Dr. Chugh is a very knowledgeable, understanding, caring, kind and compassionate cardiologist! I initially came to be acquainted with him though his care for developmentally disabled clients that I was working with. He was very attentive to their specific needs and always took time to treat them...more

Coming from someone who used to work for Northtowns Cardiology I wouldn't recommend anywhere else. Dr.Chugh is extremely knowledgeable and dedicates his life to his work. He wants nothing more than to give every patient the care that they need and I've never seen anyone work as hard as he does.

I would highly recommend Dr. Chugh to my family and friends. He addressed all of my concerns and even took extra time for additional advice. He never makes you feel rushed or my concerns be insignificant. I appreciate the fact he is honest and direct.
