Dr Chugh cares about his patients. He knows his business well. At the age of 49 he told me to have my mitro valve repaired at Cleveland Clinic. (Note for Cleveland bring your own post op nurse) To many old people getting heart operations there so you just become a number. But anyways Cleveland did a great job, and today is 5/22/2019 and I am 65 my cardiologist says my heart sounds perfectly normal and tests are near perfect. Theres no info on Mitro valve repair, but is been 15 years, so I am pleased. No leakage so listen to Dr Chugh. Thank you Dr Chugh. Bruce Bradley remember me?

My husband feels that Dr. Chug was definitely instrumental in saving his life. My husband was not easily convinced to go to doctors or to follow instructions. Dr. Chug was honest, informative and sufficiently direct in telling my husband he needed to go straight to the hospital; he ended up having multiple bypass surgery. Thank you Dr. Chug! Also, He is in a beautiful new office where every staff member we talked to was happy to help.

Honestly, he is one of the best doctors I've come across in my lifetime. I have a genetic dysfunction, thus having to see doctor after doctor, specialist after specialist. I'm 34 now, and started seeing Dr. Chugh a couple of years ago. He is an amazing doctor and really thinks about each case individually and uniquely. He tried an out of the box thinking treatment and I've had good success with it. He's also not afraid to look things up or do research which is key, many other doctor's wouldn't.

Dr Chug and his staff are caring and friendly. Dr Chug takes all the time that you need when he sees you. ALways explains everything in plain english so I can understand everything. He fights for his patients and when you call in with a problem his nurse gets back to you quickly and one time she had to contact the dr and he was on vacation , she got ahold of him and got me the answers that I needed.

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 with kindness and respect. I am now a patient and find that he continues to be an incredibly awesome cardiologist! His knowledge, expertise and consideration of his patients is truly outstanding!

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.

Dr Chugh identified my heart condition and immediately applied the correct procedure to fix the issue. This after my primary doctor failed to diagnose a rather significant heart condition. In previous experience with Dr Chugh he recommended a heart operation for my 84 year old father in law to be performed in the Cleveland Clinic. This added 10 quality years to his life. This after previous cardiologists would not recommend the procedure. I have recommended Dr Cugh to my wife

Was referred to Dr. Chugh by primary MD after abnormal EKG. Took less than 1 hour to get from PMD office and into Chugh's exam room. Staff went right to work to get prior authorization for nuclear stress test. After review, Dr. Chugh recommended that I get an angiogram ASAP. His colleague (K.Phadke) performed this exam two days later and determined that I needed triple bypass which was completed within the week at GVI. Have also seen Dr. Rana who is also excellent. Office staff is amazing.

I am a 59 year old male referred to Dr, Chugh by my primary due to a low heart rate. He lowered my blood pressure medication perhaps set too high by other cardiac physicians. He was also blunt with me about my being overweight and challenged me to get it under control. In only a few months I have reduced my weight over 30 lbs. and my blood pressure/heart rate look fine. He essentially gave me a wake up call, am thankful, and give him a high recommendation.

Don't wait to associate yourself with Dr. Dennis Chugh, cardiologist. You don't have to have suffered a heart attack to make an appointment with him. Just not feeling well - not feeling like myself - something is wrong are feelings that should lead you to a discussion with your primary care physician regarding seeking a cardiologist - and Dr. Chugh is the name you should bring up in that discussion. 16 years of placing my heart health in his skillful hands. I am totally satistied!
