This doctor never asked about my symptoms or my thoughts re the many invasive procedures he “decreed upon me”. When I asked clarification questions he took a patronizing tone. When I asked about possibly waiting 3 months and monitoring my status in that time, he became frustrated and abruptly ended the visit. He refused to enter into any dialogue with me. He also began the visit stating many negative things about my primary doctor’s notes which was unprofessional, and upsetting.

After a phone consult prior to a procedure - was dismayed by the tone of voice and rude demeanor - canceled procedure after another health professional told me if the consult was unsatisfactory - would you want him to the procedure?? Obvious answer:: NO. Also, was informed by same professional if a complication took place during the procedure another Dr. would highly unlikely accept me as a patient. Found another MORE qualified urologist that I feel more comfortable seeing .

The office staff stinks. Stupid and incompetent. I tried 3 times to get an appt, and they messed it up every time. I guess they want me to go elsewhere.

I was sent to Dr. Chinn after a night in the Straub ER. I could not urinate. I found Dr. Chinn to be extremely competent. He even diagnosed another condition I was suffering from before I could ask him what it was. I whole heartily would recommend Dr. Chinn to anyone seek a urologist.

Although competent, Dr. Chinn has the worst bedside manner of any doctor I've ever encountered. After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, my wife and I had numerous questions. He told us that he would not answer any questions, and handed us a brief pamphlet from drug-maker Astra Zeneca. When his name comes up at our support group, everyone groans. If you are looking for an empathetic physician who is eager to help you understand what is happening within your body, Dr. Chinn is not for you.

Dr Stephen Chen performed a pileloplasty surgery on me 15 years ago and I was completely satisfied with his professional manner and expertise knowledge. He is truly one of Hawaiis finest doctors in Urology, and I'm very thankful that I was able to have him perform my surgery to correct my problem years ago. He also showed me patience and concern about my medical situation, and was very thorough in what he intended to do. If I had to do this again, I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you Dr Chen!

Been my doctor for about 8 years: all business, bedside manner wasn't user friendly. I just saw him, he's a changed man. Happy, positive ,receptive , my kind of doctor. Top of the line surgeon, he did me, an now a man I can talk to who makes me feel at ease. Well done Doctor Chinn
