Dr. Chekuri has saved my life for over 9 years now. He is direct and upfront with his patients. Clearly one would want a cardiologist who doesn't sugar coat anything and who is highly skilled in his profession. If you want one of the best cardiologist in this area Dr. Chekuri is the one!

Dr. Breeling has saved my life. He has been my physician for 7 years now and has helped me lose weight and has taken great care of me. He is very knowledgeable and and listens to his patients. Dr. Breeling has a great personality and I will be sorry to lose him when I move out of state next year
