Dr. Chatham is the most caring and professional doctor. There is none better. He and his staff are polite and courteous to everyone. No matter what the procedure he puts you at ease, takes time to explain everything and answers questions. His work is excellent and I would highly recommend him.

I'm not a fan of needles, but knew that I needed something to help with the lines in my forehead. I didn't want to look frozen or plastic, like so many other women whose faces just looked unnatural. I'd visited Dr. Chatham before and was thrilled with the results and am thrilled again! Awesome job - I just look "refreshed" - totally natural!

Dr. Chatham was so caring and genuine that I am so glad I chose him to do my surgery. He did an awesome job and made me feel at ease the whole time. He truly is a wonderful doctor and I would recommend him to anyone! I was so nervous going into all of this but he did a great job reassuring me and I knew that I was in good hands with him. I was very impressed with him before and after my surgery. He and his staff were all so easy to deal with and that made the whole experience a lot easier. He talked to me and asked me alot of questions making sure I was ready for the surgery, which made me realize he cared about how his patients actually felt. I have no regrets about choosing Dr. Chatham and would definitely do it over again! It truly has changed my life already!!

I know he has two successful practices, but he and his staff make me feel like I am their only patient. The energy in both offices is very calming.

Dr. Chatham is truly an artist to the highest degree. I could not be happier with the results, and I would not trust my face in the hands of anyone else.

Was referred from another Doctor. I would NEVER trust anyone else. He is extremely personable...absolutely no pain has ever been experienced. I have felt absolutely comfortable in his office and his office personnel are very helpful and pleasant.

An old friend of mine who was a patient of Dr. Chatham's recommended him to me and I am grateful to her. I have never known a physican who was more gifted or more patient. He never oversells any procedure-- really, it is just the opposite. I have, without exception, been more pleased with the results of every procedure than Dr. Chatham led me to believe I might be before it was done. I credit Dr. Chatham with much of the confidence and good feeling I have about my appearance, even though many, most really, of my colleagues and others I meet in my work are younger than I am. I recommend Dr. Chatham and his staff without reservation.

I went to Dr. Chatham's office a couple weeks ago with concerns of loss of volume in my face due to the aging process. Dr. Chatham and his staff were so friendly and welcoming. I was so impressed by how compassionate he was and the time he took to listen and discuss with me the over all procedure of using Juvederm. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Chatham for helping me to restore myself image.

Simply the best!Updated on 22 Jan 2013:Simply the best! My experience with Dr. Chatham's work has been beyond my greatest expectations! He has done a facelift and eyelid lift for me and while no one knows I've had surgery, I've had numerous compliments about how much younger and thinner I look. And no, I haven't lost weight! Dr. Chatham's work is done with absolute finesse and attention to detail. No startling changes, just a younger, better version of me! My only regret is not having it done sooner. I can recommend Dr. Chatham and his staff with no reservations! He is an artist!

He is always up on the latest procedures AND he was President of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. If a procedure isn't right for you, he won't do it just for the money. Dr. Chatham always goes the extra mile for his patients. He also does lots of cool volunteer work. Dr Chatham did a great job with my eyelids. He has done other parts of my face as well. He is very organized and prepared.He makes sure the patient is prepared as well. I just love his staff. They are all so gentle and kind. I am very happy with the results. I look natural. I am in the entertainment industry.It is very important for my face to look spectacular!

He's the top of his field! I know I wouldn't go to anybody else for my face. I've been a patient for over 13 years and have done various procedures. I live in Florida and I still come back to Indiana/Kentucky because I trust him. Plus his staff is so nice! Highly recommend him for any procedure on the face/neck because he knows what he's doing.
