Dr. Chesner understands the struggle, the chronic pain, and disease progression. His empathy and care for his patients is like no other I have ever seen. Whether it's happy days, sad days, grumpy days or pain days for the patient, he takes it all in stride, looking beyond all of that to SEE the patient. He goes out of his way daily to make sure his patients are comfortable, free from pain and have a great QUALITY of life.

A plus! I’ve been seeing him since I think not long after he started. He is caring, gets back to you on the same day and is a intelligent, caring man. He even knows my husband and kids names. I never feel rushed. God Bless him cause I know he is busy but always make you feel like you are his only patient. Thanks for a wonderful practice as all the Doctors are wonderful!

I appreciate how Dr. Chesner expresses interest in everything in my life. He coordinates information about how I'm feeling, my physical ability to function, and information from my lab work and office exam into a comprehensive plan of treatment. He always makes me feel like there are options and proactive steps to take toward feeling better. I especially appreciate how quickly he responds to my communications with him via the patient portal, which helps between appointments.

My wife recently suffered an extreme fybromyalgia flare. Dr. Chesner worked with her on a continuous basis to prescribe and update a medication regimen for her evolving situation. This included several phone calls after hours, on his days off, on holidays and weekends. By following his instructions, we were able to limit the potential magnitude of the flare and its fallout. His experience, council, and empathetic manner throughout this episode increased our already high regard for him.

I have been seeing Dr. Chesner for many years. I've been in pain a long time and when he felt my case was beyond what he could help me with he recommended that I see a pain specialist but he also continues to follow up with me. Dr. Chesner is a wonderful doctor and he cares about his patients. He knows when to bring in another doctor to help him with his patients. To me that says a lot when a doctor is willing to bring in another doctor to help him make his patients feel better........

I thought I filled this out 2 times now Dr. Chesner has gone above and beyond in his care for me. His expertise saved my vision from PMR and Giant Cell Arteritis. Many doctors don’t even know what it is. Long term treatment with Prednisone is the treatment that has several awful side effects. Dr. Chesner has helped me so much with them. He is so kind and caring. He understands the pain I experience. I am so blessed to have found him to get me through this awful disease. He is the BEST!!!!!

Dr David Chesner is best! When other dicrtors scratched their heads and said “Well you’re a working mother your tired”. He kept me as his patient , cared about me and continually worked to try and figure out and help me. It wasn’t till years later that the underlying problem surfaced and he was able to treat me !!! He never sent me packing. Thank you Dr Chesner ??

I HAVE BEEN USING DR. CHESNER FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS AND I JUST LOVE HIM, THERE ARE SO FEW DOCTORS OUT THERE LIKE HIM. HE TAKES THE TIME TO REALLY LISTEN AND ALWAYS IS WILLING TO TRY NEW WAYS OF HELPING YOU FEEL BETTER. HE HAS THE KINDEST WAYS ABOUT HIM AND I ALWAYS LEAVE HIS OFFICE WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE. HE ANSWERS ALL MY NOTES ON THE PATIENT PORTAL THE VERY SAME DAY I WRITE THEM AND GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO HELP. THANK GOD FOR DR. CHESNER - HE IS THE BEST; HE DESERVES 10 STARS! -

I've been seeing Dr Chesner since 2001. He gave me answers that I'd been seeking for 5 years. I had been sent back & forth to several specialists, but none could put together the puzzle pieces. Dr Chesner solved my puzzles, and keeps me moving.

My review is not based on Dr Chesner personally, as I as well as my son have been patients for 17 plus years. And yes Dr Chesner is extremely intelligent, very gifted with the latest research available. I have over the years seen his staff come and go. And unfortunately, this creates problems with the proper use of the voice message system and also more seriously a huge problem with the correct information on the office visit summary notes . So if you are not able difficult case, he 's for you.
