Patient Comments (6)
in Monroe WA |
I had emergency surgery two years ago for a ruptured AVM. Subsequently I also had a stroke and several seizures. I also developed aspirated pneumonia. Due to Dr. Chowdary's excellent skill, my family's care and prayers, and God's Grace, I have no residual disabilities at all.
in Seattle, WA |
Great bedside manner. Answers questions thoroughly
in Everett, WA |
I am currently 7 weeks post op from a cervical neck fusion. From the first visit I felt comfortable with Dr. Chowdhary and his staff. He has always had time during my appointments to address all of my concerns. And responds quickly to questions if I call or email him. I am happy to say my surgery seems to have been a success and so far I am feeling really good. I can only attribute this success to my surgeons skilled hands and the care Dr. Chowdhary has provided.
in Redmond, WA |
He was the surgeon who removed my Medulloblastoma and was always very cordial and humorous during our talks both before and after the surgery. He always was always more than happy to discuss any question I or my family had until our curiosity was more than satisfied and we fully understood everything he had explained.
in Sammamish, WA |
Dr. Chowdhary and his entire staff are professional, friendly, accessible and excellent to work with.
