Patient Reviews (14)
in Grand Island, NY |
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.
in Lockport |
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.

Went to Dr. Chugh in A-fib. Set me up for ablation surgery that day. Fixed the problem immediately. Dr. Chugh knows what he's doing., period.
in West Seneca, NY |
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
in Tonawanda, NY |
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.
in Kenmore, NY |
Dr. Chugh was very thorough and took time to listen to me.
in Buffalo, NY |
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.
in West Amherst, NY |
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!
in East Amherst, NY |
Dr. Chugh has been my doctor for over ten years and I highly recommend him. He is very professional and communicates health issues in a clear and understanding way. He listens to concerns and follows up on them. There is no long wait in the office and the staff are courteous and friendly. I am very satisfied with Dr. Chugh.
in Buffalo, NY |
Dr. Chugh is always punctual. Explains everything in terms so you can understand. Answers all questions clearly and treats me as a human being.
in N. Tonawanda, NY |
Dr.Chugh has been my Cardiologist for 10 years. He saved my life!! He is a true professional and I would recommend him to anyone.
