Dr. Chin was born the middle child of three in Hong Kong. At two and a half years old, a young NeeOo Chin ventured to the United States with his family to settle in Walnut Hills, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. He was an average student in grade school; however, in the eighth grade he seriously began to consider his career. He graduated from Withrow High School in 1973 summa cum laude, voted as "Most Likely to Succeed" and "Most Scholastic". From there he attended Edgecliff College on a partial scholarship, but transferred to the University of Cincinnati his sophomore year. Following in the footsteps of his father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-great-grandfather with aspirations of a career in medicine, he applied to medical school. After his completion of undergraduate studies and working for a year at his father's restaurant, NeeOo left for medical school at Ohio State University.
NeeOo finished his four-year medical school studies at Ohio State University in only three years, and then moved on to his arduous residency at Duke University Medical Center. It was amidst this experience NeeOo discovered his niche- babies. From this interest, others more specific emerged.
First, he became enthralled by a text in medical school that insisted in vitro fertilization was not possible in primates and secondly, his relationship with his chairman, Dr Charles Hammond at Duke University Medical Center, a reproductive endocrinologist, spawned his final calling to complete a 2 year sub-specialty fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Ohio State University College of Medicine with his mentor Dr Moon Kim. In part of recent experiences, Neeoo has rounded out his services with the addition of Acupucture, training through Stanford University Medical Center.
NeeOo founded The Bethesda Fertility Center in 1987. In 1992 he moved on to The Christ Hospital to establish a new fertility center in Cincinnati. He served as Co-Director for the center, providing services in reproductive endocrinology and infertility including in vitro fertilization. In 1995 he had the first successful in vitro fertilization birth of a lowland gorilla in the world, Timu, at the Cincinnati Zoo.
After twelve years of conducting both private practice services as well as in vitro fertilization, Dr. Chin decided to streamline his practice. He shifted his practice to solely low technology infertility treatments and reproductive surgeries relocating to the Mason area of Cincinnati. This change in Dr. Chin's life has allowed him to do what he does best, giving exceptional care, time, and attention to his patients. He conducts his practice in a down-to-earth and personal fashion, taking the time to console, to explain, and to reassure. His support staff mirrors this approach, making the entire office setting comfortable, friendly, and efficient. This new location has also given him the opportunity to practice what he preaches by being able to spend more time with his family.
