When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

No Problems Here

Since moving to the area a year-and-a-half ago, I have gone to Dr Chidester a few times and have been pleased. She has solved any issues I have come in with. I called once to simply request a referral to a specialist and was given this without any problems whatsoever. Any appointment I have had has gone quickly and without problems. I am pleased with her and her office.
