Dr Chaffin told my 82 year old mother she had cancer when she did not, then when I challenged him on where he got his info, he dismissed her from the office she'd been going to for 17 years. She had only seen Dr. Chaffin once for less than 5 minutes, as her regular dr. had retired. He was nasty to and kicked out an elderly, disabled, recently widowed woman - who had just lost her WWII veteran husband. No one should ever go to this man. He is a pompous, arrogant man with no empathy.
