Dr. Kavita Chawla is amazing! She is always kind, informative and spends quality time during my visits. She goes the extra mile so make sure everything is in order for my health. She has also helped me to make better choices about my health and well being. My wife and I both use her as our Primary Care. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation!

July 2017
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE BUT I THINK MY MOTHER WILL GET BETTER CARE ELSEWHERE.

July 2017
Dr Chawla is extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring and listens to problems and concerns. Highly recommend her.

July 2017
kavita is very good primary care doctor. i strongly recommend her to others.

July 2017
Dr. Chawla is amazing, there has been many different health issues that have all intertwined, but through out she has had my health in top concern even when i am difficult.

July 2017
Dr Chawla was extremely calm while listening and understanding the situation, masterful in diagnosing and explaining the problem back to us (in both medical and layman terms) and very inclusive in her ability to make decisions along with us. The patient and family felt very comfortable with the whole process, and very confident on leaving the room about this situation. Fantastic experience! Thank you!

July 2017
Dr. Chawla is knowlegable, thorough, and compassionate. She never makes you feel rushed. She´s a great listener. She reviews a treatment plan and then takes the time for conversation regarding the plan. She´s a great physician, and very human.

June 2017
I could not be more delighted that Dr Chawla has assumed my care since Dr. Diangi left. Dr. C is warm and communicates a genuine interest and care about the issues that brought me in. I feel she really listens and responds effectively to what I have to report. I am very grateful to have "chosen"her from many available physicians.

May 2017
Dr. Kavita Chawla is wonderful. I checked Very Good on all accounts because she is just that!!

May 2017
Dr. Chawla was great in every way!

May 2017
I am very impressed with this doctor. I had to find a new doctor after Sandra DiAngi became ill, and I thought that was impossible, but I know Dr. Chawla is everything I was looking for in a replacement. She has to understand that she can´t move or retire until after I´m dead!!

April 2017
I have recommended this office to my colleagues and I know several of them go to this office as a result.

April 2017
Dr. Chawla is wonderful, always makes me feel like I am getting the best possible care.

April 2017
I was nervous because it´s my first time seeing her. I was hit with a big issue for a bit and she handled it the absolute best way possible. I´m so excited for dr chawla to be my PCP

April 2017
I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to have Dr. Chawla as my doctor. In fact, I let her know that on this visit. I appreciate how she makes me feel like I am a family member that she cares deeply about the care I receive. She is so through and explains things so well and when emphasis is required, she looks at me and repeats what she said so that she is sure I understand how important my part of my own care is. I truly am blessed by her thoroughness and how I always feel "heard,"

April 2017
she is wonderful!

March 2017
I was recommended to her... and I have since recommended her to a friend

March 2017
I am feel very fortunate to be able to see Dr. Chawla for my health care! I find her warm, caring, and interested in how I am doing and informative.

February 2017
Dr Chawla was (and has been every time I have seen her) concerned, detailed with explanations when I needed more detail, understanding of my concerns and worry, and proactive in fixing the immediate problem as well as open about the need for longer term research and correction of whatever the underlying reason is FOR this problem.

February 2017
Time allowed for a new patient seems too short to fully cover a history......Dr. Chowla did spend time but I felt rushed at end. What is important to the patient can be overlooked as patient feels that they take too long.

February 2017
Wonderful caring doctor and represents your company well

February 2017
Although I dearly miss Dr. DiAngi--I am very well pleases with Dr. Chawla. Think she will a great Doctor for me and my health concerns.

February 2017
Dr. Chawla is an outstanding doctor. She is courteous, funny, very knowledgeable, caring, and most of all treats you with dignity and respect. I tell all my friends I have the best doctor, she is wonderful.

February 2017
Dr. Chawla is awesome and you are fortunate to have her as a doctor in your clinic.

January 2017
I have enjoyed getting to know and trust Dr. Kavita Chawla. She is very professional, friendly, and kind. She brings a lot of positive energy into the room. It was difficult to not have Dr. Sandra Di Angie, but Dr. Kavita Chawla is a good fit for me.

January 2017
I think Dr. Chawla is fantastic.

January 2017
Nothing bad

January 2017

January 2017
Excellent.

December 2016
Dr. Chawla is fantastic at her job.

December 2016
Care provider did not make me feel at ease with my concerns. Overall not the worst, but not a care provider that I would recommend.

December 2016
Excellent explanation of medical issues.

November 2016
I am confided to my care provider and will be to recommend Dr. Kavite Chaula to others.

November 2016
I´ve just recommended Dr Chawla to a friend who is switching to her. I´m so grateful I found Dr Chawla as I was very unhappy with my other primary at VMason.

November 2016
Dr. Chawla is great. I feel my concerns are addressed with care and empathy. She never seems hurried or rushed, either.

November 2016
I am so pleased that Dr. Chawla is my new doctor. I am looking forward to a very long relationship as patient and Dr. I trust she respects my philosophy on Western medicine and alternative healing options.

November 2016
I´ve been looking for a PCP for the past three years - I finally found her in Dr. Chawla. She´s friendly and knowledgeable. I look forward to working with her on reactive and preventative care in the coming years.

