I was referred by a friend to see Dr. Chughtai for a few bladder-related issues Id been having. He was friendly, warm, professional and thorough. He was able to address my issues and concerns wholistically, as he was a good listener and took his time. I recommend him to anyone looking for a Urologist.

Dr Chughtai is an excellent doctor who communicates with his patients extremely well. My recent Jan 18, 2023 visit with him was very helpful.

Just finished my 9th UTI, 3rd urologist, for 2013. My MS flares with UTI, my Neuro wants to assess condition after Ive been uti clear for 6 months. Dr. Chughtai prescribed urodynamics, sonogram of bladder, and cat scan to make sure I dont have stones. He does not ****foot around UTI, doesnt hem and haw about antibiotic use, either. He wants me to have a bottle of antibiotics on hand if I feel Im getting one over the weekend - because --3 days is to long to wait with a uti--. OMG, he gets it. --Start antibiotics over the weekend, then submit u/a on Monday, and well sort it out from there.-- Weekdays, Im to come into the office, do u/a, and they will prescribe according to culture. IRONICALLY, a 2x daily dose of the super cranberry supplement he gave me, Ellura, is working for now. AND he got all my paperwork in for my catheters in no time. He was recommended me by another MS patient, also with recurrent UTI. She wasnt exagerrating. Come here first for recurrent UTI solution.

This was the first time seeing Dr. Chughtai. He was very attentive to my problem, wasn’t rushing to get out the room. He took his time to explain things an his mannerism was excellent. I left his office feeling great about my visit.

I was referred to Dr. Chughtai by a friend. He was attentive, thorough and addressed my concerns methodically. Since visiting him I have overcome majority of the issues I was dealing with. I recommend him to anyone looking for an intelligent doctor with great bedside manners.

It’s rare to meet someone like him. Extremely caring, compassionate, thorough, funny! He’s very knowledgeable. 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.

I saw Dr. Bilal Chugthai as a referal from another Dr. His staff was very polite and professional. The questionaire was one of the most thorough I have seen and was referred to often during the appointment. He had already spoken to my refering doctor. I live in another state and they squeezed me onto the schedule as I have to leave next week. His staff member held my hand during the exam and was so sweet. He answered all my questions and did not talk down to me especially since I have a healthcare background. This guy is a lights on Doctor. Even though I had to wait, once in the office he is worth the wait and did a complete and thorough evaluation. I would recomend anyone to him, but if you are antsy and dont have the patience to wait if he is behind schedule he is not for you. I am not easily impressed by many doctors, but he is now in my top 10.
