"What an amazing experience! The results were amazing on top loving to visit their office and staff. I highly recommend them to all my friends and family."
"Very thorough exam. Made every effort to get to the heart of the problem I'm having and to best treat it. I appreciate your role in my care. I highly recommend this doctor."
"I am a medical professional and am "in the know" about who are the best doctors to see for my own medical conditions. I have found Dr Chakerian ( and her office staff ) to be welcoming and competent. I am very happy to know that she abides by the high ethical and moral standards expected by her profession. She is very warm and an excellent clinician. She has the very difficult task of treating some chronic pain patients who may also have a high psychological component to their pain so of course, as in the case of some previous Yelp comments, they are the ones to complain. I, myself, am very happy with my treatment. Unfortunately sometimes the ones with hidden agendas are the ones to post on this site. And no, I am NOT one of her colleagues. It's good to give positive feedback when it's due!"
"Dr. Chakerian is a truly helpful and empathetic professional. I have been to other pain management specialists to help manage my chronic pelvic pain. Dr. Chakerian has gone above and beyond all the rest.I appreciate her thoughtfulness and thorough medical knowledge as well as her ability tailor my pain management plan depending on the situation."
"She is without a doubt the best pain management physician I have ever been under the care of. She is caring, kind and brilliant. She is always up to date with the newest medications and procedures. She has performed multiple procedures on me with skill and the very best outcome. I highly recommend her!!!"
