Dr. Chaudhry, performed surgery on our daughter Stephanie two weeks ago for Pancreatic Cancer which was a nine hour surgery. Because of the cancer he had to remove her pancreas, gallbladder, spleen, and most of her stomach. Dr. Chaudhry is truly blessed as a surgeon as Stephanie is at home now...more
