Dr. Challinor is a stellar clinical doctor ... she is very knowledgeable about research in her field and applies her knowledge for her patients, always staying abreast of new studies. I keep telling her she needs to write a book to help the layman understand their options as an endocrine patient with x,y or z condition ... she has a very amenable bedside manner, has kind eyes, a nice laugh, and approaches treatment in a very practical, consider-able manner, regarding her patient's opinions and overall well-being.

DR Challinor is not my main doctor, that would be Dr D Lincoln. She is my endo specialist. I am comfortable with her expertise and understanding of my medical condition to successfully manage it.
