Patient Comments (17)

Both my husband and I r patients of Dr Chitayat. On my first visit to Dr Chitayat, I was very nervous. Dr went out of his way to explain my condition in a very comforting manor, he spoke to me and not at me. I left feeling very comfortable with my prognosis and recovery plan.
