TESTIMONIALS

"Dr Chhabra literally saved my life over four years ago after I had been to several ER’s and had numerous tests done. He looked at me as an individual and took the time to do tests that other doctors might have ignored, thinking I was too young. He found the problem and implanted a pacemaker, but that wasn’t the only treatment. Due to other health issues he had to place me on a specific dose of medication to balance my blood pressure. He followed up until it was just right. He is the kindest doctor I know and has been available to me even after hours if needed. He also takes care of my father and has done an ablation and a pacemaker for him. His staff is also wonderful! He is truly the BEST!"
