Dr Chisholm is very personable and listens to what I am saying. He is compassionate in his care and genuinely cares about his patients. When he is doing a procedure with me, he is quite attentive to how I am doing and how I am tolerating it. I recommend Dr. Chisholm without reservation.

i never got a call cancelling my appointment. i have delayed getting a shot since i was supposed to be scheduled for a spinal cord implant. i never received any calls scheduling the implant since May 2019. It is now August. i have been in pain for a month now waiting for a call. today i came for my injection and they said the appt. was cancelled. Not with me. I like Dr.. Chisolm a lot. but this is all frustrating.

He will tell you anything you want to hear and then not follow thru anything he has told you he would do for you, Very unprofessional, I gave him a one star only because they didn't have anything lower

Dr Chisholm is a very fine personable physican. I have had the privilege of being treated for a condition that was absolutely debilitating. He performed a cervical epidural yesterday, and I gat almost immediate relief! I was in severe pain when I went in and Dr Chisholm and his fine staff were patient and efficient in delivering this procedure. I, as a doctor myself, would recommend this fine doctor to anyone needing a procedure to treat their pain.

I had excellent results in dealing with pain from feraminal stenosis. It was nearly debilitating. I received a cervical epidural from Dr. Chisholm, and in the morning I was a new man. I was pain free until had surgery two months later. Removed a star because his office manager and staff are very difficult to deal with. Won't return calls, mis-schedule appointments, etc. If you can get past that disaster, the doctor is great.

The office staff NEVER returns calls or emails even when urgent. They do not care that you are in pain. Chislom is a good doctor but his staff sucks, and it has for years. This gives patients the impression that the doctor really does not care for his patients. I will never recommend Dr. Chisolm and will never go back to him because of his staff and his personal management of his staff and office.

Terribly run office. Hard to get in to see and certainly put trips, scheduling,etc. ahead of taking care of my pain. Call a lot because they'll never call you back or inform you of anything. VERY challenged front office. Go somewhere else if you can!
