Dr Chalal repaired my torn rotator cuff several years ago. I was able to return to playing four wall handball in no time and continue to do so today. Dr Chalal is very professional, patient, knowledgeable, friendly and is always available to answer questions. My wife also had her shoulder repaired by Dr Chalal and enjoys full range of motion.

I have been going to Dr.Chalal for many years. I have followed him to every location he has moved (at least three). On my visit yesterday I felt that he was a bit rushed and could have been a bit more sensitive to my pain. However the office follow up with Liz was wonderful.

Dr. Chalal is extremely unprofessional and negligent with his patients. Dispite his terrible reviews, I went to him because I hand no choice. Work Comp. sent there. From the start it was clear he didn't care about my well being. He played down my injuries and denied me treatment. In the end he told me to go back to work even though my injuries haven't heald. He even refused to prescribe me an anti inflammatory cream for pain to so insurance didn't have to pay for it. Shame on you Dr. Chalal

I would highly recommend Dr Chalal (and I already have). He took the time to actually listen to me. I felt I was valued as a patient instead of being just another number. So happy to find him and his staff.

Dr. Chalal is a professional in the truest sense of the word. His diagnostic skills are superb and he takes the time to thoroughly explain his findings. He has my full faith and trust. Doctor Chalal does not rush his patients. He understands apprehension and any possible fear. I wholeheartedly recommend this skilled practitioner. Dr. Joseph Chalal is what a physician should be - - he took his oath and honors it.

Dr. Chalal was very attentive to my situation as I did not have full extension of my left leg after having ACL reconstructive surgery a year ago by a surgeon in Broward County. He was completely straight forward with me letting me know that if I didn't get full extension, it would continue to hinder my workouts and further injure my hips. Dr. Chalal showed me daily exercises I needed to implement over the next 6 months to correct. It's been two weeks and I already feel a difference!

Dr. Chalal performed three different surgeries on me. He did so only after exploring all non-surgical alternatives to relieve my discomforts. He is a physician who is dedicated to his patients and his profession. If you are in need of an orthopedic physician, I recommend Dr. Chalal.

My active family has had both knee and shoulder injuries. For over 20 years Dr. Chalal has been our choice. Both he and his staff are wonderful. The office is very well run and offers physical therapy in house which helps tremendously after surgery. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Chalal and his team.

Dr Chalal has always brought me in the day I have called and on emergencies on December 26th 6:00am in the morning. Told me to go to the emergency right away because of a possibility of blood cloth. Due to a car accident on December 22nd he has helped me get the care i need. He is still working with me to find the right care on my calf and hand. He always listens and gives you answers. What more can you ask a wonderful Dr., and have recommend him to alot of my tennis players.
