Dr. Kochhar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kochhar "Dr. Amit Kochhar completed his training in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery (Ear, Nose and Throat) at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He then completed a Fellowship in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at UCLA where he focused on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, specifically rhinoplasty (nasal surgery), face lifting and cancer reconstruction. Dr. Kochhar has always had an interest in science and technology but he did not decide to pursue medicine until he went to college at the University of Maryland, College Park. During that time he spent several summers working at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. These summer experiences are what Dr. Kochhar enjoyed the most. They allowed him to appreciate the medical environment, team camaraderie and caring for patients. As both a Facial Plastic and Head and Neck Surgeon, Dr. Kochhar receives gratification knowing that he is able to have an impact of improving a patient's life, from smell and taste to the ability to sleep and be active. In his spare time, Dr. Kochhar enjoys the outdoors, hiking and running, and spending with his wife and two small children."

This surgeon is very unprofessional. He also posts surgeries he actually has no experience doing. Do not be a guinea pig to this type of surgeon.
