I have worked with scientists for over thirty years and, during that time, developed a general ability to ascertain when a person was knowledgeable and competent. In my opinion, Dr. Chintalapudi is without a doubt a highly competent and very capable doctor. Upon my first visit, he used detailed yet completely understandable language to describe my situation. He also answered my questions in an intelligent, professional, and pleasant manner without over-simplifying or being condescending. He even made a hand-drawn sketch to make sure I fully understood what he was describing. Dr. Chintalapudi was impressive to me from the start and I think others will find him to be an excellent neurologist.

Dr Chintalapudi is an excellent physician! He spent the time needed to look at my entire health history to understand the potential cause of my headaches. Very few doctors these days take the time with patients to truly understand the full picture and come to a proper diagnosis. Dr Chintalapudi and his entire office are caring and are very focused on patient care.

Dr.Chin is one of the best physicians I’ve ever encountered. I was looking for a doctor who would actually treat the root cause of my illness instead of symptoms. Dr. Chin was able to diagnose my issues in a very short amount of time and gave solutions to fix it. He is very professional, patient, and thorough. His office staff is friendly, caring and easy to deal with. I highly recommend Dr.Chin and his practice.

Dr Chin and support staff are very pleasant to deal with. Dr Chin takes time to explain the prognosis and treatment in common understandable terms, especially non-medically inclined person like me. I found Dr Chin to be very patient and a good listener. His support staff both in the sleep lab and in office are very pleasant to deal. I highly recommend his practice.
