A pain doctor who only does procedures. No pain meds. He needs to leave the field.

Made it very clear to us that he is more interested whether gets paid by insurance companies for prescribing pain drugs than helping the patient. Very quick in trying to push my husband out of his office. We’ve Never seen nor heard anything like this before in having interacted with many drs over 20+ yrs. . Did not want to treat my husband’s fibromyalgia and sent him elsewhere. This individual has no empathy, had very discouraging approach during the consultation and was quick trying end the consultation. Very very uncomfortable feeling with this doctor. Also, my husband was treated by him through Scott and White clinic before and then he just disappeared, then we found he founded his Excelsior clinic where he does not prescribe pain killers. Imagine that, a pain doctor… and on top telling you that he does not get paid well by insurance so he won’t treat you. The bar is getting lower each year.

The pain came to me without any injury that I can recall. After visited my PCP and had sonogram done. The sonogram did not show any tumor at the pain spot. Then, I visited Dr. Chin for pain treatment. Dr. Chin asked me about my health history and told me that the pain could be related to my another chronicle disease. Then he prescribed medication to reduce the pain. Up to date, my pain is alleviated. I am impressed that Dr. Chin identified the cause of the pain that I had not thought.

Dr. J. Chin caused me much pain during a needle injection into my spine. Also, his failure to listen to me and carefully review my medical history caused me many years of much suffering and pain from chronic pancreatitis. He said I had a stomach ache which he would not treat as a true pain compliant as he suspected i was a drug seeker.
