Dr. Chawla treated my son for Stage IV colon cancer for over two years. In that two years I accompanied my son to every appointment and found that Dr. Chawla did everything thing he could to assure my sons quality of life. Dr. Chawla never rushed the appointment, always taking the time to listen. Dr. Chawla is a warm and caring doctor. Many thanks.

I started seeing Bobby Chawla 3 years ago. And, he has become the greatest friend, ally, and Doctor in whom I trust. I always feel better after I visit with him, even when I'm at my worst. His knowledge abounds. His humour and infectious smile lightens the load. He is a great listener who has answered my off-the-wall questions, venting, and concerns. He will talk to you about finance costs, procedures, your particular leukemia type, treatments (if any) out there, your outlooks, fears and hopes. He is patient and genuinely cares for you. Never rushes you. He and his assistant, Savannah, are always there and genuinely working quickly for your betterment in every way they can, never dropping the ball. Dr. Bobby Chawla is the best!

My husband and I were pleased with my first visit with Dr. Chawla. He was caring, and made sure we had a good understanding of what was happening with my disease process and what is to be done next in coming to a knowledge of an appropriate treatment plan.

My being given this survey is a little premature as I’ve only had my first appointment and no diagnosis yet, of course. Dr. Chawla was friendly, explained my situation well and allowed me time to ask questions. I will better be able to answer survey questions after a few more appointments.

Dr Chawla is very personable and kind. He has always made sure I was getting the best treatment possible. He is very passionate about what he does and is always thinking of his patients and what is best for them. I am happy to say that I am still in remission. The last year and a half journey was amazing and God's hand was in it all. God bless you on your journey so that you may tell His amazing story.
