Dear Mark
I am a patient of Dr. Chahfe who did my septum. I am pleased with the result. Deviated septum is a clinical judgement and no doubt, like me you went to him for nasal congestion and stuffy nose. The purpose of the surgery is to relieve the symptoms, and Dr. Chahfe told me there is about 15 % problem can reoccur and further surgery may be needed. I dont think he cares about the $200.00 he may or may not get for doing the surgery.

Dr. Chahfe in my eyes is a great and honest surgeon! He helps people that have money or dont have money. He helped me with my sinus surgery and I dont have insurance. He would never do surgery to make money, especially the purpose of the follow up visit it to be sure you are doing well. That is the only reason.

Mark - you may be young, but you made an excellent decision in choosing your ENT surgeon. I speak from experience! He has really helped me, and many people I know.

In my eyes, Dr. Chahfe is the greatest, he saved my life. Mark, my advice to you is to keep him as your Dr, he will treat you as family. He does not care about money. If you have concerns, call him, he is the best! There are lots of jelous people out there, God bless him!

Please people, stay away from Aploks. If you let that hack cut any part of your body you will regret it.

I had my thyroid surgery done by Dr. Chahfe, I had an excellent experience. I came down to see him from buffalo. He was highly recommended from my family down in Utica. God bless him. He is a great surgeon.

He is a fantastic person. Too much personality for some but he does have a heart of gold. Wonderful physician also.

I went to Chaffee and he said i needed surgery, went and got a second opinion from Dr. Hodges on University hil in Syracuse and he told me no. A different medication later from Hodge and my problems pretty much went away.

Chaffee is a hack and loves to cut people open!
I was his patient since 2009 thru 2014. Had two surgery and he was recommending a third for the same issue until I decided to get a second opinion from Mount Sinai Hospital. When I requested my records for transfer of care they always had an excuse. I got a copy from the hospital and nothing he noted was discussed with me. In additional he removed my salivary gland when the real issue was venous malformation in the cheek area. Ended up paying a lot in copays and to treat the real problem. He left me with a dent under my jaw, a big scar, without one of my glands which has cause a lot of dried mouth and sore throat. He might be a good doctor but when it comes to surgery make sure you get a second opinion first.
