About Dr. Chinn!
Melissa Chinn, DO, FACOG, is a fun-loving physician and the founder of Chinn GYN, LLC, a comprehensive women’s healthcare practice located in Mount Vernon, Washington.
Born and raised in Seattle, Dr. Chinn completed her medical training and residency in California and Nevada, respectively. Dr. Chinn is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, which means she was trained to take care of the person within the patient. Her approach is inherently integrative & truly holistic.
Dr. Chinn believes it is hard to treat a condition without addressing its full context, and she knows that laughter truly is the best medicine. She approaches each situation with both her refreshing sense of humor and her tremendous compassion. She has been a physician since 2001, and she has been practicing since 2005 in the greater Seattle area. In 2019, she decided to focus her practice where her true passion lies: overall women’s wellness and gynecology.
Dr. Chinn prefers a practice model that addresses women as complete humans and has therefore established Chinn GYN to allow her to tailor her practice uniquely to each individual. She hates being in the stirrups as much as you do and is a ISFJ-T personality type.
