Dr. Chesson gained my trust and liking very quickly. He was kind and listened to me carefully. He asked questions about the things I told him. I felt he was taking me seriously, which helped me to trust him. I felt like I mattered and my health mattered to him. I found him to be a special person. I felt hope that my problems would be evaluated and taken care of. I wouldn't have any problems recommending him to family and friends at all.

in Scott, LA |
Dr. Chesson was the 3rd doctor and the only specialist that I consulted about my prolapse condition. I was relieved that he shared the same minimally invasive views and he worked with me to achieve the proper solution. His nurse, Karen, was wonderfully supportive and the office staff were friendly and accommodating. Wait times were minimal. Very grateful there are doctors like Dr. Chesson.

No wait. Great support staff friendly and knowledgeable. Meeting with Doc starts in office for history and creates a nice rapport. The examination is quick no ones favorite part but necessary and in this case not too long or drawn out. Dr Chesson is clearly very knowledgeable and many years experience in case he was able to quickly determine the issue and focus on the resolution. Very good experience overall would recommend to my family and friends.

I visited Dr Chesson's office on recommendation by my urologist. I needed surgery to repair my bladder, and a hysterectomy . Excellent service, very knowledgeable, and always there when u need a question answered. I left messages that were returned in a very timely matter. Received excellent care from his staff. They were very concerned about my well being. I would definitely recommend his office, Dr Chesson is very knowledgeable and wants to help you to have a better life.
Lafayette, LA |
I found both Dr. Chesson and his staff to be friendly, reassuring, very competent (nurses were excellent) - other options were offered me in relation to the medical problem I had but after several months surgery became my choice and was necessary. Through the whole time before surgery I was reassured and entered into that experience not anxious at all. I would recommend Dr. Chesson highly.
