Dr Chagares operated on me in 2008 for the repair of a inguinal hernia. He was totally knowledgeable and comforting. He did a first class job and ive never had any more problem with this. I heartily recommend him.

I recently had a mammography and breast ultrasound. My doctor told me I needed to see a surgeon. I called Dr. Chagares’ office and they got me in right away. Dr. Chagares explained that I needed to have a biopsy and I was so scared. Luckily, my biopsy was negative and I am back to needing routine care. My experience with Dr. Chagares couldn’t have been any better. He was knowledgeable, he helped me understand everything that was going on and he made me feel at ease. The staff was so easy to deal

Dr Chagares recently performed a biopsy of something on my head and I have nothing but nice things to say about him. He is hands down the most kind and caring doctor I have ever met. He took his time and explained to me the entire procedure. Being that cancer runs in my family I was quite nervous but he answered any question I had and made me feel so comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr Chagares to anyone who ask. He is an amazing man and Doctor

The greatest personality ever! Which made me comfortable and confident from the moment I met him. Had surgery today and he's an incredible surgeon. He explains every detail of what to expect before and after the surgery and took his time making sure I was comfortable. His office staff were friendly, efficient and caring. I can't say enough about him!

I could not be happier with my experiences with Dr. Chagares and his staff. I found Dr. Chagares through various internet searches as I needed lipomas removed from my arms, legs and body. I've since had 2 procedures(they were surgeries, but they felt more like procedures) and 5 appointments and it's been so easy, convenient and pleasurable. Amazing bedside manner, extremely friendly and accommodating staff and the surgery was like a walk in the park compared to others. I'd highly recommend.
