Dr. Kochhar is a Very Talented Thoughtful and Kind Doctor - I feel that he gives me 100% of his attention during my office visits - I will be forever grateful to him for helping me to feel and look better and for being there for me while I am navigating my recovery.

Dr. Anwar is skilled and dedicated at his trade. He is thorough and compassionate and I felt so comfortable having him look at my sinus issues. He's a great listener and takes the time to explain everything in terms I understand. Most of all I appreciate that he did not push procedures or medications on me! I feel like he genuinely cared about my well being and I trust his opinion as he's extremely knowledgeable.

– Roya K.

Dr. Chester Griffiths and his team was Amazing! This is the year of Covid and the only good thing about this year so far is Dr. Griffiths and His Team!!

I only spent 1 night in the hospital. I recovered at home! All is Good!! God bless all of you that helped us.”
