Spent several years as the DR. tried to figure out what was wrong with me. Thousands of dollars in copays, 3 courses of Vancomycin, 1 course of Dificid. Five days in the hospital. I have finally given up on him helping me (and I believe he has given up on me). I have been in absolute misery for over a year. When I call him, I only get his secretary. Never, ever get to talk to him. I guess he can't help everyone. It would just be nice if he didn't give up on me. So, now my family doctor is prescribing medications. I hope these help. Another $200. We'll see. I have NOwhere else to turn.

Doctor Chubineh is a very compassionate doctor. He takes his time with patients, and doesn't make you feel rushed. He is diligent and thorough. He doesn't make me feel like a "number" and seems to really care.

Dr. Chubineh is an amazing doctor. From my very first visit I was impressed because he told me he had spent the weekend reviewing all of my medical charts, that is pure dedication to his patients. He has performed a colonoscopy and two endoscopes and was extremely thorough and discovered many health issues which he immediately and accurately addressed. His office is warm and welcoming and his staff works together as a team. I have major health concerns and Dr. Chubineh has gone above and beyond reviewing my records, over the weekend on his own time, and providing a letter for my insurance expressing the importance and urgency of the treatment they have denied me, yet I clearly need. You do not find many doctors like him these days, he is a true gem, knowledgeable, professional, compassionate, and dedicated. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chubineh and staff for all of your GI needs! He is hands down the best in town, no ands, ifs, or buts about it! Thank you Dr. Chubineh and staff!!

My Aunt had recently underwent treatment for cancer and other related complications and needless to say, has been bounced around to an array of different medical specialists,technicians etc. The one physician that stood out during her ordeal was Dr. Chubineh. His compassion and the attention he gives to his patients goes above and beyond what can be expected from doctor's today. He is a caring individual who will spend the time to explain procedures and options to his patients. A true professional!

Dr. Chubineh is truly wonderful. I was visiting in Buffalo and had some concerns. He was able to schedule me within a couple of days of initially calling. He was very thorough with his questions to help me feel at ease.

Doc has really helped me out with my stomach. he always explains things to me in a way that I can understand, which hasn't always bee the case with my other Dr's. he has helped avoid unnecessary testing ordered by another GI and I feel much better than when I started seeing him.Thank you.

Doc has really helped me out with my stomach issues. Office got me in quick, scheduled my scope the same week, and treated my bacterial infection which has fixed my problems! Above all, he's really easy to talk to, I feel like I'm talking to a friend rather than my doctor.

I went to him over a year ago and left with no answers still continued to have all of these horrible stomach problems. My surgeon said I have ibs he said no. Take ab over the counter for your stomach. Finally I got my second opinion knowing something is WRONG! Well one visit to the new doctor and I have a fatty liver, ibs, and sibo. Also found hernia, cysts and polyps in my gallbladder.

I had what I considered to be an emergent situation and was scheduled for the following day. Dr Chubenih put my mind at ease within 5 minutes! I've worked in healthcare for 30 years and have a clear understanding of what makes a good doctor. I have no issues with going back to the office because what mattered most to me is the level of professionalism all of the staff possess. Thank you Dr. Chubineh!

I had initially chosen this Dr based on his high online reviews. I had another local gastro that is retiring and needed somebody new. I am happy to say that my expectations were met, as he definitely did live up to his reviews! I am happy that I have found a nice, young, gastro and plan to stay for years to come

I have had colitis for many years and have gone to several other GI's in the area. I haven't had very much success getting my symptoms under control. I was reluctant to try another GI, but after the recommendation of a friend of mine, I saw Dr. Chubineh for a consult. I had my scope done, and am now on treatment and feeling much better. Everything was done quickly and I am very happy I gave him a try. I would recommend anyone who has a GI issue, especially someone who has a difficult one!

I've been with Dr. C for the past 4 years now. He truly is a doctors dr. He has taken care of multiple other physicians who I know personally and we have all come to the same conclusion, we truly trust him with our care. I can't say enough positive things about him. If you are looking for professional, excellent care, he is your guy. Thanks so much Dr. C!

I was very impressed with the quality of care I received here. Scheduling an appointment was a breeze, the prep for the colonoscopy was not bad, and the procedure was painless. I'm glad I was referred here and will be back again for the next time I need a colonoscopy!
