Twelve years ago Dr. Chaudhry performed a quadruple by-pass at St. Agnes following a "small " heart attack when I was 75 years old. My recovery took a few months but I returned to full strength and have enjoyed life and family and hobbies. Now at 87 the body is failing but I thank Dr. Chaudhry for these extra years. Harold D.

Dr. Chaudhry was knowledgeable and candid about my medical problems. He was able to schedule my surgery in a very timely manner. He displayed a great sense of humor. The procedure and results were as predicted with the exception that my hospital stay was considerable longer than expected.
