In addition to Chohan, patients will have access to top vascular/interventional radiologists on staff at OGH.

“We are pleased to officially open the Comprehensive Vascular Center,” Timothy J. Finan, president, chief executive officer, OGH, Upper Allegheny Health System, said. “Dr. Chohan’s three decades of skilled vascular surgical experience to patients in the region will help us provide the very best and most complete vascular care for patients.”

Jeff Zewe, senior vice president, chief operating officer, OGH, stated, “By offering enhanced vascular and endovascular care at Olean General, we are responding to the needs of our community. Patients can expect local care with access to specialists in their field,” 

Chohan said, “One of the most important concerns people have is they don’t want to travel out of the area. At Olean General, we provide state-of-the-art vascular care to our patients locally. We have the expertise and facility to care for patients here where we treat them as people, and know them by name.”

Chohan started his private surgical practice in 1981 after completing surgical training at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He is board certified in general and vascular surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He serves as director of OGH’s Outpatient Surgery Center, president of the Cattaraugus County Medical Society and is a clinical instructor in the Department of Surgery at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
