Dr C is consistently awesome. He makes the video format work very well considering his practice requires a review of physical characteristics and changes over time. He is always so thorough and such a pleasure to speak with.
He is an excellent Dr
This was likely my last visit with Dr Chaichian, as I am moving far away out of state soon. My experience with him has been nothing but positive. His in person care is exceptional. He always takes time to listen and seems genuinely concerned. Since he tried an “old school†treatment of Lupus with Quinacrine, my health has been improving. It’s the first medication that I was able to handle side effects, due to the mildness. I’m continuing to improve and finally getting back to living my life for the first time in 10 years! Words cannot express my gratitude. He also took the time to help me find the right Lupus Dr. for my specific needs, near where I am moving. I’m grateful for the healthcare that I have received from him.
Dr. Chaichian as always verify caring and professional. Easy to understand because his instructions and future plans to take care of my medical problems were given to me in plain English.
Dr Chaichian always tries his best. My spouse and I have been thinking of moving, but I don’t think I’d get the care elsewhere that he provides. I feel like a difficult patient, and I’ve been to other doctors in other states that would just leave me to my own devices and tell me to suck it up. I do think I would not be alive if i weren’t a patient of his, and Stanford’s in general.
Extremely patient and a great listener
I highly recommend Dr. Chaichian!
The doctor was very informative. Unfortunately, options for my problem are few.
Excellent doctor overall.

Both providers I see at Stanford have repeatedly provided excellent care. I have shown best improvement since I started with them. I'm extremely confident in my providers.
All is excellent.
Dr. Chaichian took the time to read through all my notes and address each concern. Even though it is not related to his specialty, he is concerned and has referred me to a neurologist, as there is definitely something going on and he wants to get to the source & treat.
I feel that I am getting the best possible care for my condition.
the dr was terrific! I really enjoyed working with him. I'd like to know what his conclusions are.
Care provider was "Google-ing" information during the visit as if learning himself too. This did not instill confidence in his knowledge, in my opinion.
Knowledgeable, friendly and competent.
every aspect of visit was excellent. I am a RN charge nurse in another community 3 hours away, and your facility, staff, efficiency blew me away!!!!! Medical care at its best ... Hands down have never experienced anything like your organization. I was even encouraged by my doctor to find a specialist in my area for my convenience to not have to travel.. I have to say I will not be doing that, and would travel even farther to receive the exceptional medical experience that I have thus far at your facility.
Dr Chiachain is awesome
Best provider I've ever had! Clearly cares about patients well-being. Appointments never feel rushed. Always explains next steps and follow up care well.

Dr. Chaichian is outstanding! By far my most attentive & conscientious provider. Extremely thorough & genuinely concerned about my health. Great communication - both with me & with other doctors of mine for optimal coordination of care.
What I like about Dr. Chaichian is that he and I have always been partners in my care. He consults with me about how we should treat my disease. He's helping me do the best I can given a complex disease, managing the symptoms and dealing with a treatment protocol that has unpleasant side effects. I have full confidence he will handle whatever lies ahead. He knows how to interpret test results, which tests to order, what signs to look for, and what should concern him. He worries so I don't have to. I have enough to worry about in other areas. It's precious peace of mind and very comforting.
