in Marietta, GA |
The initial staff and PA were great. Unfortunately I first met Dr. Chastain moments before I was to have a surgical procedure. I always meet with my surgeons prior to having any surgical procedures to understand the procedure, outcomes and what to expect but not here. Dr. Chastain does not like to be questioned. My insurance and I pay very good money for professional services but Dr. Chastain has the disposition that he wants to get through with you and move on the next procedure.
