FABULOUS!!! After 2 other gastroenterologist and still undiagnosed, Dr. Chasen found the answer and treated appropriately! He is both kind and compassionate, EXTREMELY knowledgeable and very thoughtful in approaching a path to wellness. He answers all questions presented (and I had/have MANY) and makes sure you understand. His staff at both the office and Sugicenter is also outstanding. Would absolutely recommend highly him!!!

Dr Chasen has treated our family for over 20years. He diagnosed my husband's colon cancer and referred him for curative surgery in 2007 and has followed up with frequent colonoscopies. He has treated me for reflux, constipation and related symptoms of ibs. He has never been too busy to see us when necessary.

Dr. Chasen listened to my complaint and then suggested a test which he did, and gave me a thorough explanation for the recommended course of treatment. He answered my questions in a manner that I could understand. I am a long term patient, and plan to continue to be so, as he knows his medical stuff and cares about his patients.

Dr. Chasen has cared for our family since 1998. He diagnosed my husband's colon cancer, removed a polyp and referred him for surgery with excellent outcome. He performs my sigmoidoscopies and colonoscopies and treatment for hemorrhoids, constipation and reflux. He promptly returns phone messages and has always been available when we needed him. He has a pleasant, soothing manner and I never feel rushed during an appointment. He listens. He and his staff are professional and attentive.

Very patriarchal in manner. Insensitive and dismissive to patient's concerns, questions, or thoughts on condition. Diagnostic process and medical conclusions based SOLELY on whatever gleaned from patient's historical records. Absolutely no exploration of other options or medications to medical conditions. 1 size fits all approach. Colonoscopy, colonoscopy, colonoscopy.
