Dr. Chawla replaced my aortic valve with a mechanical valve about 25 years. ago. He’s an excellent surgeon as can be attested by the fact that at age 73, I am doing great.

Dr Chawla performed my quad bypass. Went home three days later better than ever. He was very personable for a surgeon and was always there to answer my questions and help me understand with good explanations. I'd recommend him for my family. Enough said!!
