Dr. Chakilam is very nice and seems to know what he is doing. I feel completely secure in his knowledge and expertise. His staff is another story completely. They are rude and are not very compassionate. Recently I called in with concerns about my condition. Was told wait until the next day for my scheduled appointment or go to the ER. The staff was not concerned about me as a patient. Very frustrating. When I did arrive for my scheduled appointment, the staff did not have blood work result ready for the dr. Poor way to run a practice.

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.
