Dr Chhajwani is a very compassionate caring doctor. He takes time to explain and answer any questions you have about your condition. Does not mind referring you to a specialist if he feels necessary. I have been patient for over 10 years and my kidney function has been maintained.

Very caring, respected doctor. Wouldn't trade him for anything. Nick, his P.A. is wonderful also!

Didn't bother to tell me about my father's Potassium being too high for over 6 months and he died of a sudden heart attack.
