Some patients might be turned off by his bedside manner but he is top notch . He is an expert in his field and does care about patient outcomes . I even had his personal cell number for emergencies which I did have to use a few times and he never made me feel uncomfortable about it . For my first baby , he spotted a rare abnormality that if went unnoticed, would have been catastrophic. For my second baby , I saw Dr . Vahanian but he was involved in my care as well towards the end of my Pregnancy because I was there three times a week . Yes he might be blunt and direct with his staff but I never minded because his job is to get at risk mothers to deliver healthy babies . I was happy to know he demanded perfection and excellence in his practice.

At 10 weeks I found out something might be wrong with my baby, and I was referred to Dr. Chavez. Upon entering the office, I was nervous, scared, miserable, heartbroken... it was terrible. While waiting for my appointment (I was pretty early due to my nerves) the doctor came out to introduce himself and then offered to see me right away. He even let both my husband and mother come into the room with me for support even though there wasn’t much space in the room. He was patient, respectful and kind and did a thorough, careful examination before telling me what was wrong. Unfortunately, the diagnosis wasn’t good, and the heartbeat stopped around 3 weeks later, but it definitely helped to have an empathetic doctor who cared. He then helped me schedule a D&E with a colleague of his, taking time out of his busy day for me. To say i am grateful to Dr. Chavez is an understatement. He’s an amazing doctor and I can’t recommend him enough for those who need to see an MFM doctor.

I work with doctors every day in the operating room as part of my job and I have never been more impressed by a doctor than I have with Dr Chavez. He was able to diagnose what was happening after hours of ultrasound and never once did we feel rushed. Took the appropriate steps in giving us clear answers with our all the BS. I appreciate a straight answer.

Upon entering the room the doctor seemed nice and caring, a little neurotic but nothing to bad. He seemed to really try and make us feel comfortable with him, however when he belittled and treated his staff like garbage in front of us we immediately lost respect for him and started to feel very uncomfortable. He then almost redeemed himself as he desperately tries to diagnose our baby’s condition. He told us he could not provide our baby’s gender over the phone or email which made it difficult

I could never understand why people are looking for a dr with good bedside manner until i had a very complicated pregnancy and i met dr Chavez... he helped us through very hard times not only with his intelligence but also with his great personality and optimism... when i first went to his office he came over to introduce himself at the waiting area! We are so grateful to have met him

Dr. Chavez took an already stressful situation of finding out that something was wrong with my baby at 12 weeks and made it all the more stressful by yelling at his staff in front of my husband and I as they were completing further testing to confirm what they saw on the sonogram. He repeatedly yelled at every staff member in the room as they were in the process of completing the CVS. I would not recommend this office to other patients.
