Dr Chaisson is a very knowledgeable. She's a nice person in general with a good bedside manner. She always asks about how I'm doing in general and not just for the reason I'm seeing her. She always takes whatever time we need together. Sometimes there is a longer than expected wait

Dr. Chaisson is just the best. Knowledgeable, kind to a fault, realistic in her approach to care. She has cared for my sleep apnea for years and provided care for me at Griffin when I needed post surgical care. She is simply the best you can get!

Wow ! I've just begun a battle with lung cancer. Dr. Chaisson took the time to thouroughy explain my situation. Reviewed my x-ray and CAT scan with me on the computer, and discussed alternative treatment plans. She made it clear that my condition is serious, but, more than likely, not the end of the road. I left her office with a good knowledge of my situation, a map to alternative next steps, and a better feeling about my entire situation.
