I see some negative reviews about Dr. Chacko and i am shocked because he has been my pain management doctor for 4 years and he is wonderful. He never rushes through the appointments he listens and advises properly and shows genuine concern. I would recommend him with no hesitation.

Dr. J. Chacko is very insensitive to your pain and feelings. He does not spent time discussing test and other procedures. His diagnoses were 3 out of 4 wrong. He is only concern about money and his ego. I really don't understand how he got so many stars. He does not even deserve 1/2 of a star.

Dr Chacko, is truly the best pain management doctor . He is genuinely honest, compassionate and puts his patient needs first . Dr Chacko, Ryan (acupuncturist) and his staff truly work hard to get patient back on the feet. His smile and mannerisms are contagious. I’m truly impressed with his knowledge, expertise , honesty and willingness to help me.
