Ratings for Dr. George Chami
I've seen Dr. Chami for a few years now, and he has been absolutely fantastic. He is incredibly intelligent and well-respected (various doctors I've seen speak very highly of him). He takes the time to answer all of my questions in person, calls me with test results and explains them thoroughly, and in serious situations, I've been able to contact him at the hospital. I've also been weary of taking some medications due to the side effects, and Dr. Chami has been wonderful in working around that personal preference. However, he is honest, when I get worse, that I would have to take certain medications based on his recommendations. In which case, I've trusted him and have recovered extremely well! I can truly say I wouldn't be nearly as healthy as I am today if it wasn't for him, and all of the characteristics I've listed above. Just be an advocate for your own health, and you will love having Dr. Chami as your primary Gastroenterologist!
My husband was sent to him to do a procedure , he just scoped my husband and did not do a dam thing for him, it was a total disappointment, When one Dr. sends you somewhere the other ones will not override his decision. My husband finally went for surgery even though there were other options, but no one no one offered them to us. My husband is now dead as a result of surgery done at the famous????????St. Pauls hospital, dead at 66, cannot believe it, be careful very careful in your decisions for your loved ones.
Best Doctor appointment I had ever been too! I have had gastro issues for years and family doctors have just been brushing me off or giving me new medication. Dr Chami made me feel welcome, heard and understood with a treatment plan in place within minutes! Great experience!
The most arrogant doctor I have ever seen. I actually think he enjoys being arrogant. He is condescending and rude. He smirks at you in your appointment. I refused to follow his recommended drug treatment due to the side effects. It is my right to refuse the medication. Because I will not take the medication, he will no longer see me. The only way to keep track of my disease is to do colonoscopies or MRIs. My GP told me that the MRI can only be requested by a specialist. He is the specialist and he has dismissed me. Find someone else. Listen to those on this forum who are warning you against seeing him!!
Wow I can't believe all of the comments about his bedside manner. I personally don't care about somebodies bed side manner that is going to perform a procedure on me, BUT I found dr. Chami and all his staff to be very professional and comforting. After the procedure Dr. Chami had to tell me that I have colon cancer which he did in a very professional comforting manner. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chami
