Cannot say enough about Dr. Chesler and his entire staff! Through and professional. This entire staff is also sincerely concerned about your health issues!

Do not go to this quack. SERIOUSLY. I have never left a review for a doctor but I wanted to warn other people that may be considering being under his care. My child was referred to him, and without even reading his file he threw away the medication he was currently on based on the fact he had never heard of it before. He likes to hear himself talk, does not allow you to explain your symptoms or case and basis his medical decisions on the years he has been in the practice. Stay far away!

He makes medical care decisions based on medical record review, without actually examining the patient or consulting with patient's other specialists. He does not answer questions honestly. He does not explain his medical care decisions. As a physician myself, in practice for over 30 years, he has to be one of the worst internists that I have ever dealt with.

Apparently, in this age of computers and legible information, he sent TWO different hand-written prescriptions that were not able to be read by the medical supply. We haven't been able to get the prescription filled.
