Medical Services and Patient Information

Dr. Chester is board certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine, as well as by the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

He is a specialist in two different medical fields: addiction medicine and chronic pain.

He has practicing medicine on Maui since 2002.

As an Addictionologist

In a private, one-on-one outpatient office setting, Dr. Chester uses scientifically proven medication and counseling techniques to help people gain control over withdrawals, cravings, overuse, high-risk use, and hazardous or harmful use of the following:

  • Opioids
  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Nicotine/Tobacco
  • Amphetamines/Methamphetamines
  • Cocaine
  • Cannabis

Withdrawal symptom management without being in a locked hospital or residential “detox” center can often be a more comfortable option. Our office is located in Wailuku, but most appointments are through telehealth using Zoom Healthcare. We can work around your schedule and lifestyle. Your safety, privacy and confidentiality are our top priorities.

By utilizing standard, time-tested medications, Dr. Chester can help you reduce the physical and emotional effects from coming down from alcohol, and any other drugs or medications. A gentle tapering versus an abrupt stop from any substance would be discussed during your initial meeting.

Phase two would include counseling, and depending on the goals you set together, strategies to keep your alcohol consumption to a minimum or completely off all alcohol use.

Dr. Chester teaches other healthcare professionals this approach, so you could discuss several strategies to help you safely and comfortably achieve your goals. Dr. Chester is a firm believer in reducing stigma associated with alcohol use disorder, hazardous drinking, and harmful drinking. If you currently have legal issues resulting from your alcohol and/or drug use, he is familiar with the court system.

As an Osteopathic Physician or D.O.

Dr. Chester was medically trained and licensed like an M.D., but received an additional three years of hands-on training in the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system is your body’s nerves, muscles, and bones. He treats people with pain and performs osteopathic manipulations, trigger point injections, and tests for muscle/nerve problems, utilizing electrodiagnostic medicine/EMG and nerve conduction studies.
