About Me

Each patient is a separate individual that has individual background and problems that need careful approach and empathy. Neurologic diseases are mostly devastating and not curable. Understanding family and patient mind state to relate to patient is very important for Dr. C.

What People Say About Dr. Amaiak Chilingaryan, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had a great experience with the doctors office. The office staff was very helpful scheduling the appointment. Prior to scheduling they were very efficient and screened me ensuring that I was appropriate for their clinic. I was told by my doctors that my hands complaints were due to joint problems or arthritis. However I saw Dr. Chilingaryan and he diagnosed me with his electrical nerve test that I have nerve problems in my wrist. He treated me and prescribed therapy. I’m very helpful that finally my missed diagnosis was caught. I highly recommend this doctor.

Dr. Chilingaryan is an adequate physician, but has terrible bedside manner and does not see to actually pay much attention to his patient’s needs. He seems to be in a rush to get out of the room when you have an appointment with him. I have never seen someone break negative news so terribly. I understand if he is unable to provide a solution, but to lack basic empathy when delivering news is ridiculous. He takes a long time in getting back to you regarding blood work. If you call his staff to ask questions, they are very discourteous and say that he is busy with other patients as well as sicker patients in the hospital. I waited over a month for a response from him, each time the staff belittling the urgency of my request when I called for an update. I strongly recommend finding another physician if your insurance allows you to. If worst case scenario you are stuck with him, I objectively think he is a decent diagnostician. Just expect to receive terrible patient care.

So kind to our family member who he recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. He has been very respectful and patient in conversing with them which we appreciate. He has gone the extra mile returning a call after hours and staying late to meet with our whole family to help our family member understand their diagnosis.

Honestly, I had no idea migraine could be treated. He put me on 3 mo treatment, and now I have migraines once in a blue moon instead of weekly. It's a huge deal for me. People who have migraines know what I'm talking about.

Had a bad experience with this Dr. He did unnecessary tests, did not come up with any diagnosis, was not clear in patient education. At the end because he had no clue and was probably still trying to get every single penny from the Medicare suggested another painful invasive procedure without having any grounds! We left his office rather angry, we will never recommend him to anyone. He needs years of experience, I think he just got out of college.
