Dr. Chockalingam is a great doctor, but the wait time is ridiculous. I have been waiting almost 2 hours. No option to reschedule was offered. I was pretty much told to wait or I could call when I was ready to be rescheduled.

Dr. Chockalingham takes whatever time is needed with his patients, carefully explaining everything in terms non-medical professionals can understand. He is highly competent and trustworthy. The only problem I have ever experienced with his office is overly long wait times. When I complained about it to him, he apologized and explained his plan for addressing the problem, and his plan is working, so I now have no complaints about the office, only praise.
