About Maria E. Chiejina, MD

My desire to pursue a career in gastroenterology was driven mostly by values instilled in me by my faith and family, especially my physician father. Thus, being a physician is a true calling and privilege for me. Gastroenterology provides a fascinating blend of being an intellectual physician and having endoscopic technical skills. I believe that delivering compassionate care to my patients at their most vulnerable times is of utmost importance. I also delight in building healthy relationships with my patients so they can be fully involved in shared decision-making for their individual health needs. Respecting individual rights, privileges and preferences, and providing timely, high-quality health care to patients can best be achieved through a team approach.

OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

Rating based on "Did the healthcare provider or doctor provide the care you expected?"

4.6out of 5
  • July 19, 2024

    That I paid 40.00 for nothing. They should have looked at my medical notes before my appointment and could have called me that she couldn’t help me

  • July 17, 2024

    The doctor and staff were professional and knowledgeable. Even though there was a miscommunication about why I needed to see doctor. The doctor was still helpful.

  • June 21, 2024

    The reception staff was amazing. I had my kids with me and they were very kind to them. The nurse was very high energy and helped walk through the appointment. I didn’t know what to expect. The doctor took time to listen and looked at my history and my family information to help with answers for my health issues.

  • June 20, 2024
