I enjoyed meeting Dr. Chahal. She listened, was personable, explained tests and possible results as well as types of treatment options, and indicated when I would hear from her and how long test results take. She even made me laugh. Thenurse/technician was less personable but efficient, and the front desk staff were friendly and efficient.

I really like Dr. Chahal. This is the second appt I have had with her. I even had a procedure done at Washington Hospital Center after my first appt with her, and she came to check on me before I wentunder. She explains things in depth so you can understand what's going on, and isn't quick to push you to make decisions right away. I recommend, hands down..

Dr Chahal was very professional during my first visit to discuss my cardio-logical situation. She impressed me with her intellect and medical knowledge. She also was interested in my case to the point that she wanted me to understand my medicalproblems as well as the best ways to improve my health. She spoke in clear, simple terms and welcomed my questions and feedback. She was positive and optimistic more like an athletic coach than a high school principal scolding me for my poor lifestyle habits. I welcome that and look forward to being her patient.
