My wife and myself have seen Ihm because of growing cataract and need surgery. We are very satisfied as he explained everything in full details. The only we would have expected that he would have advised us On the prescription that there are Generic or alternative eyedrops. The one he prescribed are brand names and our copay Was very high. Also all staff at the office have been very friendly and helpful . We can highly recommend this Doctor for any eye problem.

My 4 year old son had eye abrasion and was in extreme pain. Upon arriving in the office Dr. Chinichian tried to open his eye but y son was not having it. He screamed and struggled. It was painful for me as a mother to see him in pain and hold him down. Dr. Chinichian was so patient and caring. He must have Children, because he did great with him. I appreciated his ability to do his job with professionalism and compassion. I would highly recommend him!!!!!

My wife suddenly developed a problem with her vision, and we are new in town. We were recommended to Dr. Chinichian, who put her into his schedule that day at 4:10 pm on a Friday afternoon. His office staff were extremely friendly, supportive, and professional when we arrived; we were seen and examined almost immediately by Dr. C, who was also friendly, accommodating, professional, and comprehensive. He found the problem, reassured us, and prescribed treatments. He was very patient and helpful.

I had cataract surgery, with implants to correct my vision. Dr. Chinichian explained the procedure to me. It made my decision making so easy. I have worn glasses my entire life. Now I only wear reading glasses when on my computer, cell or anything close up. My astigmatism is gone. If I could have afforded the multi focal lens, I would have ditched even the readers. I am very pleased with my results. Dr Chinichian followed me through the whole procedure. I cannot thank him enough. Thanks Dr C.

I liked this guy immediately and then my experience with him confirmed my intuition. Thorough, kind, explains what he's doing and what he's thinking. Also explored lots of options with me before leaping right to surgery.

I would highly recommend Dr. Chinichian! I experienced an eye injury on a Sunday and he scheduled me as his first patient the next morning. Dr. Chinichian was kind and easy to speak with, he really took the time to explain my injury and what to expect. He encourages me to ask questions and I've never felt rushed. The staff is fantastic, the office is beautiful, I couldn't ask for a better experience.
