Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chitkara "It is important to manage a person with their medical problems - not only the medical problem. It is important for the people coming through the office to understand what their medical problem or diagnosis is, and to understand the treatment options, if any, which are available."

in Port Jefferson, NY |
Had vocal cords scoped twice by Dr. Chitkara. . Best experience, hardly felt the instrument, didn't gag. Very knowledgeable, latest equipment. HIGHLY recommend him.
Stony Brook, NY |
Periodic loss of voice. Explained what he was going to do. Discussed findings and options. I was able to talk at time of visit and was told that when I lose my voice again to call and that he would see me at that time.
in Brentwood NY |
I called Dr. Chitkara specifically for my vocal chords. Waited a month for an appointment, they don't accept my insurance, and wouldn't tell me the charge other than "at least $250". Lost time from work to get there, called to say I'd be 15 minutes late. I was left sitting in the waiting room for an hour, and then asked when he could see me. "oh, he's running late". YOU COULDN'T TELL ME THAT WHILE I WAS WAITING?? I walked out. Unprofessional, inconsiderate, to heck with that stuff!
Selden, NY |
I would NOT recommend him for pediatrics. I don't know how he is as a doctor for adults, but peds no way. I have a 5 month old and I was referred to him by my pediatrician for breathing issues with larynx and we sat in his office waiting for almost 3 hours until we were seen and at that point we were only seen because I said we were going to leave... come on- a 5 month having to wait over 3 hours!!! Then after the visit I call and leave a message for him about her breathing... no return call!
