Dr. Chahfe is an excellent physician and compassionate human being. What an exceptional combination i.e. to have an experienced and knowledgeable physician who is also kind and sensitive. This is answered prayer at a time when most physician’s dislike patient’s who ask questions. Not Dr. Chahfe, he cares about all his patients and welcomes all concerns and questions. He won’t blacklist you if you have sincere questions. We in turn appreciate him.

I was sick for months when my doctor finally referred me to Dr. Chahfe. He was the turning point for me. He referred me to other specialists in their fields since my PCP was unwilling. Through them I was diagnosed and treated. Dr Chahfe ran point in collecting all of the follow up information. He is no-nonsense, thorough, and extremely knowledgeable. I live an hour away but he is well known and respected by people in my area. His staff always answers the phone when you call. I have never waited more than 15 minutes past my appointment time - in fact usually much less. He gets to the bottom of things and doesn't leave a stone unturned. I know I am in good hands with Dr. Chahfe.

I personally have had a surgery with Dr Chahfe many years ago, my husband and my son have had surgeries multiple times with him. Great bedside manner, very skilled, yes he does have a lot of patients and I personally do not mind waiting for him. I wouldn’t dream of going to anyone else. I’ve been a patient for 25 years.

Dr Chahfe removed a 4cm mass from my teen's carotid artery. As you can imagine, this was very frightening. The scar is barely visible 1 year later. We are so grateful, Dr. Chahfe saved our son's life.

Dr.Chahfe is an amazing, caring physician. He has done a septoplasty on me and a tonsillectomy as well as some cauterizations due to an outstanding issue. He was always very fast getting me an appointment, and it an extremely thorough doctor. I will never see another ENT.

Dr. Chahfe is brilliant and compassionate. He actually listens to the patient and is very thorough. He saved my life after I was pushed away by many other doctors. When I was told there is nothing to worry about, he found my cancer and performed an extensive surgery without any complications. It has been one year since my surgery and I am cancer free!!!!

He'a quack. He "fixed" my broken jaw and my teeth wouldn't come together. He said it would be a simple procedure, just had to put a screw in on the broken side to keep it aligned. Within 6 weeks I had to go to a specialist the screw Chafee installed couldn't be removed and he had to re-break my jaw on both sides to repair Chafee's mistake. My bite still isn't correct and there is nothing I can do

Doctor Chahfe is the best. I've been going to him since he first came here from Canada. He is such a caring Doctor takes the time to listen and explain things to you. Ask about your family is and life treating you I can't say enough good about him. I had to see him again today and he makes my day. His staff are also great and treat you nice. I wish there were more Doctors like him he really cares about everyone he sees. As far as the wait time no complaints from me he makes sure your wants and needs are taken care of and all questions answered not rushed out the door. I recommend him to everyone. Thank you Doctor Chahfe for all you do for us. Barb Kinney:)

My husband has multiple health issues. He was diagnosed with parotid gland cancer by Dr Chahfe. Other doctors thought my husband had a swollen lymph node. Dr Chahfe removed gland and lymph node. My husband has low platelets and CLL, so having surgery is higher risk. Surgery and recovery went well. Dr Chahfe is straight forward with all information he tells you. You see him at every visit and he answers your questions and makes sure his office personnel knows what you need to schedule before you leave. The office personnel are professional and pleasant. They know their jobs and do them well.

My daughter was severely congested to the point where she couldn’t breathe. After 5 months of looking for an answer and getting nowhere, we saw Dr. Chahfe. We are extremely happy with the results, my daughter is finally better and breathing again, and she LOVES him! He had wonderful bedside manner and is amazing with children. Only negative is the amount of time we spend in the waiting room.

I've been there 3 times for a sinus infection. Each visit I've had progressively longer waits in the waiting room. My appt today was at 9:30 am, I didn't get seated in the exam room until 10:43. After 10 mins waiting there Dr,Chahfe popped in for 2 minutes, asked if it's better or worse, and said we will re-evaluate in 8 weeks and left. I waited over an hour for literally 2 mins of his time. I counted 33 people in the waiting room. Once inside the exam rooms he juggles 4 patients at same time

We love Dr. Chahfe! He has been seeing different children in my family for the last 10 years. We have a long history of ear infections, trouble hearing and mild speech delays. Dr. Chahfe did not waste any time with treating my children. With tubes being placed and speech referrals when needed and follow up care he has been very thorough and made sure our children got what they needed.
