Dr. Chinitz is an excellent doctor! He was friendly yet professional. He listened to what I had to say and understood the degree of my discomfort with my problem. He ordered an x-ray which I received in a timely manner. He saw me again as soon as the x-ray was sent. He explained the results of the x-ray and offered pain remedies. I was even able to inquire about an issue that was separate but related and he explained that also! I appreciated my time with him and would choose him again if needed. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends if they needed the services that he provides!!

Dr Chinitz is a skilled, knowledgeable, and caring clinician. He repaired a torn tibial anterior tendon which enabled me to walk normally! Ten weeks in a hard cast is a difficult challenge for a 75 year old patient; I followed all his instructionswe won!
