Dr. Chinichian's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chinichian "Dr. Chinichian received his undergraduate education at the University of California, Irvine and finished medical school at Western University in Pomona, California. His arduous goal to become an ophthalmologist was achieved with the successful completion of his residency at the county hospital, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in San Bernardino, where he was rigorously trained to address many complex and rare eye diseases. During Dr. Chinichian's residency, he volunteered with an organization that took monthly trips to the town of La Misión in Baja California. In that time, he contributed to the donation of glasses, medicine, and performed minor procedures as a service for those in need. He was also nominated with the honor of being named Chief Resident amongst his peers. Dr. Chinichian combines his personal interest in technology with ophthalmology by constantly seeking advanced technologies and equipment to provide premier quality eye care for his patients. Dr. Chinichian specializes in comprehensive ophthalmology and is currently licensed to practice in the states of Nevada and California. He is an active member of the American Osteopathic Association, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the American Osteopathic Colleges of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. Patients have described Dr. Chinichian as friendly, compassionate and with a pleasant bedside manner. Dr. Chinichian is fluent in Spanish and Farsi (Persian).
