Ratings for Dr. John K.S. Chia
If I hadn't found Dr. Chia I don't know what I would have done. I have ME/CFS and he is the only doctor that understands and cares to a degree that you know you will be helped. He's been researching and treating ME/CFS for over 30 years. He's presented his work and findings to the CDC (who are not cooperative) and hold back the advances made in treatment. He fights hard for us and I thank him from my heart.
Finally, a doctor who understands Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and doesn't tell me it's all in my head. He spent a lot of time with me, was compassionate, and knowledgeable. I actually felt uplifted when I walked out of his office. I highly recommend Dr. Chia.
We waited months to see Dr Chia. He is well worth the wait. He personally took my daughter's medical history. He spent over and hour and a half discussing her history, diagnosis and treatment options. We have been to at least ten doctors that each treated my daughter for entirely separate illnesses. Dr. Chia was able to see the whole situation. I wish the staff could have better explained the six month wait for an appointment and delay in his office.
Dr Chia is not only v knowledgeable he is also one of the most caring drs I have been lucky enough to see. He listens v carefully and takes as much time as you need - our appt didn't end until after 7pm on a Frday even tho his office closed at 5pm! He has also followed up with me via the phone when he has been out of the office, including calling me on a weekend to check on how I was. I cannot say enough good thing about him. The staff you see in person are also wonderful, kind and helpful, but the ones on the phone can be a little less so - and you may have to persist with them - hence the 4 rating for staff.
Specializes in CFS and does enterovirus research. Best infectious disease doctor out there! Does very thorough testing and took two and a half hours time to listen to my whole medical history during the first visit! Extremely knowledgable and experienced. Goes above and beyond in working with the patient to find an individual treatment leading to maximum improvement.
THIS MAN IS BRILLIANT!!!!! I wish there was a higher rating on the "knowledge" scale above!! This Dr is kind, listens, teaches, and does not talk down to you. He also doesn't mind a patient who reads and researches. He's a real out of the box thinker and I can't say how grateful I am to have found him. I just started a treatment regime...have great hope and most importantly trust in this Dr/Researcher. Highly recommend him...he's worth the wait!
After being sick for almost 8 years with debilitating various and some extremely painful illnesses, Dr. John Chia of Torrance...ID Med... gave me my life back. FYI..I had been to UCLA, Cedar-Sinai's dr. pinmental, Mayo Clinic, and a shopping list of various other specialists...none of who helped me. Thank you Dr. Chia.
I have been seeing Dr. Chia for over 10 years now. He is a pioneer in his field. He is compassionate and caring. Dr. Chia knows what he his doing. I called one time other doctors in his field and ALL of them told me to stay with him. He is the best of the best. He has heart and works hard to find a treatment not only for ME/CFS/Fibro but also viruses Echovirsus, Coxsackie and CMV. He spends the time and answers all questions in detail until I understand. I believe in him and his work ethics. Thank you Dr. Chia.
