I'm so happy to have picked Dr. Chalekson. I had a wonderful experience from the first consult, through surgery, to excellent results. Dr. Chalekson is a very skilled surgeon, meticulous, detailed & professional. He made me feel comfortable & at ease by answering all my questions & concerns to obtain my goal. I felt safe under his care. I'm thrilled with my results, better than I had expected with minimal scarring. His entire staff were caring and so kind. Awesome Dr. & staff!

A great experience with Dr Chalekson and his staff. I was diagnosed for a second time with breast cancer and facing a mastectomy with reconstruction. Dr Chalekson has been wonderful through this experience. I felt from day one very confident that he would be able to perform the surgery I would need. In addition to the primary surgery, I needed a breast reduction on the other side which I just completed that portion and am very happy with my results.
Very pleasant office. All questions were answered and very happy with results

He took extra time with me explaining cosmetic injections. I knew I didn't want a frozen look and he made sure it was completely natural.

Pleasant staff but doctor is horrible! He was nice but when I was experiencing pain and discomfort I swear I would've got a better check up by my two year old grandson. Just down right bad experience! Will not ever refer him to anyone. The aftermath of my surgeries are horrible. I should be featured on an episode of BLOTCHED!
