    Because of family history I have quite a few colonoscopies and my experience with Dr. Charron and his staff has been the least stressful. He listened to all of my concerns and I felt I was in good hands with his staff the day of my procedure.

    Dr. Charron is a very good surgeon but he is lacking bedside manor. My discovery of illness till my surgery was only four days. He did a very good job removing my mass and resecting my bowels but I do have a hernia at the surgery sight. He did save my life and I am thankful, I just wise he was a bit nicer.

    Was able to get an appointment within three days of diagnosis. Dr. Charron is willing to listen and answer any questions. Office staff works well with scheduling appointments as I am a 3 hour drive from Richmond. Have recommended him to others.
    I would never recommend Dr. Charron. His bedside manor is horrible. I have personally seen him verbally mean nurses in the hospital. He doesn't realize how unprofessional it is when as a patient you are walking around a unit to see him yelling at one of your favorite nurses. I will say he is a talented surgeon, but his personality takes away his skills.

    I love him! He was always willing to take me even after hours or fitting me in.

    Dr. Charron is very knowledgeable and highly skilled. He takes time to explain all procedures thoroughly, including positive and negative outcomes. He treated me for rectal surgery and I had the best of results. He listened carefully to my concerns and offered very effective recommendations for relief. I can't recommend him highly enough. I have already sent a family member to see him. I was blessed to have Dr. Charron on my medical team and look forward to seeing him for ongoing care.

    Dr. Charron is probably one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He spends time with you listening and actually paying attention to what you have to say. He is thorough in his exams. The time he spends with you definitely makes up for the time you wait. I've never had a doctor that spends more than 15-20 minutes with you. I trust all the decisions he makes, for he explains everything very detailed and in an understanding way. His nurse is also very helpful and considerate. Highly recommended!

    My Son and I first Visit to Dr. Charron. He was GREAT. He really examines you for your health issue and Answered all my questions on me and my son of which I had many. Took his time ( even though he was running behind after surgery) and I never felt rushed. Great Doctor. Also; his Nurse ( Caitlin ) was Very Nice to us; helpful, friendly and courteous being the first time we meet her.
    Chester, VA |
    Let me start by saying I have no problems with Dr. Charron...however, the staff hasn't got a clue. The wrong patient's file was pulled for me., that of another person and they couldn't understand where the problem was., did you ever go by another name? There is no followup. The wait time was over one and a quarter hours. The office at Forest Avenue facility was very dated and dismal. In spite of the fact that I need surgery, I most likely will not be going to CRS.
    in Henrico, VA |
    This group practice is a disaster. It is a large group, and for whatever the reason, they can't get anything right. My experience from making an appointment to see this doctor and then to have a follow up test is the worst that I've ever had. They got everything wrong re: tests, conveying instructions for them, the results of them, making of appointments, etc., etc. I felt no sense of caring from the people who worked there. Everybody makes mistakes, but this place gets nothing right.
