"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!"
"Caring, honest, responsible with follow-up care. Places patient's needs first! She has been my doctor for more 10 years. I would never change her care for anyone else. Extremely patient in managing health insurance loops & challenges. Outstanding!"
"Outstanding Caring & Professional care! - I have been a patient gor 10 years & I have been amazed with the caring, responsible, professional medical care services from Dr. Chakerian. Her ability to involve my family in my care; a non-judgemental & sensitive approach to pain management. Of all of my doctors (5) she has been the only one that truly shows that she cares for me as a person, not one more patient in pain."
"Superb - Dr. Chakerian is superb. She cares and knows how to listen to her patients."
