Dr. Chamie is the most empathetic, most interactive, most inquisitive, most open minded, and most knowledgeable doctor I have ever worked with. I plan to continue to see Dr. Chamie as my primary care provider, even though I have recently moved a considerable distance away from her office.Providence Patient
Doctor is very good.Providence Patient
Dr Chamie is a caring doctor. When I need care, I feel heard and not rushed. She is very complete in her explanations and diagnosis. We were required to change to a PCP a few years ago and I was reluctant to leave my Dr. whom I had received care from for numerous years. However, I could not be more pleased with the care I have received from Dr. Chamie. Excellent provider!Providence Patient

Dr. Chamie is amazing, but I am dissatisfied with the Providence Gateway clinic overall. It takes a long time to get an appointment, the people doing the scheduling seem under-qualified and lack a sense of urgency or empathy, and the wait times for scheduled appointments are too long. Lastly, the lab waiting room is frequently dirty and full of people who seem very sick or contagious and should be separated from healthy people just there to get lab work. My elderly parents also are patients here and I am appalled at how their last few health issues, some of which have been serious, have been mishandled by this practice. It takes them far too long to get follow-up appointments, and the support staff who schedule them don't seem to have any sense of care or urgency for their needs. [...]Providence Patient
