Save your self and go to another Dr. Dr Chavez basically caused my mother to go from stage 2 to stage 4. Horrible mismanagement of her cancer. He is never available and is gone doing research for drug companies. His ARNP does everything. They don't even respond to email sent and the labs are never updated in the online system. Once her cancer went to stage we didn't even get any medication for pain. No references to hospice. It was well your dying goodbye and then gave himself credit.

Dr Chaves saved my life. When a staff doctor at St Joseph hospital gave me a diagnosis of terminal pancreatic cancer with no treatment., Dr Chaves got a referral from a nurse, he came and saw me. He said something is wrong and ran additional tests. 2 1/2 years later I am cancer free and Dr Chaves gives me inspiration on every visit. Now I am enjoying my 5 year old granddaughter. Thank you Dr Chaves. You are the best!
