Dr. Chaiban is amazing and really listens to what I have to say. She's very prompt and never rushes. Her staff is always pleasant.

May 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I have found the practice of Dr. Chaiban to be very efficiently run. I never have to spend more than a few minutes in the waiting room. The nurse that checks me in is very professional, yet also very personable. The Dr. always takes her time, asks me lots of questions, listens to my concerns, and explains carefully all the decisions she makes regarding my health care. Dr. Chaiban never hesitates to call me when she is concerned about test results. I expressed some concerns using the portal messaging service and was given advice before 24 hours had passed. I even got a call from her office about a library book I had left there. I would recommend her practice to anyone needing the care of an endocrinologist.

May 2, 2019 7:00 PM

very pleasant, concerned, very patience, good listener.

March 4, 2019 6:00 PM

This was my 1st time visiting this provider's office. Everyone was very welcoming. Provider was easy to talk to, and listened to my all concerns and issue. She was very helpful in explaining everything to me. My experience here was very comforting. I am happy that I chose this provider for my care. I would definitely recommend her to friends & family.

March 2, 2019 6:00 PM

February 16, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Chibion, is a very warm sensitive doctor and always listens to her patients recommended 100%...

February 14, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Chaiban is now my endocrinologist - replacing the previous doctor who didn't assist me with the issue of my drug plan refusing to pay for Janumet. Dr. Chaiban is wonderful - kind & sincerely concerned about my issues with type 2 diabetes.

February 12, 2019 6:00 PM

I had a wonderful experience and enjoy seeing this provider.

February 7, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Chaiban treats me with good physician care. She makes coming to "see" her a pleasant experience. She provides answers & information awareness about my condition.

February 7, 2019 6:00 PM

This was the first time I saw Dr. Chaiban - I was not happy with my previous dr. (of 14 yrs) I like Dr. Chaiban a lot, my niece recommended her, said she's very nice, and listens to her patients, and she was absolutely right -

December 19, 2018 6:00 PM

November 19, 2018 6:00 PM

great doctor.....actually called me herself with test results.

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

When I was waiting to check-in, there was a line & 4 people behind desks. Three of them were taking care of others, the 4th appeared to be attending to other work. By the time it was my turn, 2/3 stepped away & the 3rd may have been completing work but I was still standing there for a few minutes & was not addressed w/"someone will be with you in minute". I stood there for another minute wondering if I was in the right place & had to ask just to get their attention. They took care of the 5 people in front of me promptly but I'm wondering why that stopped by the time they got to me.

November 14, 2018 6:00 PM

I've been a diabetic for 15 years in those years I have 5 different doctors due to insurance changes, moving, etc. Dr. Chaiban has been the only doc to treat me as a person with diabetes all the other docs were it's my fault for being overweight. Not doing enough exc. eating the wrong foods, so on and because of her care and understanding and working with different meds this is the first time my sugar levels are controlled. Thank you

August 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Experience went well. All questions answered.

August 19, 2018 7:00 PM

My original appointment was cancelled and scheduled for the next day. They failed to tell me the doctor would not be in the same office. On the day of my visit, I went to the scheduled office to find the doctor was at another location. Therefore, I had to visit two offices to see the doctor.

August 11, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr chaiban is a very knowledgable doctor who truly cares about her patients. My medical case is quiet unusual and we had frequent email conversations regarding it and how to proceed. I was amazed how quickly she got back to me and how she discussed things with me almost like her equal , not just a patient as I have some medical knowledge. in the end though, I trusted her to make the decision. I have recommended her yo several of my friends. She is one of the best doctors I have ever met. Because my medical case is so rare and bizzare, she did a lot of research for me in her spare time which impressed me and truly made me appreciate her dedication as a doctor.

August 5, 2018 7:00 PM

The provider took her time to listen to my health concerns, and put me on a plan to maintain good health.

July 22, 2018 7:00 PM

I met Dr. Chaiban when I was hospitalized at Christ. I was impressed with her bed side manner & the time she spent with me. This visit was a follow up visit. I was very impressed once again with her explanations & answers to all my questions.

July 22, 2018 7:00 PM
