Ratings for Dr. Stephen Chia
I was lucky enought to have Dr. Chia as my oncologist for breast cancer. He was extremely knowledgeable in the many forms of cancer and treatments available, as well as compassionate to the effects various treatments would have. I thank him for his kindness and professionalism.
This Doctor’s complete lack of compassion, empathy and kindness as well as his complete unwillingness to answer my questions or address my concerns meant that my first visit with him was also my last. He was rude, abrupt and clearly had no interest in having a discussion. He wanted to tell me what was going to happen and get out of the examing room as fast as possible. We left his office feeling far worse that we did going in. Whatever happened to “First do no harm”?
Dr. Chia is an excellent medical oncologist, full of knowledge, expertise, and experience. He is dedicated and committed to treating his patients and saving their lives, and advancing cancer care, as shown through his curiosity and interest in the research that he does. I feel that he gives me individualized treatment based on my pathology and information he's got, and that he does his best to help to treat my cancer, even though it doesn't always come across in his communications (cancer is a disease that make people cringe and avoid the topic let's face it). He might not appear warm and fuzzy, but he is empathetic, and when you are dealing with a life threatening illness like cancer you would want a doctor who is smart, experienced, curious and interested in cancer care and your care, somebody who does his best to help you. You'd want an expert in the field. Dr. Chia is a great fit! And I would see a counsellor for psychosocial and emotional healing, which she is good at and trained to do.
Dr Chia has been my oncologist for over 2 years. I feel I am in very good hands under his care. His is extremely knowledgeable and I do find him very easy to talk to. He answers my questions easily. He also attracts really great Fellows to work with him. I have enjoyed working with these professionals. I really admire Dr. Chia
Dr. Chia has been my oncologist for almost 2 years now, and I think he is amazing. He is personable, gentle, thorough, and always answers all my questions with compassion and facts. I find him warm and available…so appreciate he is my medical oncologist on my breast cancer journey. Although I am a 'simple' case with a stage 1 early catch, I do not feel that he takes me or my case any less seriously than far more complex and tragic cases that I am sure he deals with. A grateful cancer patient…
Dr. Chia's lack of interest in the human side of medicine is very apparent. Hint of aspergers regarding his cold lack of connection. It was chilling being in a room with him. You would think his massive research would have uncovered a note or two regarding how actually relating to patients never mind compassion would have an affect on healing. Trusting your pharmacologist (which is basically what he is) is paramount to having good results from the toxins.
Being a patient to this man was a horrible experience. my questions were answered via grunts. Very primitive, also rarely spent more than 2 minutes with me. Shook his head a lot then told me to buy drugs off the street. yes, he had Dr., in front of that name. I'd be ashamed. Women, please do not go through the horror i did with this guy, see a woman or a man who doesn't have an agenda, is cold as ice, no compassion...........on and on i can go but i won't. Nothing positive to say about him.
