I am glad I consulted Dr SK Chhabra. I am 36 years old and have been suffering from Asthma. My asthma was poorly controlled and I had consulted many doctors without much relief. Dr Chhabra explained to me the nature of the disease and how I can be a partner in controlling my disease. For the first time in my life, I had a lung function test with which the severity of my disease was measured and appropriate treatment with three inhalers was started. Today, I am leading a normal life like any other person and the credit for this goes entirely to Dr Chhabra.
