He’s professional, knowledgeable, caring, has a wonderful bedside manner. Dr. Chokshi explained everything in order for my husband and meI to understand. He gave us two options, have surgery, there is no guarantees the only guarantee is that I’ll be in pain We choose to go forward with rest and a few exercises. 3(the first option)this was the second time seeing him, he was the sublime both times.

In July, I broke my knee cap in half. Dr. Chokshi did a superb job repairing the damage.. He was courteous and spent time discussing my situation and how he would repair it. Excellent friendly staff. I would recommend him to everyone that needs his services.

I have dealt with Dr. Chokshi on a number of occasions. After going to several doctors, including a Infectious disease doctor, Dr. Chokshi diagnosed my son with Lyme disease. He also operated on my son's arm. He has also operated on my knee. That being said, the last time I went to see him with my other son we waited an 1 1/2 hrs, even though it said he was on time. He was very rude when I commented on this. He definitely has a god complex. Will go to Hartford next time.

Dr Chokshi was completely rude today after waiting three weeks to get in for a follow up of my MRI. Told me I have an impingement. What do I want him to do. Told me would not operate on me because I smoke. Quit smoking and go get a blood test for nicotine and call to schedule an appointment after that! I left the office flabbergasted! Never had an experience like this in my life. Post on your website if you smoke don't bother to come see me.

Dr. Chokshi treated my wife's shattered arm a couple of years ago and skillfully and caringly put her back together. It required various elements of hardware. Today she has virtually no issues with that arm. We speak often at how he saved her. I recently had carpal tunnel surgery and the process was nearly painless and the recovery better than I expected. Our meetings with him have been informative and he has always treated us with respect never rushing us. We highly recommend him

Dr. Chokshi is perhaps that most brilliant surgeon I have ever utilized. He is infinitely thoughtful, patient, and skilled. I've had many ortho related surgeries. Dr. Chokshi stands unique among them. He will explain as much as you would like to know. He cares not just before he gets the job, but with his follow-up as well. He is not just someone trying to line his pockets. He is the most sincere and genuine Dr. I have ever known. I can not possibly rate him high enough. He is the best.

This doctor was great while doing my carpal tunnel surgery, not sure what happened. I was just in for severe pain in my wrists, hands and fingers and he dismissed me in short order only to say it's old age setting in and live with it. I asked him for arthritis medication, he asked what I was already taking, ( ibprofin that's hurting my stomach) and never took the time to explain what may be out there for other choices. After waiting over an hour, he dismissed me without regard to my pain....
