Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Chawla saved my life. I can't stress what and incredible physician and human being he is. It's such a challenging time, and he really does treat you like family. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my care!
Dr. Chawla has saved my life and I truly owe everything to him. I was told by my oncologist up north that I had 2 years to live, but when I came to Dr. Chawla he told me they would do everything in their power to not only treat me but to cure me. He found a clinical trial I qualified for, checked in on me constantly, and always made me feel like we were in it together. It's now been 1.5 years and I'm stronger than ever. The situation sucks, but I am so lucky to have Dr. Chawla!!
