      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...

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
