Dr. Chin’s Reviews

March 21, 2024

Dr. Chin is a very pleasant, personable man. He always takes time to sit and chat and is always up to date on my medical records and gives great advise and care a well as listens to any concerns or questions I have. Definitely recommend this physician!

Dr. Chin is great! He knows people may be anxious about having a biopsy, but really tries to make the entire process lighthearted. Even men afterwards when explaining everything to my husband, he had fun with it. You can tell he really enjoys what he does! Would absolutely recommend him!

The first two times I seen Dr Chin he asked if I had any questions before walking me out, but the last few times he has seemed very rushed. I'm not sure why this has changed with him, but will bring it up with him at next appointment as I do have tons of questions after procedure and diagnosis I was given.

Provider was rude and condescending. I will be getting a second opinion elsewhere. I feel it was a waste of my time.

He never seems to listen to my concerns about my health. He tells me only about what he can see. Not what I see nor feel.
