Ratings for Dr. Dara Chafik
Dr. Chafik, said at my age "59" why have surgery, the pain will go away. It was a workman's comp claim. I had a second opinion, the doctor said Chafik was wrong, I would live with the pain until I die. Chafik offered to due surgery after twice telling me I didn't need it. No way was I going to let him cut into my shoulder. Bottom line is I didn't have surgery , my shoulder keeps me awake every night due to the pain, one year later. If your surgeon doesn't get it , get one that does.
Listened carefully to my shoulder concerns (spent a lot of time describing diagnosis), was very respectful, polite and seems to be a very nice person. He comes across as knowledgeable. Displayed good judgement and conservative course worked well for me. Runs a little late sometimes.
