Knoxville, TN |
I have been treated by Dr. Chavin for pain related to conditions of my lumbar spine since March, 2017, and have received excellent care. The nurses are friendly and avail. to answer questions, which was reassuring. I've read reviews which describe Dr. Chavin as "rude and hateful", however, I think his sometimes abrasive manner is his way of separating those who only want pain med. from those who want to cooperate with his recommendations and rules. Expect close monitoring and compassionate care.

Dr. Chavin spent more time with me than any other doctor. His diagnosis was accurate and his care was very helpful. My life is better and I am on less medication. Very good if in serious pain.

Dr Chavn has known me for several years. he is taking good care of me and other family members. He is knowledgeable and competent and he has done injections which have been helpful. he did the most thorough workup of any doctor I've ever been to. This has included labs, MRI and CT scans, dexa scans. he made diagnosis that no one else able to figure out and sent me to appropriate specialist that he works with. I would recommend him.

I recently moved to the area and have received excellent. In Illinois I went to a pill mill. Dr. Chavins office is any but a pill mill. Detailed care and complete workups were done. The injections were very helpful. I have referred my spouse for care. Very satisfied.

Excellent care. Very thorough doctor. Dr. Chavin was very detail oriented. I was impressed with detailed workup. I am now on less pain meds and have increased activity. Dr. Chavin did an integrated evaluation and the quality of my life is much better. Dr. Chavin did a comprehensive workup and diagnosed thyroid disease and osteoporosis. My primary care physician missed these and my wife and myself appreciate very much that Dr. Chavin diagnosed these.

Dr. Chavin really help me with my pain. He spent more time than any of the other clinics and his work up prove to be very beneficial. The best pain management doctor in Knoxville. he's very tough with his patients especially those that sell and abuse their meds. However if you use your meds correctly he treats you right and has a lot to offer. He is the real thing.
