First I was seen by a resident, who was very good, and grasped the issues immediately. Then when Dr. came in the resident relayed her findings and Dr. then included me in the plan of action. Took plenty of time to cover all my questions and concerns. They wrote down all the suggestions for helping and names of OTC items I could use. Also copied an item which was on the wall, and I suggested that it should be in their handouts, about sleep hygiene.

I am a past patient of Dr. DiAngi. My care for many years with her was stellar. She was with me through some very challenging mental/physical conditions. There is of, course, not one thing I might say that wouldn´t represent superior treatment. I am now seeing Dr. Chawla and feel she is also dedicated to the very best care.

Dr. Chawla is the best care provider I´ve had in my years with VM. She shows that she really cares. She admonishes gently and is excited for your achievements. She listens very well and does not give any impression that you are taking up too much time. I find myself wanting to improve my test results just to see her smile. Rather childish, but there it is. She has a lovely smile. I´ve told her that too.
December 2017
I felt like the doctor wasn´t interested in helping me figure out what´s going on. she said she would do a blood test but it didn´t happen. I really felt almost as hopeless when I left as I did when I arrived.

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 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!!

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,"

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.
