Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was not on his operating table, but I was introduced to him in case I was to be approved of surgery. The man has amazing credentials and in person is a very good heart with excellent knowledge on tumor adenomas. Although he asked me what made me think I had the condition I had eventually been diagnosed with, and was told straight up my symptoms I had frantically blurted like a lost sheep through anxiety were not that of Prolactinoma, he was very very balanced in his approach to make sure I wasn’t someone just trying to jump away from medication, and was very strong to emphasize the risk that comes with neurosurgery. He cares a lot of whoever becomes his clients, and I found that to be highly respectable.

Dr Chamoun operated on our 74 year old mother and we were so nervous but she was in the hands of a very skilled neurosurgeon. Dr Chamoun did a fabulous job and we are so blessed to have her surgery done by Dr Chamoun and the staff at University of Kansas Medical Center.

Dr. Chamoun has operated on my husband twice in the last 3 years removing a recurring pituitary adenoma. He is very thorough and attentive with his patients. His staff is excellent too in assisting with scheduling and follow-up questions. We are very grateful to Dr. Chamoun for the care he has provided my husband and are confident in his abilities as he continues to monitor my husband's condition going forward.

Dr. Chamoun did what he said he would do. He removed the brain tumor and that has provided a good prognosis. He was attentive to our needs and listened to our concerns.

great surgeon. I was told by other neurosurgeons that my tumor cannot be removed, they referred me to radiation. I got a second opinion from Dr Chamoun. He removed the tumor with no problems. I am so grateful.

I went in with a condition known as Chiari. Dr. Chamoun and his staff did an amazing job with my surgery. I am now symptom free, and cannot remember the last time I made it through a week without a headache. He has made this a reality for me. Highly recommended to everyone I know!
