Dr Chhokar is one of the finest Dr's I have had the honor of knowing. She has a way of making everyone feel special. No question is ever not important to her. She always explains so you understand. She is just wonder and loved by all! Kathy Cannon

Very caring and concerned. Her LPN Jaquita is very very kind and both are thorough when giving information. From the moment I checked in through checking out I was treated with kindness. The ladies who answer the phone seem a bit baffled and weren't as kind as the rest of the staff though. I am so glad I was given my follow up appointments upon check out because I know calling in to get them would have been a confusing ordeal.

Dr. Chhokar is a very down to earth, concerned doctor. She saved my life over 20 years ago and I will always be eternally grateful!
