Ratings for Dr. Bradley J. Chastant
I was seen by Dr. Chastant concerning a sinus infection. Get ready for a long wait before being seen. He rushed in, looked at th CT Scan, didn't really talk to me much at all and talked way above "Patient Knowledge Level". Within about 2 or 3 minutes, he told his nurse to set me up for surgery. OMG.. WHAT???? Any Dr. who wants or needs to do surgery on me WILL talk to me a lot more than that. The thing is, I'm in my late 60's and have had this condition for all my life, it just didn't feel right nor was I comfortable in allowing the surgery. I would suggest researching experiences of other patients, not just mine.
I had a melanoma on my face removed by another doctor unsuccessfully. I chose Dr. Chastant because of his qualifications with plastic surgery and previous excellent treatment for sinus problems. He successfully removed the cancer with all margins clear. There is no noticeable scaring or facial distortion. I am very pleased with he and his entire staff and will continue to use him as my doctor.
I was seen by Dr. Chastant after hitting my nose in a fall. He said I needed a Septoplasty, as I incurred a "deviated septum" as a result of my fall. Although I experienced no symptoms, I trusted Dr. Chastant and went along with the surgery. On the morning of which, he stated that he would also like to make cosmetic changes during the surgery. He actually referred to a member of his administrative staff, stating "A nose like I gave ___ would look good on you." I declined, as I was pleased with the appearance of my natural nose. In conclusion, I awoke with a nose unsatisfactory both in function & appearance. Cosmetic changes were indeed made without consent. I sought the medical attention of a surgeon who specializes in "botched" jobs. $10,000 + 2 years later, my nose is as close to normal as it will get. A truly unfortunate experience.
This Dr operated on me twice and the 2nd surgery damaged the nerve to my vocal cords. When I was unable to breath he told me I had asthma and put me on treatments that did not work. I had to find out on my own what was wrong. I had to have a third surgery and a trac. I nearly died simply because he did not want to admit he made a mistake.
