Dr. Ramesh Chawla keeps Milaca healthy for 40 years
Four decades is a long time by most standards, but for Milaca Fairview Clinic’s most familiar face, the past 40 years have flown.
“Boy, you know, I never thought that time would pass and I wouldn’t feel it,” said Dr. Ramesh Chawla of his anniversary with the clinic.
Chawla and his wife Fay came to Minnesota all those years ago — he from one of the largest cities on Earth, New Dehli, India, and she from a small village in the Philippeans. While he made additions to his doctor of medicine degree from the All India Institute of Medical Science by attending medical universities in Canada, Ann Arbor, Mich., and the University of Minnesota, Fay also built upon her career that began at the universal health care provider at the Philippine capital, Baguio General Hospital, by studying at the College of St. Benedict and St. Catherine’s University.
