best doc ever

December 13, 2017

Dr. Chough seemed very concerned with my symptoms. After EKG and stress test results were negative the concern was more blockages. The choice was to try medication or a heart cath to pinpoint the problems. I elected the medication. Dr. Chough ordered it right away.

December 13, 2017

Dr Chough and entire office staff are excellent. Professional and Caring.

December 11, 2017

Dr. Chough is a very good doctor and I am glad I have him as my cardiologist. Beside the heart health advice, he gave me good advice on another issue I was having.
