I went to see Dr. Chaychi referred by my pcp for diabetes and thyroid management. She is very knowledgable and extremely smart. She demonstrated outstanding knowledge in the field of diabetes and since she has been the head of the clinical research team at her practice for more than a decade now she has lots of hands on patient experience. Dr. Leila Chaychi was able to find the right treatment plan and the right medication for me. She discontinued more than 80% of my medications and gave me only two medications that worked perfectly for me. I lost 35 lbs in 4 months and my A1C dropped from 11 % to 6.0%. She uses cutting edge technology to help her patients and spends a lot of time to explain every single diagnostic tool or medical treatment. Her staff and nurses are very kind and responsible. I certainly recommend her to anyone who is seeking outstanding care.

Dr. Chaychi is very knowledgeable and up to date . She knows her game and is very smart. She is very kind and passionate. Her philosophy is not only to help with treatment but connect the dots and find the cause. I have seen her for a few years now and she never stops in providing the best care. I went to see her referred by my pcp for osteoporosis and she found my adrenal gland was overly working. I have been under her outstanding care for the past 3 years and I could not be happier. I saw three Drs previously and no one could diagnose my condition. The first visit when I went to see her she explained what are the possible causes of bone disease in my age group, she ran some tests and she diagnosed me. Her new office is nice and spacious. Her staff are kind and caring. This is the only Dr. and office that I would recommend in the Bay Area if you want an excellent care.

Dr. Chaychi is one of the kindest, most understanding Doctor we have ever met, She has been open when we have been hesitant. She has always made herself available, even when inconvenient to her own schedule. She is by far the best doctor we have ever known. I cannot praise her or recommend her enough--she is one of the most wonderful and amazing people I have ever met and I feel privileged to be a client.

When my endocrinologist retired, I inherited Dr. Leyla Chaychi. I saw her for routine visits like annual blood-work without incident. I later developed a chronic condition. At the time of my diagnosis, Dr. Chaychi told me that there was a new breakthrough drug. She rattled through all its pro’s at break neck speed, barely answering all my questions. She did not disclose important information about it—including the fact that it had been FDA-approved two months ago to the day, probably making me one of (if not the first) of her patients to try it. Having sung the drug’s praises, Dr. Chaychi and her office then did very little to help me obtain it. The worst part of all of this is that Dr. Chaychi never bothered to follow up and ensure that I received the treatment she herself believed I needed, suggesting that she did not ultimately care about my recovery. I sought help elsewhere, and highly recommend you save yourself a lot of time and trouble and do the same.

Dr. Chaychi is amazing. She has been my Dr for more than a year now. She has addressed all my issues point by point. I was referred to her for my high sugars. Not only she helped me to get my blood sugars under control in a very short period of time, she also looked at my bones and calcium metabolism. She diagnosed me with a condition that has made me to loose bone and now I am being treated for it. Her staff are very respective and always acomodating. I wish we had more of you Dr. Chaychi.

My mom has been a patient of dr. Chaychi for several years but has had many issues controlling her diabetes recently. I got involved and found out a device was inquired on to assist my mom over 9 months ago but was never followed up on. I interceded but found her staff rude, unresponsive & unapologetic. If I had not interjected on my moms behalf, nothing was done. I had to still fight them to provide the vendor with the minimal information needed. If you love someone, DO NOT send them to this dr
