5 out of 5 stars Botox

100% Recommend

Dr. Chatham and his office staff are impeccable. I feel so comfortable in the office and know I'm going to leave happy, I simply have no reason to ever look anywhere else! Dr. Chatham makes sure to spend a good deal of time with clients, genuinely listens to concerns, and is careful not to go overboard or give people that overdone celebrity look. He will never push you to do more, or anything that you wouldn't be comfortable with. I absolutely trust him 100% with my face -- I've had botox, restylane, laser skin treatments, and so far I've never bruised (though we could just have been lucky!). I've even gotten my husband to see Dr. Chatham for botox with great results. I would recommend him to anyone looking for preventative maintenance (I'm only 31), or to achieve a more youthful look!

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra Aesthetic

Great doctor, excellent results!!

Dr. Chatham is highly skilled and very personable. I have had Botox, Dysport, dermal fillers, Sculptra, IPL, and laser treatments with natural results. I drive out of my way for his expertise. Staff is friendly and atmosphere is comfortable.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

Dr. Chatham is a rare gem to be treasured!

Dr. Chatham is highly intelligent yet very down to earth. He was genuinely interested in my concerns and he listened!! My goal for the visit: Botox & possibly filler with a result of looking refreshed and not overdone. He surpassed my expectations on so many levels! I will never dread getting filler again because Dr. Chatham is unbelievably gentle! The total cost was about $800-$1,000 less...

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

The best decision I could have made!

I was totally impressed with Dr. Chatham and his entire staff on my first visit. He was so kind, professional and very thorough with details about the surgery he would need to do for me. Due to an accident that broke my nose, I suffered severe blockage and had difficulty breathing. This affected my sleeping. I initially went to an ENT doctor, but after talking with others, I decided to see Dr....

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

5 stars all around

Dr. Chatham is truly amazing... My nose was a mess from a break and deviated septum. I thought it would never look normal, or if I fixed it it would look like I had something done. He was my 4th opinion, and I knew from the first 5 minutes he was my guy. His portfolio is beautiful, and he made me feel at ease. I felt like the other doctors were telling me what I wanted to hear, and I wasn't...

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...