November 2016
I really, really like Dr. Chawla.

November 2016
Dr Chawla should be the standard for all doctors practicing. She is kind, thorough, compassionate and straight forward. She has more respect for the elderly and the family members who care for them than I have ever seen. In a world where our elderly folks are so disregarded and ignored she is a safe harbor!!!! I have no idea what we will do if we ever loose her. I hope many interns get to walk along side of her so they can see what a true advocate for medical care looks like! I cannot say enough about what a blessing she is to me( as my doctor) and how my aging parents love her and feel heard by her.

November 2016
Felt both seen and heard by Dr. Chawla. Felt I had her undivided attention while in her office.

November 2016
Impressed with Dr. Chwala´s knowledge of the science behind my issues and her willingness to share that knowledge. Also that she respected me enough to take the time to give me background on those issues.

October 2016
Doctor/Assistant very professional.

October 2016
I am so grateful I found Dr. Chawla!!!!!!!!!!

October 2016
My first visit with Dr. Chalwa so we had time to get acquainted. her suggestions solved my problem.

October 2016
Doctor explained if I am in pain or need to be seen for me to ask to speak with her nurse, that I should not have to wait two weeks for app.

September 2016
I felt like Dr. Chawala was willing to listen to everything I had to say, she never made me feel rushed or that she wasn´t interested in my comments or questions. While I miss Dr. Deangie I have recommend Dr. Chawala to quite a few friends already. She made me feel important and that she really was interested in what I had to say.

August 2016
Where to start!! Dr Chawla is engaging, listens well, remembers details from previous appointment discussions, caring, thorough, prompt in follow-up, comfortable, professional, the list goes on. I am extremely happy with her as my primary doctor.

August 2016
glad she will be my new doctor

August 2016
I think Dr. Chawla is great; she listens, she does not appear rushed, she is kind and she is an excellent practioner.

August 2016
This was my first visit with Dr. Chawla, so will have to see what my confidence level in her will be. I do like her very much after this first visit. After 25+ years with Dr. DiAngie, I will need to get to know Dr. Chawla but feel good about choosing her as my new primary care physician.

July 2016
she was wonderful as always, very kind and attentive, and genuinely concerned about my well being, I have seen a few doctors and she is by far my favorite, I will always come see her and your staff at Virginia mason and definitely have already recommended her to many of my friends and family....

July 2016
I am a former patient of Dr. Sandra DiAngi and feared I would not find a doctor as good as her. I do believe I have found that doctor with this appointment.

July 2016
This was my first visit with Dr. Chawla as am transferring care from Dr. Diangi. Dr. Chawla was very thorough, knowledgable, straightforward, and a good listener.

July 2016
dr chavala is professional and wonderful - I like her very much!

June 2016
I was absolutely delighted to meet Dr. Chawla. She was warmly welcoming, recognizing that I had previously seen Dr. Diangi. I was apprehensive about having to choose another doctor but could not be more pleased with my "choice." I have already told a couple friends who were also Dr. Diangi´s patients and recommended Dr. Chawla.

June 2016
Wonderful doctor.

June 2016
I absolutely love Dr. Chawla - I hope she is my doctor for years to come.

June 2016
amazing skilled internist

I had unanswered questions due to new caregiver/patient appointment.

June 2016
First visit with Dr. Chawla (I was Dr. DiAngi´s patient) and I was very impressed with her

June 2016
I have had a great experience with Dr. Chawla. She takes the time to explain everything to me, and as a medical student I appreciate the teaching she does. I definitely would recommend her to anyone I know.

June 2016
excellent

June 2016
My internist for the past 30 years had to quit suddenly due to illness so this is a new internist for me. She was excellent. Very compassionate, caring & knowledgeable.

June 2016
I was concerned about finding another doctor after 33 years with Dr. Diangi, with whom I had great confidence. However, I was very impress with my new provider. She listened carefully and was thoughtful and reasoned in her responses.

June 2016
I´m really confident having Dr. Chawla as my primary physician.

June 2016
Was not able to ask all my questions or get answers for a foot problem. Was told my time was up and we would have to talk about it in 2 months. That was not appreciated.

June 2016
When I told Dr. Chawla that I was having shoulder issues, she did a few movement checks & advice which I appreciate.

February 2016
Dr. Chewla is exceptionally kind, understanding & caring. I was actually worried when Dr. "B" (June B.) retired but I have a feeling that she took time to do her best in referring her patients to someone who she felt would best deal with her patients. I know my situation is difficult but Dr. Chewla is doing a remarkable job & I appreciate her understanding.

February 2016
I feel like I have found a care provider who is teaming up with me to address all of my health concerns.

February 2016
Dr. Kavita is always very kinda and easy to talk with. She makes sure that I understand what is going on and that all my questions are answered

January 2016
Dr Chawla is the best it gets. She´s understanding, attentive, explains things in ways that make sense but still doesn´t leave out important information, she is empathetic, kind, and just a doctor I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

January 2016
I have recommended Dr. Chawla to several of my co-workers!

January 2016
Dr. Chawla was wonderful, listening to my concerns and responding in a patient, kind, understandable way. I asked her to be my primary care doctor and I´m happy to have her.
