Excellent Experience. Dr Chitkara took the time to listen to all of my issues and followed up two days later. Office Staff very friendly. I waited for less than 5 minutes.

Absolutely love dr. Chitkara I was worried about my son with bumbs behind his ear so I called the office at 10 pm and dr. Chitkara answers and has me explain everything to him although it sounded like I woke him up and he helps ease my mind and told me to come in that next morning first thing and he would look at him. Any time any three of my sons are there he is very kind and patient with him. I highly recommend him to anyone!
