I just want to say thank you to Dr. Chai. A random case of bronchitis 3 says before my scheduled surgery with another MD almost 14 years ago, led me into the hands of Dr. Chai. I am now 33 years old and am told I am the healthiest TGA patient on caseload.. this would not be possible without his successful surgery to repair my aortic coractation. I am thankful for his knowledge, patience, expertise and passion to help others. Because of him I get to do the same for others as a PT:)

Every day, my wife and I are grateful to Dr. Chai for having saved our 7 year old’s life! He was diagnosed with an interrupted aortic arch and Dr Chai performed a 100% successful surgery to correct it. His relaxed, confident and upbeat manner in the pre-surgery consultation with us was so reassuring and put us at ease during a moment of shock. We really liked how he interacted with our son and his 6 year old brother. It is now 3 months post surgery and our son is a normal, healthy vigorous kid!
