COVID-19/Coronavirus Update

Overview of the virus

COVID-19 is an illness caused by a new strain of coronavirus. It is believed to spread in ways similar to the common cold—such as through coughs, sneezes, or handshakes. We are following established infection prevention protocols and remain prepared to care for patients. We have trained and practiced for these scenarios. When you enter our clinic, you may see certain staff members wearing masks. This is a preventative measure. Patients who exhibit any respiratory symptoms will also be asked to wear masks and will be rescheduled for non-emergent appointments.

Important Information about your upcoming appointment:

Keep Your Scheduled Appointments

You should not avoid seeking necessary care out of concerns about COVID-19 and you should keep your appointments unless otherwise instructed by your physician. However, if you are experiencing symptoms or think you've been exposed to COVID-19, call your doctor before going to your appointment.

If We Need to Reschedule

Your Appointment
As things evolve, we may reach out to reschedule clinic visits or procedures. In the event that we need to reschedule your appointment, we will call you.

Keep Taking Your Medications

We recommend that you continue taking all medications, as prescribed, unless otherwise instructed by your physician. Contact your physician if you have questions. While you are visiting our office, please remember to follow the CDC’s guidelines concerning social distancing and hand hygiene to protect yourself and others.

EFFECTIVE 3/23/2020 - 4/9/2020:

We will be reducing our office hours and will be open from 8am-2pm. If you have an urgent matter outside of these hours, please call 911. If you need to speak with us about a non-urgent matter, please call our office between the hours of 8am-2pm.

What Our Patients are Saying

I rest 100% better while using my CPAP machine. I no longer snore, have a sore throat or sinus problems. I ALWAYS use my CPAP!

Sandhills Neurologists is the best thing that has happened to me! I wish I had come year years sooner!

Once I used CPAP, it was like a whole new world! I didn’t realize I had been deprived of good rest and sleep for so long until I used my CPAP for the first time. I was like a whole new person the next day!

Excellent service and care! 5 stars for the clinic! Understanding, great listener and excellent staff!

I have always found Dr. Chin to be prompt, caring, very thorough and up to date. His staff is friendly and accommodating. His diagnostic skills are quick and accurate.

Dr. Chin is a wonderful DR. The home sleep study was easy. Following the directions made all the difference. And the phone sleep app also helps you understand your sleep pattern.

I had a bad power cord for my CPAP machine and the employees at Sandhills Neurologists allowed me to borrow a machine until my new power cord was mailed to me. Awesome service… I highly recommend Dr. Chin and his staff.

I can’t believe how much better I feel after sleeping with CPAP. I use it everytime I sleep, even when taking naps. Dr. Chin and his staff are wonderful!

Dr. Chin – Your kindness is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you so much for trying to help me. After meeting you, I feel so good about putting all of my trust in you, and know you will do your best for me.

This has been the BEST experience my husband and I have had with a specialist. Dr. Tellez took all the time needed to diagnose and treat our problems. He encouraged healthier treatments that have never been recommended by other Neurologists and we got amazing results! The whole team at Sandhills Neurologists spend so much time with us and were so caring. We are so, so, SO thankful for Dr. Tellez. We now have new hope for better quality of life. I can’t say enough good things. We thank God for them everyday.
