Dr. Chin is awesome. I have been experiencing knee pain for quite a while due to a sports injury. We finally came to the decision point to have knee replacement to correct the problem. Dr. Chin did an amazing job with my knee and I am on the road to recovery and my active lifestyle again. The staff at Sterling Ridge is extremely friendly and courteous and appointments have been easy to get.

Dr. Chin is excellent. I am 57 years old and compete in triathlons, so I am usually managing my aches and pains. Dr. Chin takes the time to listen to all that I have to say, and then fully explains his diagnosis and recommended treatment. He is also very responsive to questions. I have never had him rush me through an appointment or rush out to see the next patient. I highly recommend him.

I recently took a painful second “body part” to Dr.Chin for a diagnosis. The first one, my left knee, had been unsatisfactorily treated in Dallas. By following Dr.Chin’s treatment plan, my damaged and painful knee healed without surgery. I have already recommended my husband to Dr. Chin and have decided that wherever Dr.Chin practices, my bones will follow!

Dr. Chin is by far the greatest doctor I have ever had. He is very calm, intelligent and takes time to get to know you in order to provide the best orthopeadic care for your needs. He listens, answers questions and truly makes you feel comfortable. Dr. Chin performed my arthroscopic hip surgery and I have been in no pain ever since. He is an expert!

Dr. Chin quickly identified my problem. The many other doctors (about six) had focused their concern on my back pain. The problem really is a nerve problem. We will work with Dr. Howe to plan future options.

I was referred to Dr. Chin by primary care Physician for a problem with my knee and the outer part of my lower leg. Dr. Chin provided a diagnosis and treatment plan for me that was a bit different from what I went in thinking and his diagnosis was fully explained to me and I believe the treatment plan will correct my problem. I feel fortunate to have been referred to Dr Chin

I have had 3 joint replacements by Dr. Chin. Considered a knee replacement, but opted out. Dr. Chin has the ability to lead his patients to their treatment decisions. Ultimately, I chose PT and a knee brace. It helped quite well, but to make more progress on my arthritis, he recommended pain management. Excited about that. He is a "thinker" and gets to the bottom of his patients' problems. Brilliant, caring and humble. I am forever grateful to him.

Dr. Chin is great. He sat with me before my surgery to show me visually what procedure he was going to do and explained what to expect. I felt relaxed and knew I was in good hands. Thanks, Dr. Chin
