my response to the person who said she hates Dr. Chahfe. If you are Christian, you should not hate anyone!! if you feel that way see another physicain and stop being a looser. He doesn't need your 20$.
How ethnocentric to assume I'm Christian. Whether you are correct or not, I hate people who do wrong by me or my people.

And I did go to another doctor. He did what he could to fix the damage done.

and he had his loud little daughter following him when i was there for medical appointments. how rude and irresponsible.
also insulted me for having no brothers, as he comes from a culture that highly values sons, not to be racist.
Whit, Dr. Chahfe doesn't do ear surgery, except for ear tubes.How could he have ruined your hearing?

He prescribed drops for me over and over. It was twice a day to get rid of the infection but each time it didn't get better he sent me home with more. It wore away the lining in my ear. The canal is all messed up so when it's humid out or gets wet it swells and I can't hear on that side.

Perhaps he is a brilliant surgeon as so many say, but for simple matters I no longer trust him.

To the people that complain about the wait in Dr. chahfe's office. Sometimes there is a wait, but if you have a problem, he will see you right away. He does not employ NP's or PA's, he always sees you himself. He also knows his patients, and cares about them. That is the bottom line

i was seen by Dr. chahfe in his office for sleep apnea. while sitting in the waiting room i noticed all the diplomas hanging on the walls. very impressive. i asked him about his training?/ he went to school at mcgill university in montreal, hopkins and anderson cancer center in houston. 3 great institutions in the world!!!very impressive again. i was treated with respect, love and compassion. i have stopped having my breathing problem. he is my hero!
He can be the most skilled medical professional in the entire world. What good is it if you can never get in to see him? I saw him three times. I waited an hour, an hour and 20 minutes and then an hour and 50 minutes. I learned that three others in the waiting room (that I KNOW of) had the same appointment as me. Then, his secretary looked at me like I had two heads when I said I had to leave and requested my records. I can see waiting 15-20 minutes. Even longer waits are understandable once in a while. But to have to consistently set aside two hours in order to wait for a 10-minute appointment is just ridiculous. I question the judgement of any physician who allows his practice to be run so poorly. Oh, and by the way; ALL doctors have a multitude of degrees on their walls. Kinda have to in order to be a doctor.(duh)

are you kidding wrote:
dr chahfe ???? ever see him out ? hes a maniac . rude arrogant . he over books all the time ..looks like he needs a bath and a good nites sleep ..id never go to him again ..id rather go to someone who can give you the time and attention you deserve
He is nationally known specialist in ENT Cancer surgery with impeccable credentials. He is very demanding of his nurses, and insists on changing all his own dressings, drains, etc. He is very thorough with his patients, and if they have surgery he insists that his patient have a private room to minimize the chance of infection. His office hours are tight and you might wait an hour at most. I have seen him every few months for a long time. He removed a stage three tumor from me several years ago. I have had plenty of time to learn about his reputation, and among his peers he is considered the best surgeon of his kind in the northeast. Who cares what he is like when he goes out?

Dr chaffee is a scam artist. As soon as you walk in the door he orders CT Scans or MRIS before he even looks at your or does a medical history. He is a scum bag and should have his license revoked. He told my husband that his sleep apnea could be resolved with nose surgery. It didnt work - maybe because he weighs 400 lbs. People should complain to the board of medicine about this quack. Go to hell Chaffee..

that would be 100% bullshit. Went to him, and so did my kids, not a single one of them had a CT nor an MRI. He would have no reason to order them for his line of work.

You are an ass. He could go to any large city in a heartbeat. The best sometimes don't because wages within a group are usually pooled in large city hospitals. Here he is independant, keeps what he earns and has people from far around coming to him. He is well known nationally as being one of the best. The opinions of a couple morons like you couldn't hurt him in the least.
