He helped me with something that four other doctors (Urology and OB GYN) did not take seriously. I consider myself extremely blessed to be his patient and would recommend him to anyone. Literally the best doctor I’ve ever met, and I’ve met a lot. seriously." - Self-verified patient on February 3, 2020 via Vitals

For this goal, he is up to date on research and new technologies related to his specialities.

"He spends a lot of time answering all of your questions, always returns a message to call back, has excellent bedside manner, young but extremely knowledgeable with a holistic approach. He evens walks you out of the office to the administrative staff at the end of you’re visit, need I say more about Dr. Chugtai." - 

"Absolutely one of the best physicians I have ever known, and I've known quite a few. Technically, one of the smartest by a wide margin. I would trust this doctor with my life, not just my prostate. Bedside manner is important in this specialty especially if one's never been to a urologist before. Dr. Chughtai could not be any better in this department. He puts the patient at ease, conveys a sense of caring but always at the highest most professional level possible which itself is reassuring. A++" - Ed on Aug 23, 2017 via Healthgrades
