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 and progressing very well. This great surgeon would not give up on our daughter and told her he would not stop until he had all the cancer out. His calm demeanor and straightforwardness was appreciated.
