I would NOT use this man! He should NOT be practicing. Very rude, uncaring, doesn't want to get involved in patient care nor treatment. He only half way listens and treats. Also Chin REFUSES to accept diagnosis from other doctors. HORRIBLE! HORRIBLE is the only word that describes treatment and care from this man. Will not go back.

I disagree with that patients that are giving bad references. I've been with him for a very long time. I haven't had anymore seizures in years. His has a lot of patience.

24 Nov. The office knew we were cash only when we came in. Dr said we would get a letter of guardianship "next week." No letter, I waited another week after Thanksgiving to called back. Nothing in dads records about the letter and they would be closed the rest of the week on 28,29&30 Nov. They would pass info to secretary. No call. Called back today 8 Dec. Now say they wont send paperwork until bill is paid. Would have paid that day! Havent gotten bill! Needed letter 2 weeks ago for Soc Sec off

I would highly recommend Dr. Chin. It is a learning experience with him. He doesn't speak much, but when he does it is worth hearing. He was the only doctor in my search for a diagnosis that wouldn't stop testing. He is genuinely caring in his quite way. I appreciate him so much.

This neurologist basically offeres no help. Keep getting the feeling he buddies off of what other neurologist do. Unwilling to even try different medications. Does not listen to the patients concern. A complete waste of time. I probably would not even take my dog here to be treated.

Dr. Chin should not be practicing with older patients. He is uncaring and inconsiderate. To say to an older person, you are in your 80's and medicine doesn't work for you - just live with it He treats pain as though it doesn't matter and is not even willing to TRY anything new. He is NOT a physician who should even be caring for a dog. I hope he finds a better doctor when he is in pain... then again, no I don't.

He spent a lot of time understanding the background and history of our oldest son before starting his diagnosis. he was recommended by several doctors we know and he diagnosed our problem correctly and relatives quick after seeing other Neurologists.
