He is a great doctor and he makes you feel safe even with the diagnosis that you have been given. He tells you what you need to hear and what you need to do. He is very matter of fact which I admire in a doctor. You are not just a number!!!

I have SLE, he treats other family members who have SLE. We all highly respect him. He listens, not many doctors truly listen. He has saved my life.

I found Dr. Chatham to be abrupt, curt and frankly very full of himself. I thought we just got off on the wrong foot and tried several more times to establish a relationship with him but, to no avail. Bye bye Dr. Chatham.....
My team leader for sle and other connective tissue disorders
Self-verified patient of Dr. Walter Chatham - Posted on April 11th, 2013
As having retired from my nursing in 2002 with the diagnosis of SLE and other connective tissue disease unspecified, I started putting together what I thought would be an aggressive MD and alot of experience to back up his knowledge. First attempt was a failure. One of the physicians called me"walking death". Second attempt MD says give me a chance to cure you. Will since there is no cure that one flopped also. Dr Chatham's name came over my mothers desk where she held a position with the state as an RN in utilization and inspection of Hospitals, Home Health, hospices, rehab and nursing homes. All I can say is after my first visit with mom in tow she stated he is the one. Any new breakthroughs he will know or would have done it his self. I've been with Dr. Chatham for about ten years, I'm monitored very closely especially my eyes and I owe my 10 yrs to him and the team he has put together to keep me healthy and enjoying life.
Very grateful to Dr. Chatham!!!

I love Dr. Chatham. He treats me with great kindness & respect. He makes me feel like a person rather than a chart number. He listens to what you have to say with an open mind, patience, compassion & understanding. Dr. Chatham also sees & treats 3 of my family members as well. I truely believe without Dr. Chatham I would not be alive today. I am so very thankful that he is my doctor. He is truely an amazing & intelligent doctor.
Best doctor on the planet!
A patient who verified they visited Dr. Walter Chatham - Posted on November 20th, 2012
Dr. Chatham is first and foremost an amazing and wonderful human being! His expertise is unmatched. He is quite possibly the best rheumatologist on the planet. How one man can have such a big brain without a huge ego is a mystery to me. Lest I not forget to mention his boundless, seemingly endless energy for all the responsibilities that he bears. An excellent diagnostician with a most compassionate nature, I find him to be extremely knowledgeable, rather humble, very honest, reliable, and is quite "tuned in" making my complicated medical issues much more manageable. He is genuinely concerned about his patients and takes a great deal of time and care to cover all details, answer all questions with patience and accuracy while putting me totally at ease gifting a sense of hope. He is willing to listen and note his patients' concerns, which is a rarity these days. I find much comfort in the knowledge that if I have a problem, a flare or other issue, I won't be passed over as he is just a phone call away and will see me, without hesitation, on an as needed basis. He's the best!
The importance of having a trusted medical team
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Walter Chatham - Posted on September 30th, 2012
As being a SLE patient for almost ten years I feel I have built a professional trust in Dr. Chatham's course of tx chosen to maintain a good quality of life. I feel if there are changes in my condition which can happen often with SLE, Dr. Chatham has always been available to access and alter any medications. He exhibits a professional but concerning manner. A main part of chronic illnesses is fear of unknown and systemic degeneration. When you trust your specialist, anxiety levels limit exacerbations of a dx process. Dr. Chatham comes with years of expertise so confidence is easy to gain.
