in Roanoke VA |
Dr. Chaconas is a very capable doctor, however he at times does not seem to listen to a patient's concerns.

Office staff is so compassionate as well.

Get checked again at another doctor! I have a cousin living in Wirtz Va. He saw Dr George Chaconas 2 times about leg pain which both times Chaconas wrote it off as arthritis. Upon getting checked at another doctor he found it was not arthritis but rather something more serious. Talking to people we found Chaconas is a decent doctor with a not bad reputation however, he has diagnosed several things incorrectly in the past. Including arthritis, common STDs, pain, stomach ulcers. Etc.
