What People Say About Dr. Nizar Chahin, MD

I've seen 9 neurologists in 35 years with no definite diagnosis for a congenital muscle myopathy. In 30 minutes he had figured out more than any other doctor. He is quick, technical and to the point. If you're looking for someone who is brilliant in their field, this is your doctor. I saw him at OHSU where he works now. I've never seen someone better or more educated in muscle disease.

I was having progressive numbness symptoms in all my toes and my L hand. It was frightening. My PCP was of NO help, so on my own, I went to 1 spinal Orthopod from Hartford Hospital, 2 Neurosurgeons from St Francis and HH, as well a neurologist from a third hospital,. NONE allowed a proper or adequate time to review my complex case. All relied exclusively on the radiologist reports. AND EACH had a DIFFERENT OPINIONS that varied GREATLY. Then, almost by chance I ran into Dr Chahin (Con't next)
