Where to begin... I met Dr. Chemaly while I was in rehabilitation after recovering from a coma. He was kind, thorough and GREAT BEDSIDE MANNER. After I was released I scheduled a F2F with him to be evaluated. His office personnel, Tammy & Sage are AWESOME! The whole Dr. / Patient experience was one of professional, warmth, friendly, knowledgeable, kind, one that I will refer a friend or family member to.

I have been a long time patient of Dr, Chemaly for several years. Dr. Chemaly is compassionate and effective with his treatment and care plan for me. I would have not made it through reconstructive spine surgery without him. He is an expert in complex spine injury and disease. His office staff are excellent at their jobs, they are the best team. Dr. Chemaly cares about his patients getting the right treatment plan. As a healthcare provider, I highly recommend him to treat your condition.

Dr. Chemaly is very kind, caring and extremely helpful when it comes to helping me deal with my pain from the spinal fusion surgery. He will sit with you and explain everything, to me that's important that you aren't rushed out of the office. His office staff is very pleasant, when you walk in the office you're greeted with a big smile.

Dr. Chemaly is without a doubt the worst doctor I've ever encountered. Rude, short, aggressive. I would never ever ever ever recommend him to anyone.

Dr Chemaly was the most caring pain management doctor i have ever seen. I have had a few over the 12 years since i broke my back. His care by far was best i have experienced, I'm 28 and he made sure that i was actively working or in school as well as overall being active. He was professional and personal with me and i can honestly say every person i have met since i met Dr. Chemaly i have referred to him(if i thought they were legit in need of help). Best Dr i have ever experienced to this day.

I am searching for a pain mgmt dr in my area for chronic fibro pain. I tried to make an appt with dr chemaly - he will only see me with a referral from a dr In Wayne that he knows. My PCP is 40 min away. He will NOT accept my dr referral because he does not personally know him. This is outrageous. It is becoming impossible for patients who really need help to find a compassionate dr. Dr chemaly clearly is not one. He shouldn't turn away honest ppl who really need his help.
