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!
