Michael has been under Dr. Chaulagain"s care since 2017. He is an excellent doctor going way beyond his duties to help Michael. Mike needs phlebotomy every 3 months and since he has Autisms, phlebotomy becomes difficult but doctor Chaulagain makes sure that Michael is taken good care in the Phlebotomy department. He cares a lot about my son and for that I am very grateful. One of the best doctors at Cleveland Clinic Florida.
