Do not listen k the haters!!! Dr Chalian saved my life!!! He is among the most well regarded and skilled surgeons in tw country. He has a wonderful caring personality and spent as much time with me as I needed. He even gave me his cell phone number the weekend before my surgery! His staff is equally compassionate and professional. I literally trust him with my life!!!

A legend in his own mind. Ego too immense to fit in examining room. Doesnt listen and tells 59 yo woman cancer patient that he doesnt want to "waste money on tests to diagnose her problems". This man is dangerous, rude, arrogant.RUN to the nearest EXIT.

Dr Chalian is an excellent doctor! I would highly recommend him. He and his staff are extremely professional, kind, and compassionate. I had a thyroidectomy and felt I was in very good hands and received top notch care.

Dr. Chalian was my second opinion Dr. He was fantastic. I am very happy with my surgery. I didn't have as much scarring and he didn't have to take the entire Parotid Gland out like the Dr. would have on my first opinion. I felt like I was in good hands with him and he is not only a Dr. who teaches other Dr.'s but he is also a plastic surgeon. He has an excellent staff and overall I had a good experience with everyone at the Univ. of Penn Hopsital. I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Chalian was referred to me to perform thyroid surgery for my cancer. He is very nice and helpful. He explained the surgery thoroughly and for possible complications.
