    Dr. Chawla is one of the most caring and respectful doctors. He truly goes above and beyond for his patients. My Dad has been his patient for 6 years. Through this time he has put my Dad's health as if he were caring for his own family member. My Dad recently was hospitalized. He had the hospital doctors caring for him but to no surprise Dr. Chawla came to the hospital to scrutinize my Dad's care. We are truly Blessed to have Dr. Chawla taking care of my Dad!!! He is so amazing!! Thank you!
