Dr. Chin is a gre at listener and excellent doctor to diagnose tough neurological conditions. Dr. Chin examines thoroughly and puts the patient at ease which to me is a treatment by itself.

He is a great listener and appreciates a well informed patient. Our appointments are consultations. Because I live out of state, he makes tremendous efforts to stay in contact with me when I'm experience a flare up of my chronic condition.
