She has little time for, nor interest in, her patients. She is dismissive, and seems annoyed if you ask her a question. She wants to get you out of her office as soon as is possible. If you care about your health and want a physician that does as well, avoid Dr. Chinen.

If you want an endocrinologist that doesn’t listen and is dismissive then Dr. Chinen is the doctor for you. I went in and not only did she make me feel horrible about myself and basically told me that there’s nothing she can do. After much begging she ordered one test, probably to shut me up, and didn’t even brother to call me with the results. Found out my results from DLS website and those results show irregularities and are very high. But not like she’ll help me, she’s too busy making excuses on why I’m feeling the way I feel. I thought being a doctor was about helping people, she must of not got that memo and is a doctor just for the acolytes.

I was 14 minutes late to my appointment and had to wait 1.5 hours to be seen because the doctor saw all the other patients first. How could you let someone sit in the waiting room for 1.5 hours when you have 15 minute appointments that you could take me into and then bump everyone else 15 minutes. People would be ok with waiting for 15 minutes instead of making one person wait for one hour and a half when I'm only 14 minutes late. Terrible scheduling.

I always feel like I am rushed through my appointments, I've spent no more than 10 minutes in her presence at every appointment and I've seen Dr.Chinen at least 5 times within the last 2 2/12 years. I was especially disappointed at my last appt. where she seemed just way too busy to spend time more than 5 minutes listening to my needs and addressing them. Sorry to say, I don't feel you can get quality care and real compassion with this doctor.
