long time patient

I've been going to Dr. Chadband every 3 mo. for over 11 years and he is a wonderful doctor. Don't blame the rudeness of his office staff on him. He didn't hire them. The hospital did. He is extremely knowledgable and caring. If you follow the rules he gives you to keep you healthy, you shouldn't have a problem with him. He is only looking out for you. If I need a specialist in another area, I always trust him to send me to the best and he has. He is my favorite doctor and I would trust him with my life. He's the one who found my thyroid cancer several years ago or I would have never known. He sent me to an excellent surgeon, had it taken out and no problems since. If you need a great endocrinologist or diabetes doctor, in my opinion, he's the one.

Absolutely Horrible!

Steer clear of this doctor!! His staff is extremely rude and incompetent! It takes forever to get an appointment and once you do get in, prepared to have your appointment canceled and rescheduled multiple times before you are ever seen. He doesn't follow up on blood tests he asks you to have run. He is dismissive and often misses important information because he just doesn't listen. The MOST frustrating thing is that he doesn't even have admitting privileges at any of the local hospitals. If you are sick and need to be admitted to the hospital, plan on sitting in the ER until they decide whether to admit you. Please save yourself the time and frustration and AVOID this doctor at all costs!!!

Office staff is the worst I've ever experienced

Dr. Chadband is now on Vann Road in Trussville. It is impossible to get his office to do even the simplest things, such as send a routine prescription to the local CVS. This took me several phone calls and two trips to the doctor's office FOR ONE PRESCRIPTION. Clerks at two local CVS's said that they have had exactly the same experience with other patients who have tried to deal with this office. I strongly advise against trying to deal with this office, which is unfortunate because Dr. Chandband was nice and knowledgeable.
