"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

Seriously the best decision ever!"- B.B. / Google / Jul 31, 2020
"Dr. Chidester aka Dr Chiddy... not only is this PERFECTIONIST of a surgeon is PHENOMENAL but every single one of his team/work family is truly MAGNIFICENT. From day one (before they had a PENNY from me) I felt welcomed into their family as one of their own. Throughout the whole experience I was never made to feel like a number. They are here for you AT ALL TIMES response time is sensational with always astounds me because I know how heavy their workload his. Even still every patient is a priority.

"Dr Chidester and his staff are truly amazing! Every time I walk into his office his staff greets me with a smile and makes me feel so comfortable and important! Dr Chidester is amazing at what he does! I have had 4 breast augmentations over the past 25 years (with Two of those in the past year) I was never happy with the way they looked, it seemed like nobody was listening when I would tell them the look I wanted :( I heard about Dr Chidester from a friend and decided to go in for a consult to see if there was anything he could do to give me the look I wanted, long story short, I am 2 weeks post-op and could not be happier with the results!! I look at them everyday and cry! This is what I have wanted for all those years!! He can do miracles!! I can’t thank him enough for changing my body and my life at 52!!
