Dr. Chin is always courteous and listens to me, then prescribes treatment. I have used him for several orthopedic problems and have found the staff at both Sterling Ridge locations to be both knowledgeable and professional in their patient care.

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

This was my initial visit, and ItI found Dr. Chin and his staff members to be knowledgeable, personable and efficient. Of utmost importance to me was Dr. Chin's attentiveness to my issue. He took time to listen and didn't rush through my appointment. It was also important that he made what I believed to be sound decisions regarding treatment -- no sense of running up a bill with unnecessary treatments.
