Dr Chengelis got me in to see him within 48 hours of my pleading(literally called on a monday, in tuesday), every other place told me 6 weeks before they could see me. That itself is nuts. The surgery & recovery was way easier than I imagined and I will go back if my other side decides to rupture without hesitation

Dr. Chengelis worked on my in two cases. The first was an umbilical hernia; the second was a gallbladder removal. The umbilical hernia went extremely well and follow up was excellent by Dr. Chengelis and his staff. My gall bladder surgery was very necessary due to being packed with gallstones and affecting the organs around it Dr. Chengelis did an amazing job. In and out in a half day. Four days recovery. Excellent follow up. No further complications. His staff was great during all of my appointments. Dr. Chengelis was so patient and generous with his time. He gave excellent easy to understand answers to all my questions and took the time to make sure I was at ease with the procedure. He really made an effort to understand me as an individual and not just a patient. It helps that he is not just one of a large number of surgeons in a large practice who don’t have time for patients and just see each case as another procedure. I would strongly recommend Dr. Chengelis for any surgery that you find you need in the future.

I lived with the pain of my hernia for far too long. I limited my activities. I assumed the pain of a hernia repair surgery and recovery was worse the the pain of the hernia. After Dr. Chengais skillfully performed robotic hernia surgery. I felt minimum discomfort post operatively. I never needed any pain medication. My surgery and recovery were a walk in the park compared with the day to day pain I was living with. prior to the surgery. My primary care physician recommended Dr. Chengais. I would strongly recommend Dr. Chengais for surgical repair to anyone living with a hernia!

Dr. Chengelis removed my gallbladder the end of March and I couldn’t be happier. I had been having pain for over three years with no identifiable stones, but my HIDA scan showed my gallbladder was hyperkinetic (97.4%) and the test also caused me pain. Doctor after doctor dismissed my symptoms until I had a consultation with Dr. Chengelis. He listened, cared, and agreed to do the surgery based on all the information he had. When the gallbladder was removed it showed chronic cholecystitis and I am now pain free. I am incredibly grateful to have had a doctor that took my symptoms seriously and cared enough to help. I highly recommend Dr. Chengelis!

Dr. Chengelis deserves a 10 star! I felt absolutely confident with Dr. Chengelis before the surgery and his thorough process to make sure it went 100% correct. I trusted him completely and he and his team did an excellent job removing my gall bladder and coordinating everything involved. A million thanks go out to him and his team for everything and making the whole process as painless as possible. I only hope I was as good of a patient as he was the professional. Thank you doctor! Also thank you to the entire nursing staff and assistants in the Beaumont system who I came in contact with-you were all very special and so kind and helpful and really put me at ease through it all!

Dr. Chengelis put me at ease from the moment I met him. I had VGS last year and it has changed my life for the better. I can breathe, move and feel younger than I have in years. Dr Chengelis explained my options and what to expect during and after surgery. His expertise and kindness made me comfortable right away. I would highly recommend this surgery and especially Dr. Chengelis to everyone looking to better their lives.

Dr. Chengelis did a great job with my laparoscopic gallbladder surgery. I had very little post op pain and a quick recovery. The gallbladder attack that I had was much more painful than the surgery itself!

I was very pleased with Dr. Chengelis& his team. When I met Dr. Chengelis I knew I had picked the perfect surgeon to do my sleeve surgery. His calm voice assured me that my third time of going through the program would be a charm. I chickened out twice but with all the resent changes that has occurred in my life. 1. Being diagnosed with MS.8/22/2016 2. Diagnosed with optic neuritis in my left eye which has left me blind8/2016. 3. Primary care doctor complaining about my fluctuating weight that needed to be lost due to my MS.4 my sister passing away 10/ 10/ 2020 and she didn't get her health under control where she will be able to lose the weight to have the bariatric surgery herself so she inspired me to go ahead and have the surgery myself meeting dr. Chengelis really helped me to accomplish a goal that my sister never got well enough to accomplish herself I did it, I'm happy, I recommend Dr. Chengelis as your surgeon. My pain was the day of surgery and sore after then No pain medicine needed at all after first few days. My start wt.333 and already down 70 plbs. They inspired me Now let me inspire you to get it done for a better feeling. It will give the mind set once you see or hear someone else noticing you Thanks for this opportunity for a new life

Dr. Chengelis and his staff were professional yet approachable. Knowing that you need surgery is intimidating and apprehensive for the average person. When Dr. C confidently told me he could repair me - I became more relaxed and excepting of having surgery. I was convinced my necessary procedure would be routine for him. It is called bedside manner and Dr. C had it for me. I am totally satisfied with him and his team. I would not hesitate to see him again if I should ever develop an issue that is in his wheelhouse of expertise. Thank you DR. C

Dr. Changelis has been nothing short of a miracle worker. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my surgical procedure. I would definitely recommend his services to any and all seeking the same procedure. There was never a moment of doubt when I felt uncomfortable. I just pray that Dr. Changelis continues on with his practice. And may the God of this universe continue to bless him and keep. And I could not have been more please with his front office personnel. Keep up the good work and stay safe.

Wonderful, caring, life saving. There are not enough praises I can give Dr. Chengelis. He is expert and gentle. He listens to his patients and remembers what they say. He repaired my husband's hernia excellently. Then performed gastric sleeve surgery on me. I had struggled with weight for years and my diabetes was out of control. He took on my difficult case and at 67 years old, I have a new life. The operation was quick and painless, only one night in the hospital. My ravenous appetite was gone and the pounds began to disappear, as did my diabetes. I cannot thank him enough. Thank you also to Jessica and the rest of his staff who were just great. I am very grateful.

I first had the sleeve done 3 years ago by another physician. I had horrible reflux. I went to see Dr Chengelis who thoroughly explained why I was having reflux and suggested I have the RNY to help with reflux. I really didn’t need it for weight gain. We did discuss that I would probably still lose some weight 20-30lb and I lost an additional 25lb! He’s right on the money! I was nervous and scared much more so from the sleeve. With his reassurance I went through with the surgery. It was as he said a bigger punch to the gut than the sleeve, but it was a game changer! Instantly I could drink with zero reflux!!! 6 months later I feel my best ever, I have so much confidence in my appearance and just overall as a person. I cannot thank him enough I feel as if he gave me a second chance at life! You do need to maintain a healthy lifestyle but I absolutely can enjoy what I desire in moderation! Jessica at his office makes you feel like you’re the only patient, she’s compassionate, sweet, and so professional! Thank you Dr. Chengelis for giving me my life back!
