My 14 year old had an appointment today for her yearly physical. she was told that she was over weight by the Dr. My child is 5 ft 2" and weights 114 lbs that ratio is normal and certainly not over weight. To tell a teenage girl she is over weight when she is not is inappropriate and can lead to serious problems in the future.

Dr. Chinchilla was both of our children’s pediatrician. Recently my son was urinating a significant amount of blood. We took him in and samples were drawn and sent in. No other actions were conducted or recommended. After 2 weeks with no call we called to be told that nothing was wrong. It happened again. My doctor discovered both kidneys packed with kidney stones and said it was handled grossly innappropriatly. Shameful. Disinterested is not a strong enough description of the situation.

I went to Dr. Chinchilla for four or five years and never had a great experience. The appointments were not thorough, rushed, and always unpleasant. I also, always felt that she was skeptical of me whenever I brought up health issues which seemed an odd attitude to have as a doctor. Additionally, the receptionists were also rude at times with the exception of Chinchilla's son (who worked there last I went). On the bright side, the facility was very clean.
