What People Say About Dr. Nisarg Changawala, MD

I had deteriorated over the span of 6 mos. of taking amiodarone to the pt. where I couldn't take 3 steps without gasping for breath and I had started having spots on my lungs. At my 1st visit, Dr C told me to immediately get off amiodarone. In 2 weeks I was already almost back to normal. My previous pulmonologist had told me my breathlessness was caused by my weight and he made no mention of the spots on my lungs. I had weighed the same for 4-5 years. Dr. Changawala knew it was the amiodarone. He saved my life.

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.

I switched to Lung Center of Nevada and have been seeing Dr Changawala now for 2 years. My first appointment he did more than the previous doctor in in 18 months. 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.
