Patient Comments (8)

in Orlando, FL
This is by far the most rude, arrogant, disturbing, not to mention racist physician I have ever encountered with. He will not listen, he thinks he knows it all before you even explain your symptoms. He does not look your way while evaluating you. His facial expressions are scary makes you feel you...more

Cares more about paperwork than patient care. Wouldn't even see me to discuss the issue I had.

I have been seeing Dr. Chakfe for almost a year now and absolutely trust him and his staff to manage my MS. The wait can sometimes run long, but when he gets to me he spends plenty of time with me and is very knowledgeable about my disease. I love NOT being the expert!
