Great doctor. Personable, knowledgeable, and helpful -- so the whole deal. Dr. Chater Helped me out with my silly, flaky ear. I still need to get some tests finalized but I was really glad I finally saw a specialist. I would highly recommend him.
Procedure was supposed to be a "piece of cake". Procedure was attempted and failed. Dr did advise me that my throat would be sore for 2-3 weeks, never mentioned the damaged that would be done to my mouth. Dr has blamed my anatomy and the tools being used as the reasons, accepts no responsibility for his inability to perform. Two days after surgery I called his office as per hospital instructions. I only heard back from him 10 days later. On antibiotics now. Operative rpt: no oral damage.

I went to Dr Chater to see about repairing an injury to my ear that ruptured my eardrum. He explained a surgery, and had me have an audiology test done and then a CT scan to see if I qualified. I live 2 hrs away. He neglected to tell me that he doesn't DO that kind of surgery, but could refer me to Syracuse. Also forgot about all the possible awful outcomes. He makes his money on worthless visits and tests.

Didn’t prepare me for the amount of pain I would have after my surgery. Didn’t make me feel comfortable. Gave me pills to swollow after tonsil surgery and after telling him multiple times I get nauseous easily from pain meds failed to prescribe me anything to help. Then botched my surgery and I’ve been having more complications than necessary. This guy is on a power trip or just doesn’t care about his patients. Wish I would have researched better doctors before I ever went to him.
