Poor bedside manner. He acted like we were putting him out by asking questions. My daughter has had 5 kidney stones and he told us there was no reason to take pain medication every time she had a tummy ache. Obviously, the man has never had a kidney stone!

He's excellent. I have been going to Dr. Chidester since prostate surgery 10 years ago. I'd recommend him to anyone.
