I had to go to him at the recommendation of my dermatologist. He is a very nice man. I feel bad leaving a bad review kind of but not really. My leg is messed up for life now. I had a melanoma only 1 mm deep. I should've canceled the surgery. I didn't expect the outcome to be so bad as it is. He originally told me ah a few days, you will be back to work. Drew how big an incision he would make. I swear the incision was bigger than that. The swelling on my leg has been terrible and it was well over a month of recovery, not 2 days. Every time I called with a problem, I got told "that's normal". Well if it was, why wasn't I told all these possibilities from the beginning? I'm very upset as I like to wear heels and shorter dresses sometimes and I feel I have a disfigured leg now. Very unhappy. I'll never go any further with surgery God forbid another melanoma presents.

He is a very kind and compassionate doctor with a great sense of humor. He is very lighthearted and puts you at ease. I feel lucky to have found this doctor!

Dr. Chagares has treated my wife, children and me for many years. He is absolutely terrific. We are so fortunate to have a doctor who listens to our complaints and spends the necessary time to diagnose our problems. On several occasions he has met us in the emergency room when we most needed his expertise. He never complains and always has a caring smile on his face. I only wish the other doctors we know cared as much as Dr. Chagares. If you need a surgeon there is no one better or more trustworthy. Simply the best!

Dr. Chagares misdiagnosed me with an umbilical hernia without feeling my abdomen or ordering any medical tests. He put me under anesthesia in a surgi center before discovering that I actually did not have a hernia. He was pompous, arrogant, and did not listen to a word I said. After going for a CT scan, it was discovered that I had a desmoid tumor and could have died without life saving surgery performed by another amazing surgeon. Run as fast as you can from this man who thinks he knows everything and is more concerned with fancy trips, cars and his tan than he is with your health and safety.

I would HIGHLY reccomend Dr. Chagares to anyone in need of a surgeon. He was professional, kind, informative and put all of my fears of surgery at ease. His staff is just as awesome! He told me exactly what I was to expect and need and he was spot on. A fantastic doctor overall!!!

I had an appointment with him today and from the moment I made the appointment last week I have been a wreck. The staff was super comforting and very sweet when I got to the office and when I met Dr Chagares I knew he was the surgeon for me. He went through every option with me since I am rather young and also asked if I wanted him to report back to my obgyn and my primary, which I thought was great! Turns out I will will needing one surgery and I definitely don't hesitate to say he is my surgeon!

I didn't find this guy a miracle worker as he's depicted by others . I told him my dilemma . He did a CT Scan and told me there was nothing wrong to my and other doctors amaze . He is quite friendly but not in the renowned doctor league . He didn't listen and wasted multiple hours of my personal time . I found him to be inept about my concerns . I was surprised and reading so many positive reviews , for any complicated issues , it would be wise to find a doctor who can handle them .
