I feel fortunate to have *Dr. Chiorean as my physician. I trust him completely.
  Overall Patient Rating - September 2020
He listened to me. He took into consideration what I said and agreed with my findings. He didn't make me feel like I was clueless.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
I felt he did not listen to my needs. I felt he made a pre-determined decision about my symptoms since I take anxiety medication. My issues are still reoccurring. Was not satisfied at all with the visit.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
I have the highest regard for Dr. Chiroean-he listens completely & takes time to cover any of my concerns. He is a wonderful & caring doctor.

*Dr. Chlorean is by far the best GI doctor I have had in my many - (30+) years of having Chrohn's Disease. I regret not finding him sooner.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2020
He always listens, explains things well and gives options & recommendations but ultimately leave decisions up to me. But keeps me well informed.
  Overall Patient Rating - May 2020
I was planning on just renewing a prescription without much discussion, but the doctor took the time to explain steps I should take to alleviate this problem.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
The appointment was very rushed, I didn't get to ask very many questions and the explanations were quick and not explained well enough to help me understand my diagnosis. The suggestions were also mentioned quickly and without detail or an in depth discussion of what would be involved, where I would go for treatment, etc. I had to figure a lot out on my own on the internet and by asking my primary care provider for help.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
*Dr. Chiorean is an excellent care provider.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
So fortunate to have *Dr. Chiorean!
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
My usual gastroenterologist was on sabbatical, but Dr. Chiorian (sp?) seemed well acquainted with my issues. While he explained some things, I learned some valuable descriptors of my symptoms...
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2020
*Dr. Chiorean has been wonderful. He's funny, he listens, he doesn't overreact, he's prepared, & he offers options. Good for him!
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2020
Very clear English language, he respects my religion and culture. He helped me to make a good decision regarding my health.
