My son is very shy around new people and it's hard to get him to talk about whats going on with his ears. Dr. Chafin has been amazing at getting him to open up. So very thankful to have him as my sons doctor.

We started taking our son to Chafin 5 years ago and wish we would have taken him there sooner. Our now 17 year old son has been plagued with severe ear infections throughout his life. We have seen countless pediatrics doctors, PA's and more than our share of urgent care facilities. Since Dr. Chafin has taken our son as a patient, we have finally gotten answers and full treatment plan - not just antibiotic and ear drop band-aids. Dr. Chafin's professionalism and compassion are amazing.
