I was urged to come in earlier than my scheduled appointment due to the findings on a CT scan. I was advised to get a biopsy and was told they would contact another doctor to do the biopsy and that that doctor's office would contact me. It has now been 8 days and no one has contacted me. I have called the lung center 3 times and left messages on 3 different days and no one has returned my call. I do not have the name of the doctor they wanted to refer me to so I can contact them myself. Meanwhile anxiety increases as I am unable to make plans for the biopsy, other medical appointments, general life decisions, etc.

I love Dr. Changawala. I have been seeing him for years. He takes the time to let me talk and clearly explains everything. He answers all my questions. He is caring and kind. He takes time to discuss all alternatives I might have until I understand them. Thank you, Dr. Changawala. I've told you personally that you are the best doctor I've ever had!

I have been under Dr. Changawala's care for minor bronchial & asthmatic issues for approximately 4 years. He is a very thorough, cautious, & caring doctor. He readily answers my questions & spends as much time with me as is necessary. He is very encouraging as he provides his medical opinions with me. I very much appreciate his constant feedback.

When treated by Dr. C you get complete answers to questions. And great explanations about treatments. He has been instrumental in solving my lung issues and set me on the path to better health. I don’t have the words to tell how much I respect him and his diagnoses.

I have been under the care of Dr. Changawala since August 2017. The week of August 13th, 2018 my wife & I both have tried to contact the doctor for five (5) days straight with a concern regarding one of my medications and nobody has ever bothered to return our calls. According to his staff they have left messages with him. Evidently his patients are of no great concern to him unless it is a scheduled appointment for which he is getting paid.

Dr Changawala may be the best doctor I have ever encountered. He cared for my mom from diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis until the disease took her. Dr Changawala has a wonderful, caring bedside manner. Each time mom was hospitalized, we knew once he came into the room that we were in great hands. His caring nature and incredible knowledge was so appreciated by the whole family. Thanks for your wonderful care of my mom. You are the best.

He is kind, compassionate and takes the time to be with you on each appointment. I have several specialist but Dr Changawala is by far my favorite. The office staff is very good as well.

Dr. Changawala is great! I saw him for the first time yesterday and was so impressed with his manor and the way he explained things. I was terrified after meeting with my primary physician and Dr. Changawala put me at ease. He is a diamond in the rough here in Vegas.
