Yes I just was at a Doctors office and I was told after my Surgery, that I needed a six month follow up, and that this was complimentary as a check up! 6 months later I go to Aiken Center for Dermatology , The doc looks at me , 7 min or less in office, Then Im hit with a 65.00 bill upon leaving. I asked about the checkup , the lady at the billing desk says, It is and doesn't charge me. A week later a bill comes in the mail for $65.00, I called and the lady that answers says No your charged.

As a fellow physician, I found Dr. Chesser professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable. He would be someone I send patients to, and obviously someone I trust with my personal health.

I came to Chesser with facial problems. I have a very sensitive face that gets intensely red and I thought he'd know of a solution, but the products he gave me weren't even for my face. He gave me Fluconazole for vaginal yeast infection(I'm a guy) and he gave me a hand cream for dry skin. He shrugged his shoulders as he gave me the hand cream and said I don't see why this shouldn't work. That gave me great confidence that I was getting the best care. My face is 100x worse since seeing him.
