Patient Comments (2)
in Aiken, SC |
I have been a patient of Dr. Chesser for approximately six years and during that time I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable friendly.
Aiken, SC |
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.
