4 out of 5 stars Restylane

Great experience

I have had two elective procedures with Dr. Chatham and both turned out just as I hoped. He is very straight forward and honest in his "diagnosis". He along with his staff are super friendly making sure you are treated with care and respect. I would have no issues with recommending him to family, friends or even strangers for elective and necessary treatments.

5 out of 5 stars Ear Surgery

I love my results

Dr Chatham was really nice and straightforward. He played out the entire procedure before it happened and it went exactly how he said it would. I love my results. My new ears have given me so much confidence and I'm so thankful to Dr. Chatham. I would recommend this procedure to anyone considering it.

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Dr. Chatham is great

Dr. Chatham performed my septoplasty and I had a great experience. He was very personable and his entire staff were very helpful through the entire process. I couldn't be any happier with the results.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Awesome Dr. and Awesome Staff! Call them today!

I looked for a Dr to trust with my face for botox and laser treatment on redness on my cheeks....after my 1st visit with Dr. Chatham I knew I was in great hands. He is honest, caring, and efficient at an affordable price. His work leaves me looking naturally younger and not "harshly worked on." Dr. Chatham's staff is always kind and helpful. It's been so refreshing to have a Dr. and office...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty


I recommend Dr. Chatham to everyone I know. Everyone in his office is extremely friendly and will help you out with whatever they can. And Dr. Chatham genuinely cares for his patients. My surgery went excellent and after a week all I experienced was slight swelling. My nose looks great and I can breathe a lot better after just eight months. I'm so happy with my experience; I wish Dr. Chatham...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

He's a blepharoplasty genius!

Dr. Chatham and his staff have always been super friendly, helpful with any questions I have had. Professional and very skilled. His work has always left me feeling refreshed without looking "worked on". Natural and renewed is my goal as opposed to reworked and unfamiliar. I appreciate his advice when I may want a specific procedure that he could make more money on and yet he would steer me...

5 out of 5 stars Scars Treatment

No matter how big or small - Louisville, KY

I have been going to Dr. Chatham for a couple years receiving injections into some scar tissue. He has given me great advice and never pushed me to do unnecessary treatments like some doctors will. I trust him to always give me sound, professional advice.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Can't imagine going to anyone else!

I have been going to Dr. Chatham 3-4 times a year for 2 years for Botox. Mainly for lifting the brow. He always takes his time and knows exactly how much I need. I never want to look like I have a face full of fillers...We all know that look:) In January of this year I went to him for eyelid surgery ( saggy eyelids). I was nervous, he was excellent! No longer look in need of a constant...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Excellent, Patient Centered, Health-Care - Indiana, IN

Dr. Chatham has repeatably overwhelmed my wife and I with his attentiveness, concern for my well-being and willingness to go to bat against the insurance company when they disputed the medical necessity of my rhinoplasty. Nasal surgery was, for me, a road to a better life. Dr. Chatham called to check on me while recovering in the hospital, and answered any of my numerous questions...
