Here are just some of the fantastic reviews Dr Chin has received from patients here at One Hatfield Hospital. You can read more feedback at the independent review site I Want Great Care – here.

 

Dr Chin instantly made my 8 year old son feel comfortable and relaxed. He was funny, friendly and warm. He spent a long time with us in our consultation to get to the bottom of the issue. Judging from the clinic letter, Dr Chin obviously genuinely listened.. a very impressive skill! I would absolutely 100% recommend Dr Chin.

 

Excellent doctor who took into consideration all the lifestyle aspects of the baby.

 

Dr Chin was fantastic with our little boy, he put him at ease and had him laughing very quickly. He spent a considerable amount of time with us and made any examinations seem like a fun game for our son. He listened to everything my husband and I said and answered all of our questions. We felt so reassured by Dr Chin’s thoroughness and it was evident that he always has the best interests of the child at heart. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, compassionate peadiatrician, we would highly recommend him.
