Poor patient advocacy. Attempted four different occasions on phone to resolve a referral authorization issue before my scheduled appointment. Ended up just cancelling the appointment. Will go elsewhere for my future hematological medical needs. Appears may be an understaffing problem?

I have seen this doctor twice and both times he was very brief and seemed uncaring. He does not like to be questioned. He thinks he’s right about everything and disregarded anything I said. The first visit he asked what I thought was causing my problem. I told him what I had thought and he quickly and rudely said no that can’t be it. Seems like he asked me just so he could tell me I was wrong. He kept telling me that my problem is likely caused by an autoimmune disorder. I have previously been tested for this by a rheumatologist and my bloodwork was all normal, but as I said he disregarded anything I said to him.

Not interested in patient-centered care. He can not be questioned and has to be right. "She is just a nurse and does not understand." He told my parents when I have my masters, am oncology certified, am a nurse navigator, and researched my questions with peer-reviewed journals and received 2 opinions from my local doctors who work in a bigger more world-renowned facility than Dr. Chaudhry. He does not give a true informed consent, only what he thinks is right and not what may be better for the individual. He was nice at the first visit and then cold and short after I had questioned his thinking and wondered about other routes. Do not cross him or else!

Dr. Chaudhry was my oncologist. I had had brain surgery and he dismissed my concerns about mental changes, until I started having seizures. He announced me cured and said MRIs wouldn't show return of the cancer so I stopped having them, and then the cancer returned in the same spot and was indeed visible. Our appointments were short and useless. There was no waiting time because he had me in and out in five minutes and must have done the same with all his patients.
