I’m heartbroken, as I just found out Dr Chawla retired during COVID. He was absolutely amazing! He listened to what I had to say and did whatever he could to get to the bottom of the issue. (No pun intended lol) He was extremely intelligent, had a great sense of humor, would often call me back himself instead of a nurse or receptionist, and never rushed appointments. He was an all around great doctor. Cheers to your retirement and enjoy the time with your children. You will be very missed in the Chester County community!!

Dr. Chawla is a stellar example of a physician that cares. I took my mom to see Dr. Chawla for a colonoscopy consult. He took the time to put my mother at ease, reviewed her history, offered recommendations and instilled a lot of confidence. He made eye contact and conveyed his feedback in simple terms. He has the old world charm of connecting with patients, listening to them and making it personal. Its a lost art and it is so refreshing to see it these days! Dr. Chawla is also very astute, talented and methodical. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chawla to all friends and family.

(I have Crohn's.) I had been avoiding gastroenterologists for the longest time because of bad experiences in the past. When I moved to the area, I finally decided to give another specialist a shot. With Dr. Chawla I found the perfect fit. He knows to listen and treats his patients with respect. Furthermore, he leaves no stone unturned. I/We have finally found something that has helped me. It's an ongoing struggle but with Dr. Chawla I feel optimistic about the future.

He did my colonoscopy 2 years ago. Naturally, I was a little nervous, but he was great and I remember it as a positive experience. Will go to him again.

A terrible doctor. Failed miserably in regards to an accurate diagnosis. Clearly did not listen and was more interested in trying to impress with how much he knew, but he clearly got it wrong. Would never recommend.

Intelligent, caring doctor with great social skills. He was adept at synthesizing my complicated gi medical history and communicating his diagnosis to me in a clear, thoughtful manner. Wish we had more doctors like him in the region. Top notch doctor in all respects.

I was concerned about some health issues before I got my colonoscopy. Dr Chawla took the time to go over each issue being sure I understood completely. He took extra time to explain in detail so I felt comfortable and safe.
