Dr. Burhan is always thorough in his examinations, knowledgeable of my medical history, and cordial in communicating. I have confidence in his diagnoses and care. I am grateful for his expertise and service.

Dr. Chinikhanwala is the best and so is his wonderful office staff. I'm so thankful for his presence in our community, that he's been there for my needs and that I can trust his knowledge and experience. I'm a very grateful patient.

I have been using Dr. Burhan for years and find him very interested,caring and helpful I have no problems getting an unplanned appointment. If my appointment is at 3 PM and I walk in at 8 AM I am seen right away without much of a wait. I have talked to other Doctors and they always ask me if he is my Rheumatologist. That tells me that he is respected by other Doctors. I highly recommend him.

Dr B is fantastic! After suffering for years with psoriatic arthritis, my mother came across Dr Chinikhanwala. For almost four years now, every week when I take my mother for her shots, he asks how she's doing, they chit-chat and he seems genuinely concerned. He has helped my mother in more ways than I can count. I can't rave about him enough, truly. He's got a big heart and listens to every problem my mother brings up. I would suggest him to anyone!

Other patient is correct he does think he's God. He's NOT. After 3 months wait for appointment, spends seconds with you. Due diligence. Just Ask around, even other Doctor's opinions of him.

I consider myself lucky to have found Dr. Burhan (as he is normally referred to) because he was very knowledgeable, helped me understand my afflictions (both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis) and I thought he was very personable. When I was telling a friend about my experiences, she said she has him also as her physician and really felt pleased also. I had 3 or 4 appointments over 2 years ago but had a cortisone shot January 2014 and it is just wearing off now so I will be going back soon.

Would not listen to me. Very rude. Really has God syndrome.
