Could not have been more pleased with Dr. Chavez. I love having a woman doctor and she is excellent. She was very interested in wanting to help in any way she could,and took time to gather my history and problems I was experiencing. I was referred to her by my brother, also a patient. I am so pleased as well as my brother.
