    Dr Chokshi diagnosed my back problem very quickly and gave me his medical opinion on correcting it. Dr Chokshi and his medical staff were very professional and my back issue has been corrected.The hospital stay at Mcleod hospital in Florence South Carolina was the best experience that I have had for a surgical procedure. I am extremely satisified with the entire process.
