What People Say About Dr. David Chesler, MD
Reply
I brought my husband to the ER on Sunday, because the headaches he was having for about 6 weeks worsened in the days after having an ablation for AFIB. A CAT scan determined that he had a large mass on the frontal lobe of his brain. Dr. Chesler performed a craniotomy 3 days later to remove it, and my husband was home and doing amazingly by the weekend. Dr. Chesler is a wonderful surgeon, who is also caring and compassionate. His staff of PAs and NPs are top notch, too!

Dr. Chesler went out of his way before my appointment to get a second opinion from John Hopkins. He explained everything so my daughter would understand. He follows up and calls you back immediately. Pearl is great with getting you in for appointments.
