How likely are you to recommend Dr. Chesler?

(Select your rating)
Dr Chesler is an amazing surgeon. He recently performed surgery on my son, and I was impressed with his breath of knowledge and professionalism. He is a straight shooter, right to the point , and a "just the facts sir" kind of doctor, but I think that is what makes him so good. He makes things happen in the hospital too. We are so glad we were able to work with him.
