I was treated very well by all the nursing staff. They were very helpful and cooperative when I asked for a special nurse to take my blood samples since I often have a difficult time getting a blood sample. Dr. Challinor is always very competent and tries to explain my condition and treatment so that I can understand it.

I'm so glad Dr. Challinor is my endocrinologist. I've had others in the past but none as wise and helpful as she. She is a credit to her field.

Total satisfaction with my Dr. Challinor.

DR. Challinor is a wonderful doctor. I wish she was in Greensburg, Pa. They need more doctors like her.

My experiences with Dr. Challinor were excellent.

November 09, 2016

I have been frustrated with the inability of Dr. Challinor to view my MRI results. This has happened now for the last three visits. This time I mailed the MRI scans to her office for them to have time to load and test them. Someone called a week in advance of my appt. and confirmed they were loaded and ready to go. Yet, when I was at the appt., she could not find or load them. Though she might not think her looking at the images with me is important, it is very important to me. She wants me to have the MRI done there, but that is not convenient since we live so far away. I understand she is not an IT person, and that's why I sent the images ahead of time... but she didn't go to anyone to help her help me. Very frustrating.
