I initially was referred to Dr. Chahal because of wife. I normally hate to going to the doctor's office because the extended wait times in the waiting room. Well I was very surprised at how smooth and timely the process took. I was seen no later than 30 mins after my scheduled visit. He took his time with explaining what was going on and gave me several options to treat it after he got my diagnostic results. Although its quite a drive from my house I will continue to see him.

I absolutely love Dr. Chahal and his staff. The office staff are always professional and attentive. Anytime I have a question or need my results they follow-up promptly. He has great bedside manners and is very attentive to my concerns. I never feel rushed. They also now have a lab on site to draw blood work which is a plus for me.

My first time having surgery in N Cypress hosp and dr Chahal was attentive, kind, professional, very understanding towards my wishes for no blood as a Jehovah's Witness. He related a tender personal patient-to-Doctor story so moving that as tears swelled in his eyes he continued confessing that the relationship turned into a friendship and not aware he was encouraging me with strength to make it through my ordeal. He seems sincere and caring.

Dr. Chahal treated mother while she was in the hospital with a UTI and dehydration . He was very condescending and difficult to talk to. He over sedated her to the point that she was too weak to feed herself. When I expressed my concerns, his response was, do you want me to put a feeding tube in her? He was asked by several members of my family to cut back on the sedatives. He did not listen and increased the dosage in her orders once she left the hospital. She never recovered.
there is misunderstanding; the patient was discharged from the hospital not by me; I was off duty on a weekend when she discharged
