out that he had UC and help him to function like a normal child again. Now I have a thriving 17 year old and my only worry is what I will do when he becomes an adult and can't see Dr. Best anymore. I rec Dr. Best for any children who have digestive issues!

My son was very nervous to see yet another doctor--I had to practically drag him out of the car!! The first thing Dr. Best did was get down to my son's level and put him at ease before even talking about why we were there. What a nice touch! He spent the time needed to explain my child's problem--constipation and how were going to fix it. I think my child is actually excited to back for visits--a first time for doctors!

My child has a number of conditions that requires him to see a number of specialists. Dr. Best is by far my favorite as he spends the time to answer all of my questions and to interact with my son beyond simply examining him. It is nice to have a physician who does not seem hurried and so humble.

I had a very poor experience with Dr. Best when taking my infant to him for GI issues. I found him to not listen, not ask appropriate questions, not seem to be concerned about my concerns, and give advice that was not in my child's best interest (which he would have known if he had asked any questions, really).
