Charles H. Chesnut, M.D. is a professor of radiology and medicine at the UW Neighborhood Roosevelt Clinic (Bone & Joint, and Radiology), specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of metabolic bone diseases including osteoporosis.
Dr. Chesnut received a bachelor's degree from Princeton University and a medical degree from the University of Florida, and he trained in internal medicine and nuclear medicine, as intern, resident, and fellow, at the University of Washington. His clinical interests include the translation of measurements of bone mineral density to understandable information for both the ordering health care provider and the patient.
Dr. Chesnut believes the most important aspect of patient care is attention to the overall needs of the patient, not only the medical aspects of their illness, but also the need to be assured that all of the patient's questions and concerns are answered.
Dr. Chesnut enjoys tennis, time with his grandchildren, and is also obtaining another degree (in English Literature) at the University of Washington.
