Excellent doctor, very approachable, good listener, easy to communicate with. Very knowelageable, explains conditions involved thourally as well as treatment options. I could not possibly ask for anything more.

Dr. Chmiel was great - the surgery (septoplasty) went well with minimal discomfort. The doctor and staff were friendly and very helpful. I'm recommending his office to friends and family.

I had sinus surgery years ago with Dr. Chmiel and he continues to see me for routine follow ups or any sinus issues I ever have. He is always polite and thorough with his exams. He takes the time to explain things with detail. The staff is great, and an all around pleasant environment.

This man was horribly rude and unhelpful. I had sinus surgery and a rhinoplasty by another doctor at the same time.He was immediately rushing me out of the door during my appts and spent literally less than 5 minutes with me. Following my surgery, I had made a second appt with him due to excessive drainage and congestion that mimicked a sinus infection. He told me that he's not a plastic surgeon and why did I see him as he viewed my sx related to the other procedure. Was rude and unhelpful
