I am alive today due to treatment and procedures I have received from Dr. Chalfin over the years. Shocked and saddened to hear of his impending retirement. He deserves the retirement but I also will miss his caring and treatment I have received over the years. Thank you for everything Dr Chalfin. You will be sorely missed.

Dr. Chalfin is one of the kindest, most thorough doctors practicing medicine. He identified and corrected a rare bladder birth defect that another urologist wrongfully wrote off as "nothing." He listened intently to my questions and concerns. Every visit he asks me how I'm doing-- sadly such a rare thing to be asked in a doctor's office anymore. His office staff are wonderful as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Chalfin to anyone I know who needs urological care.

Dr. Chalfin is a good doctor and is thorough but his nurse and receptionist need to go to school for empathy and manners . They are very rude and do not know what the words kind and patience mean . When you are dealing with sick people or people that just found out they have cancer or their loved one is sick and trying to see the doctor , they really need to have patience and understanding and definitely empathy!! They have none of that! I feel sad when I hear them talk to patients the way .

I continue to visit Dr. Chalfin on a cash basis since he does not use medi-cal patients why? Because I trust him he is the finest urologist I know. Doctor Chalfin is always busy that says a lot in my eyes. He came to me very highly recommended by my girl friend and her mother back in 2006. I have been with him ever since. He and his staff are the best at what they do I can think of 2 occasions when I had to get in to see him in a hurry his staff managed to squeeze me in for an appointment...
