The care provide,literally,and definitely saved my life. I have never had a doctor so concerned about her patients. she not only diagnosed my problem (where others did not) but has taken me to almost full recovery

August 11, 2016

Dr. Challinor was able to provide detailed workings of glucose and prednisone in the body and how to better utilize/timing/reduction of my meds.

August 03, 2016

Dr. Challinor is the best specialist with which I have ever worked. Her expertise and demeanor is second to no one. my only regret is that she is not my primary care physician. I consider Dr. C as a close friend.

July 27, 2016

She was 45 minutes late to my appointment and I was told she wasn't even in the office yet.

July 20, 2016

Always have to wait more than 15 mins after my scheduled appointment

July 19, 2016

all staff very friendly, made me comfortable to be there.

July 12, 2016

Although Dr. Challinor knows what she is doing and is an expert in her field of education, she does not know how to listen to her patient, especially when it is a rare disease that is still being learned about. We (those with my disease) know by networking with one another, that we have co-morbidities and issues that are not textbook written or even known by a lot of doctors. Are job is to teach doctors about our disease and document problems before and AFTER any treatment(s) in order to help those in the future. She needs to be a lot more sensitive to these issues and learn to listen and believe these issues.

Dr Challinor is an excellent, wonderful, caring physician

June 23, 2016

I feel fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Chalinoor. I also was very impressed with professionalism of the nurse (sorry, don't recall his name, although he did introduce himself to me.)
