Patient Ratings & Comments


Comments are gathered from our patient satisfaction surveys.

Dr Chokshi is one of the most compassionate providers I have ever been treated by. I want him to be my cardiologist permanently. His concern for my conditions ( other than my heart) was genuine and very endearing.
Dr. Aalap Chokshi is excellent. I decided he will be my primary cardiologist. He explained everything in terms I understood and answered all my questions. The physicians assistant was very helpful and professional. The front desk was excellent for quick check in and scheduling...also very kind and professional.
Dr Chokshi was wonderful. Took time with me really listened to me.
Dr. Chokshi was well informed, helpful, and professional, with a good insight into my problems.
Paid close attention to my concerns about how I was feeling. Suggested sensible next steps. Understood I wanted to discuss with my primary physician before scheduling anything further. Pointed out that one of my blood pressure meds might be causing my recurring gout. Brilliant if I could do away with that horrible pain!
