Dr. Chahfe is a highly-regarded otolaryngologist specializing in head and neck cancer. He is one of very few physicians who perform minimally invasive thyroid and parathyroid surgery, as well as who diagnose and treat swallowing disorders. 

Serving as the Founder of The Chahfe Center in Utica, New York, he treats diseases of the ears, nose and throat in children and adults.

The mission of The Chahfe Center is “to provide an uncompromised quality of leading edge medical and surgical care, with state-of-the-art procedures to our patients in a compassionate, professional, friendly environment.”

Back in 1985, Dr. Chahfe graduated with his medical degree from the University of Sherbrooke Medical School in Canada.

With years of experience in his field, the doctor is board-certified through the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (ABOHNS). The ABOHNS serves the public by assuring that diplomates meet the standards of training, knowledge, and professionalism through initial and continuing certification.

In his current practice, Dr. Chahfe is on active staff & serves as the Chief of Surgery at St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica (1994 – present), and is a Clinical Professor of Surgery at the New England School of Medicine (2007 – present).
