I have been here 3 times. Mom too the staff is good, except for one person. I was in pain hadto take next appointment very next day. So she rolls her eyes, bobs her head because "I was there yesterday". She decides to unsolicited advice that my insurance won't pay for this.

Not helpful. We visited doctor for hairloss, but doctor did not check anything other than asking few questions and takingblood samples. I paid copay and doctor asked to visit again and pay the copay amount. This is ridiculous

I was seen right away but the staff is terrible. Aside from the fact that my forms weren't completed the day of my physical they also weren't done 5 days later. I will not come back to this office. It's disorganized and unprofessional!

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. They charged 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.

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 find my 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 minutes was 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, the issue has not been resolved. I would not recommend Dr. Chinai's practice to anyone.
