I was very disappointed with Dr Chakilam and his office staff. I would not recommend him. This Dr did not listen to me or address my concerns. He is more concerned about getting his patients to do a sleep study. His receptionist overcharged me on my first visit. His staff is rude and if you call them with a question or concern they will not call you back. I called them 4 days in a row to request an Xray with no call back, finally the receptionist told me the DR said to go to the ER. Wow.

If you find yourself in need of a Pulmonologist, I highly recommend Dr. Chakilum. He is an overall wonderful doctor. Patient, thorough, compassionate, and best of all, explains everything to you. You do not leave his office with lingering questions. Wait time can be lengthy but that is to be expected with any type of specialist office. I am very happy with his care.
