What People Say About Dr. Rajinder Chhokar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
As a nurse in the ER, I was very impressed with her work,her rapid acessment of patient and action. She has a pleasing bedside manor. Then in 1991 my mother came up to visit,had a silent MI,Dr.Chhokar gladly took her as her patient. She has no problem telling you if she does not know the answer but will find a MD that does. I myself became her patien in 1995 and Iwould not hesitate one second to put my life in her hands. By the way if you are in the wrong she will tell you.AGreat Cardiac Doctor

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.
