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!
