Anybody looking for a Dr. would be so lucky to have Dr Chester for their doctor. He is very intelligent and caring. A person would never know he had other patients waiting to see him. He never rushes the appointment. I just can't say enough good things about him. My family and I were so sad when he left Brandon. I wish him all the best in his endevours.

Dr. Chester was most helpful during my son's recent visit. We had a fair amount of paperwork to complete, a burden in healthcare these days. Dr. Chester was very gracious. In addition, we discussed a number of care items and determine what we all felt were appropriate next steps. Great experience.
