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.

Dr Chiasson is very knowledgable, skillful and compassionate. She goes above and beyond to care for her patients. She is mine and my dad's Pulmonologist. I have referred her to anyone needing this specialty.
