Dr Chaudhari has performed a partial laminectomy on me and then a full lumbar fusion. Not only is he a master of his craft, but his bedside manner and his welcome sense of humor have each time inspired my total confidence and led to totally satisfactory outcomes. My pain has been banished and my strength and range of motion have been restored far beyond my expextions.

When my mother broke her neck at 97 everyone but Dr. Chaudhari wanted to put a collar on her and send her to the nursing home. He took a chance on her and she fully recovered in 4 months! She turned 102 yrs of age this past September 2016. Her neck has never bothered her. I don't think you can find any better then Dr.Chaudhari.

Dr. Chaudhari's skill/knowledge played a major role in my recovering so well and so quickly. I feel that I was blessed to find myself placed in his capable hands. I appreciate your staff for arranging tests and handling insurance procedures with seamless effort. Saying “Thank You” seems so insufficient but I can find no words that truly express my feelings appropriately, so I will stick with with those two simple words with the hope that you know the depth of emotion and gratitude they contain.

Short waits in the office, quick response from his staff and he is surely not one to say " That couldn't happen". While he might want to get rid if me, I am a patient forever.

Dr. Chaudhari is an excellent doctor with a very welcoming, intelligent 'bedside manner'. He is tremendously knowledgeable and takes time answering questions and providing concrete feedback and current practices. I would highly recommend him and his wonderful PA, Stephanie, to anyone needing a neurosurgeon.

I was in so much pain when I finally decided to have back surgery. Dr Chaudhari was great. I have no pain at all and look forward to when I can totally resume all my normal activities - and with no pain

I had severe sciatic nerve pain getting worse. After MRI, my doctor referred me to FWTB&S, recalling how he liked each doctor there - said get the earliest appointment you can - you're in pretty bad shape. I feel lucky I got Dr. Chaudhari - he took 40 min with me explaining the MRI and surgery. The surgery was scheduled quickly at Plaza Med Center - I used Plaza 10 yrs earlier for knee surgery. A little problem due to catheter, but Dr. Chaudhari was terrific; 10/10. I strongly recommend him.

Post surgery Dr. Chaudhari came to the family waiting room delivery great news no complication and removed most of the tumor. That evening he came by to re-check my brother condition in ICU. Thank you Dr.
