Professional, ethical, skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate. In my experience of the medical profession today, this is a very rare trait as most medical doctors patients are not their priority but billing time. Dr. Chino is very pro-active not reactive and he is more concerned about his patients welfare and their family than collecting co-pays. He will tell you honestly what is going on, your options, work with you on a plan and get things moving. I have/will recommend him.

Dr.Chino basically saved my life by successfully removing the cancer I had in my lung. He is very respected by the hospital staff that I came in contact with during this time in X-ray and imaging, other physicians, and the nursing staff. I was told often by them that he wants everything done very specifically his way but if they need an operation he is the doctor they would choose. Also his office staff is wonderful professional and very friendly. They make everyone feel special!
