Dr. Chovatiya came highly recommended to me as a new patient and it was very clear why. He is very professional, caring and experienced. He listened carefully to all of my concerns, gave good, sound advice and answered my questions to my satisfaction. As well, he assured me that he would be researching my particular situation as a result of one of my questions. That shows the level of care and compassion for his patients and love of what he does.
