This doctor does not understand that the kidneys are not the only organ in the body - there is also a set of lungs. And while the kidneys may love hydration, the lungs do not. Over hydration may not be bad for the kidneys, but it can cause pulmonary edema. Moreover, determining the CAUSE of the dehydration and treating that is a better shot than just develop-may-care hydration. The latter may be easier but not useful and possibly harmful in the end.

Worst doctor I ever met. ARROGANT, PIG HEADED, does not listen to a word you have to say. Had major fluid issues told me it was in my head. Went to new neurologist and found out I only had 75 percent kidney function. Worst doctor I ever dealt with. DO NOT GO TOO.

Very caring and informative doctor. The staff in the lab and most of the office staff definitely need some coaching in how to speak and act professionally. Dr. Chaffin is outstanding in diagnosing and treating his patients. The actions of others in the office are not reflective of his care.
