He was about financial gain, zero compassion as a so called “doctor” I wasn’t a patient in his office. I was a commodity. Cold hearted, I left there feeling an inch tall. To know a doctor can mental destroy someone is unthinkable

Dr Chenelle first explained all of the relevant details involving my emergency surgery in the ER. when I arrived so that I felt empowered to make the decision to go ahead with the surgery. I noticed when the surgery was over that most symptoms I previously had were gone. I recovered relatively quickly - more quickly than I imagined I would. Dr Chenelle was willing to answer all my questions in subsequent visits to his office. I am grateful for his wonderful surgical skills and his presence during this stressful time.
