I don’t have complaints against the doctor, besides the fact he prescribed antibiotics that didn’t help, but the receptionists are either completely incompetent in working with insurance in the best case or are dishonest in the worst. Theycharged me a deductible way over the amount allowed by Cigna, and moreover is covered by my HRA. After complaining with Cigna they returned just part of the sum.

Staff is always nice. Dr. Chinai saw me right away even though I was (very) early for my appointment. Was in and out of the doctor's office and was feeling better the very next day.

Dr Chinai is great, but I would not recommend going to his office if you need to be seen for anything other than a simple cold. I had blood work done and not only does the practice say they can’t findmy blood work (when I can see it on labcorps patient portal), but they said that even if I had a question, they wouldn’t be able to answer over the phone, and I was required to come in for a visit (more money for them).

Went for my regular annual medical check-up with fully covered by my Health Insurance. Ever since, I have been getting bills from them for the blood tests although my insurance covers it. Wouldn't go here again.

I selected this doctor due to its convenient location but will not go back and would not recommend this doctor. My appointment was for an annual checkup. I spent approximately 45 minutes at the office, of which only about 5 minuteswas face time with the doctor. He asked a handful of basic questions (~6 or 7) which were already covered by the patient in-take form I had to fill out. He performed a few basic assessments (eg. breathe in/breathe out), and then went directly to ordering a suite of blood tests. Throughout the 5 minutes, the doctor didn't comment on my health or even ask if I had any specific concerns/questions. For an annual physical appointment, I expected more than 5 minutes with the doctor. Instead, I was told the appointment was over after the blood work was done and to follow up afterwards about the results of the blood test.

Front office is terrible - unorganized and lack professionalism. They do not answer phones, do not send medical paperwork on time, are rude and short with you in person. Terrible experience - save yourself time and go to a doctor's office that actually cares about helping people.

We went for our annual preventative care which is covered by insurance but ended up receiving a bill which we shouldn't have, although insurance had paid the doctor's office. In spite of several phone calls and visits to the practice, theissue has not been resolved. I would not recommend Dr. Chinai's practice to anyone.

I had an awful experience in this facility. I went there for annual check up and just explained my previous conditions to the Doctor so he can include any necessary test in the annual check up. I have already been visitingspecialists for other conditions which I have and didn't expect/get any treatment for those. I booked the appointment under Annual physical and was quite explicit about that. The office has charged me a whooping amount for new patient visit and have refused to take it back. Apart from this, they recommended me to visit Physical Therapist who was just opening their practice in the facility. I confirmed with the office that this is just a consultation and if there would be any additional charges. The office confirmed that there are no charges for consultation. I have been charged gigantic amount for this unnecessary consultation and this physical therapy practice is out of network for me. How did they fail to inform me about this earlier and were unable to bring it up when I called to confirm about the charges. I have been unable to reach their billing department constantly and have raised the issue with my Health care provider. The only aim for this practice seems to be charging unnecessary amount and loot the people visiting the facility. I would never recommend anyone to visit this facility.
