Self righteous and mean as a snake. Will deny you any pain meds if you make the mistake of admitting marijuana use. I'm on the verge of ending my life to make the pain stop and he doesn't care a bit.

Nice enough guy. Obviously smart, but that does not make a doctor special. They’re all smart. He does NOT listen. Much like another reviewer stated, he asks a question and doesn’t let you answer before he asks the next question. Also, when I did manage to get an answer out, he still did not actually listen to what I was saying. Found him to be lacking in basic communication skills. Disappointing. I was referred to him by my surgeon. I declined to go back after two visits. I found seeing him to be a net negative, so I stopped going to him and just let my physical therapist and surgeon handle it.

I saw Dr. Chin today and I felt like I was taking up his valuable time. He would ask me a question and then would not let me answer the question before asking another. I was in pain when I arrived and am still in pain.

Dr. Chin in Rome, Ga took care of all my issues after seeing SEVEN doctors to no avail. He took care of proper referrals, MRI, rehab, and pain. I just returned from SC and could not establish primary. Tara helped me for days obtaining the proper records. I have a 90 yr. old relative who adores them also!

I have been seeing Dr. Chin for several years now for pain management for a bulging disc in my back and also hip pain. He is very professional and compared to other pain management doctors in the area, very reasonably priced. I feel like I am with family when I go to this office, the staff is so friendly and welcoming. I have also seen his nurse practioner, Kristen Oliver and she is also very knowledgeable and friendly.

I will never return to this practice. It would seem that what they are concerned with is how much money they will make off of the patient and not providing the medical care that is needed. If one is happy discussing one's condition and issues with a nurse practitioner rather than a doctor then this is the practice you need to go to. I found his staff to be rude and if one already knows the answer to questions then that is what needs to be asked.

Dr. Chin is one of the best physicians I have been fortunate enough to have treatment through. He is very intelligent and has impressive knowledge of a vast array of medical issues. Most importantly, he listened to me, didn't order unnecessary tests, didn't shove drugs at me, and helped me find a general physician. I have more issues than Vogue without all the pretty ads, and he helped me. Unfortunately, I am not currently seeing him, that's due to loss of insurance and financial reasons only.

Meeting and being treated by Dr. Chin and his caring staff was a wonderful experience in with an uncomfortable ailment. He was so courteous, informative throughout the exam and eventual procedure. I will NEVER go anywhere else and advise my friends to try this fabulous place. They do not overbook as they know you are in pain when you get there. You are a person, not a number on a file folder. The treatment was incredible. Try them, you will not regret it, Thank you SO much. ;
