Dr. Chin did not properly review my medical records or listen to my case history. I scheduled an appointment with him for a second opinion on a chronic injury, for which I had a minor surgery three months prior, and which was not showing significant improvement. He did not display empathy or consideration about the lifestyle impact of this extended healing period and did not provide a clear explanation of what could be causing my continued pain. He stated that healing from a minor surgery could take up to a year, and did not provide any specific advice on how to optimize my recovery period other than recommending I don't try to run a marathon, but I'm not a runner - my injury was caused and aggravated by rock climbing, so the comment felt flippant. We did not discuss my specific activities/lifestyle or how they were impacted by this condition, or how they could be contributing to the healing period. I had previously been to multiple specialists to diagnose my condition, and based on an MRI a certain condition was ruled out. [...]This discussion felt disrespectful, not appropriate given my case history, and I felt from Dr. Chin a level of impatience as though my concern was unwarranted. I understand that healing is a slow process, but he was not able to give any explanations for what was contributing to this delayed recovery. He told me to wait another few months and if Iwas still experiencing pain, to come back and schedule a more invasive surgery, without any recommendation of specific behavioral changes or additional imaging (eg a followup MRI). Very disappointed and will not be returning; I was told that Husky Sports Medicine is experienced in dealing with more complicated sports injuries and would focus on the importance of getting athletes back to their activities as safely and quickly as possible.
