I have been a nurse for a long time. I am not easily impressed by doctors, however, I have been very, very impressed with the Chokka Center. Everyone connected is excellent. The assistant/administration people that you phone are really good: really, really good. They will listen to what you have to say and they respond very empathetically and reasonably. If you need to speak to your doctor right away – they will respond to that. My doctor is Dr. Chokka. I was skeptical at first, slow to trust, I thought I knew best. However, I was slowly, very slowly, completely impressed. Dr. Chokka listens!! He really listened to me. He heard me. He made suggestions and gave opinions, but never pushed them on me. He is now my trusted partner in my quest for good mental health. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and gentle. He is reliable. I feel like I have a “bridge” to safety. Also, I really like that he is holistic and encourages alternative treatments and lifestyle choices that promote good mental health.
