I went to Dr. Chavis in 2015 for back pain. She looked at my MRI and explained what the test indicated. She gave me several options - medication being only one, the others were injection, physical therapy and surgery. I opted for the physical therapy and was able to wait a little over a year before now having to have surgery. Dr. Chavis and her staff are pleasant, yet professional. She asked questions for her clarification and allowed me to ask questions. I definitely would recommend her.

If you're overweight, don't go to her, it doesn't matter what your MRI shows, genetics is the reason we're overweight, she assumes you don't exercise and your diet is the reason you are having problems and you don't need surgery. Just lose 30 lbs, take glucosamine supplements and vitamins. No other recommendations. No physical therapy, no back brace support, even though I have had problems with my neck and back for 30 years, diet,exercise and supplements will relieve some of my symptoms .

Dr. Chavis was very nice to me and has a calming manner. She did a wonderful job on my surgery and I am already doing much better than I expected!
