What People Say About Dr. Charles Chaffee, MD
Reply
Dr Chaffee has been my Doctor since he started his family practice in Arlington, WA. He takes the time to sit down and talk to you about your concerns....both health and otherwise. He is the most caring Doctor I have ever had, and remembers all about you without looking at his chart. He gets 5 stars from me, and I highly recommend him! If he feels he cannot treat you for a specific problem, he will recommend someone who is highly qualified to address those needs rather than try to treat you himself. He can treat you very well for all he feels capable of, but if a specialist is needed, he will refer you to someone who he feels is well qualified. For instance, I fell and broke a bone in my foot, and he refered me to Dr Bruce in Mt Vernon. Dr Bruce is a specialist in this area, and I am happy with the treatment plan he came up with. Again I repeat, Dr Chaffee gets a 5 star rating from me, and I will continue with him as my family Doctor until he retires, lord willing. God Bless him!

The dr may be great but the new patient appt person is not. I called for an appt after my er visit for chest pain and still have not heard back. I am a senior so I would assume that my call would be returned. If your staff is not competent to do their job then that does not speak highly of the dr.
