Dr. Chiorean & his staff are excellent. I have felt very confident for the first time in the management of my Crohn´s Disease under his care. Highly recommendable.
He was very thorough(?) explaining the meds that are good for me and the changes that need to be made.
Excellent care by Dr. Chiorean... professional and very knowledgeable... sympathetic to my medical condition... could improve his sense of humor... just kidding... he is great!! #9. Off the chart.
Really great doctor. After feeling really s_____ for 5+ months Dr. Chiorean knew EXACTLY what I had and how to treat it after only 10 minutes.
Provider came highly recommended from patients and providers from other local hospitals.
Dr Chiorian is very good in what he does
Very caring and professional.
Dr. Chiorean gives as much time as needed, as though you (the patient) are the only one who is taking his time that day. I have recommended - given his name - to several friends.
Dr. Chiorean helps me feel confident in my treatment and takes time to answer my questions.
Really enjoy my time with Dr. Chiorion.
Dr. Chiorean was wonderful. He explained my condition very clearly so I could understand. I´ll be having to come back in 6 months and am very calm knowing I have such a fine doctor.
Dr. Chiorean is one of the best doctors I´ve worked with. He sits down when he comes into the room, asks me how I am, inquires about my family, and makes eye contact with me. In the past I´ve struggled to understand some of his answers, because they were seemingly contradictory (not an issue of medicine speak), but for the past few visits we´ve had great conversations. His bedside manner is pretty much amazing. I also appreciate the extra length lengths he goes through in communicating with my other doctors, and they have expressed to me how impressed they are with his communication and notes.
Can´t speak highly enough of Dr. Chiorean. So glad to have found him!
While speaking with Dr. Chlorean it was quite evident that he either remembered me or had studied my case prior to my appointment. A very good sign!
The doctor was very friendly and concerned that I understand the procedure I have been referred for and the likely outcomes of my case.
I have recommended to friends that if they want a 2nd opinion or help, this would be a good dr & facility to go to outside of our area.
I recommend this office to many.
We were very impressed with the care at Virginia Mason & the thoroughness & concern of Dr. Chiorean. Also liked the communication with my primary care dr.
