Nothing but amazing things about him and his staff. It is a bit of a wait to get in to see him initially, but it is so worth it. Having been turned away by several doctors prior and told I was just depressed and making up all of my symptoms, I just happened across Dr. Chicoine's name and it has been the biggest blessing of my life. Never have I had a doctor that was so thorough and precise with his work. The operation involved removing part of my skull, but I never feared because I felt so much confidence and trust in him from the beginning. I will never forget walking out of his office for the first time and holding back tears because "he actually believes me. I'm not crazy." He checked on me multiple times throughout my hospital stay, and was always genuine and caring. He has given me my life back. And I know that makes me a little biased, but he is , hands down, the best. They are truly the most wonderful team. ??
