I've seen Dr Chastain and her PA for years for various skin ailments I've had. The whole staff has always been very welcoming and take as much time as I need to explain my problem and how to follow up with care after the procedure. They explain things in terms I can understand.

I’ve been a patient of Dr Chastain and Melissa’s for many years now. I feel like I get the utmost care at the office. Scheduling or wait times have never been an issue here, and both providers have amazing and knowledgeable nurses! I always feel well taken care of when I leave her office. I’ve recommended her to many of my other family and friends and they agree completely. You will not find another dermatologist better than Dr Chastain’s office in Athens!

I have seen both Dr. Chastain and her PA for my acne. I have seen great results over the past few months, and I am finally happy with my skin! I highly recommend their office.

I am and have always loved this office. They are truly a team and the effort they give into making sure I have gotten my prescriptions and necessary treatment is beyond appreciated. I too have worked in the medical field and I realize that it takes time and effort to work with the pharmacy and insurance. I have seen both Dr. Chastain and her P.A. Melissa Cannon, and because they're so thorough and well-rounded, I haven't had to see the primary care in a couple of years.

Dr. Chastain's office is horrible about following up on your medication and that you are getting it. Dr. Chastain is also notorious for passing you off to her PA who is not good about answering your questions and tries to be in and out of your visit in less than 5 minutes. This office has poor customer service all the way around and I will be looking elsewhere for a dermatologist.

I took my daughter to see Doctor Chastain. My daughter gets extremely anxious in any medical atmosphere. Dr. Chastain loved on her and put her at ease. She was EXTREMELY thorough and solved my daughter's issue.

I met with Dr. Joy Chastain for the first time today. My wait time was so short that I didn't even have time to start reading my book! Dr. Chastain explained my skin issues to me better than any dermatologist ever has before, and I've been seeing dermatologists for the past 23+ years. Even after only one visit, I have complete trust and confidence in Dr. Chastain. The office staff were very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Chastain.
