"Did you know Dr. Chisester is also a reconstructive hand surgeon and hand specialist? My father was having major trouble with his hands for over a year. I direct messaged Dr. Chisester on Instagram and not only did HE respond, he took time to explain things my dad could do until he was able to get an appointment. My dad expressed how much he loved Dr. C during his appointments. He has amazing bed aide manner, an amazing staff, and truly cares about his patients, their happiness and really makes sure he provides stellar service! My dad was so happy with with him that I know for a fact if I ever chose plastic surgery or need a hand specialist he’s the only doctor I would contact and the only doctor I will recommend! Do yourself a favor and get on his books ASAP!!! Thank you Dr. Chidester and staff!!"- C.S. / Google / Jun 24, 2020
"I had heard of Dr. Chidester through so many people that I knew exactly who I wanted to do my surgery when I finally took the plunge. He’s incredibly professional, kind, knowledgeable and fun. His staff is the same way. I was comfortable going under the knife and knowing that the results would be amazing. The entire process was easy and simple. He even responded to my crazy drug fueled rage after the surgery. You won’t be disappointed! That is if you can nab an appointment. 10/10"- T.L. / Google / Nov 13, 2020

"Dr chidester is amazing! He pays great attention to detail and made sure I felt taken care of and all my questions were answered. He did my breast reconstruction case which has always made me feel self conscious. I had been to other consultations with plastic surgeons. He is the only one I felt so comfortable with. Also, he had other options that no one had offered me. He is a really popular and great plastic surgeon and think it’s great he said yes to my case! He never promises perfection but comes pretty close to it! I feel pretty great and my confidence has gone up so much! Safe to say he will always be an important part of my journey through life and his knowledge and expertise will always have a positive impact on my life and others. His office staff as well always had time to answer all my questions along the way and were very kind."- N.I. / Google / Nov 09, 2020
