As someone who has a masters in nursing and someone who has had 22 operations in the last five years, I can attest to the fact that I have never experienced a more hands on, involved Dr in my life. Dr Chiasson seeks to not only help his patients but improve their quality of life. His compassion and considerate nature are unmatched. Though he does many bariatric surgeries, I saw him for a medical condition that few Doctors are willing to treat and he exceeded all of my expectations.

I want to Thank Dr. Chiasson for giving me a second chance in life. I would not be able to handle being over 400 lbs. I had surgery Nov.12, 2014 and currently down a total of 190 lbs. I was asked to speak at a national weight los surgery conference a couple weeks ago and never thought that i would I would stand up in front of a crown of people from across the county and talk about my success. Thank you so much again Dr. Chiasson. I am living life again to the fullest.
