Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome, Chronic Snoring
“I was diagnosed at a busy, large medical center, where I had to wait 6+ months for a follow-up appointment to be able to speak to a doctor again. Dr. Chenin was the first person to talk to me in detail about what was going on with me, the science behind it, and most importantly, what I could do to improve my condition from both a doctor’s and personal perspective (as he also went through this journey himself). I am still in the process of undergoing treatment, but I have had significant improvements in my condition over the past few months, and don’t know where I’d be without Dr. Chenin. He is very communicative even outside of scheduled appointments and goes above and beyond what is required of his job. I would highly recommend him!” – Neale J.

Address: 950 Stockton St #368, San Francisco, CA 94108
“Dr. Meng’s diagnostic and patient skills are remarkable. She diagnosed me immediately with something I had tried to manage for years without help. She quickly got my treatment authorized and understood my needs. I couldn’t believe it was so easy. She is highly trained, empathetic, and such an effective specialist. I’ve seen many physicians who are great but getting things done within the office is so difficult. She navigates insurance companies and red tape approvals like a pro. She called me the next day to let me know they would be able to give me my treatment. From my experience, this can be a very unrefined process in other offices. I don’t know how she manages it all, but she seems to do it with compassion and ease. Highly recommend!” – Liberty D.S
