DR. Chak is a very professional & caring doc. Wonderful bedside manner. 99% on time with appts which means alot to a busy person. I actually followed Dr Chak from det to lake orion which is #53 miles round trip because he Is that good. You won't be sorry seeing him. He's my miracle doc, I'm no longer laying in bed crying he's given me my life back. There's pain docs out there dime a dozen but nothing like Dr Chak & his staff is very friendly n just awesome. See for yourself.

Dr Chak CARES! He has a great, understanding bedside manner. He truly wants to make your pain better so you can have a better quality of life. He takes as much time as you need, he never makes you feel rushed or like your problems are not as important as the next patients. I followed Dr Chak from Detroit even though it more than doubled my drive time and mileage. For me it was very worth it! He has been my pain physician for over 10 years. One final thing...He's good eye candy.

Dr. Chak is a great, thoughtful man. Finest doctor I have ever treated with in his specialty. He is honest about the long and short term effects and goals of each treatment he offers. He does offer a full service pain center as well. He encourages you to seek out lifestyle changes, PT, injections, etc. However, when all else fails he will NOT try to con you into keeping the status quo. He will work closely with your surgeon, et.al. He is not afraid to use meds to help, BUT He is no pill mill.
