Dr. Chaum was amazing! I came into the clinic after having surgery out-of-state, traveling 5 days across country during our move, and he was so caring and took time with me - I was thoroughly impressed!!

For not being my regular doctor, treated me with courtesy, exalted the work in my eyes of my regular doctor and answered all my questions.
