Cancer affects not just the patient but that patient's family. Dr. Chenal didn't listen well to our concerns about our mother whose mind was affected because of brain cancer. We had to change doctors at the end of her life, which was her choice as well as ours.

Very poor quality doctor, convinced me into hospice over 6 months ago and went out to seek a second opinion and have been getting treatment with a 180 turnaround in quality of life. Seems he didn't understand my condition and was very pushy on ending life. Kept me at a hemoglobin level of under 4 to keep me miserably alive without any personal advice of eating, activity warnings and not even any meds to remove all the liquids from infusions. Treated superbly with current doctor, stable 10+ hbc

Does not listen. Very rude in the sense of criticizing you previous physicians. Asking you questions and when you tell him what your other doctors have told you,he tells you that makes no sense. I prefer not to eat beef because it upsets my stomach -he tells me I need to eat it anyways and it shouldn't upset my stomach. He absolutely is the worse most rude Doctor I have ever seen. He tried to change the way he was treating me once he found out I was in a management position at local hospital
