    Dr. Chaekal has been helping me deal with beating cancer and receiving treatments and I feel very comfortable that she is doing an excellent job. She is caring, patient and explains everything. The entire staff is helpful and courteous. Only problem is the wait time but I cannot really complain about this because she does what very few doctors do...she spends time with her patients!
