Do NOT go to this doctor! He is beyond rude, pompous, and defensive. Does not listen and has no interest in helping patients. After one shirt consult and one test, I was told he could do nothing with my symptoms. During the consult he said I could have MS or silent migraines. This time he said it is chronic anxiety, though I am in my mid forties with no history of the disorder, only sudden neurological issues that are severely impacting my life. Find someone else. As bad as it gets here.

Dr. Chowdhrey is a interesting man quiet soft spoken . I came to him very concerned. He gave me some basic knowledge on seizures and I went on my way . He then saw a 3 second video a seizure I was having and said now I think you don't have seizures . OK..he would only shake my husbands hand and when I asked questions he started yelling at me like I have no rights . It's horrible . His staff is efficient and friendly . I'm only looking for care abs a plan . Don't go there

He told me that there were no tests to tell why there was spasming and involuntary movement from my back down to my foot, after being badly misdiagnosed and left neglected and abandoned after a multi-injury trauma left me completely disabled. My medical record noted that I was faking this symptom, although he prescribed a medication often used for nerve pain and neuropathy, while instead saying that I had been diagnosed with a mental illness I had never been diagnosed with. Hiding a misdiagnos

When Dr. Chowdrey entered the room he didn't even speak to me. He just sat down at his laptop and started typing away. Minutes later he turns and says, Ok. and just stared at me to start talking. I discussed my situation, he didn't say a word or ask questions, didn't examine me at all. He said it was probably migraines and put me on a prescription I need to take for the rest of my life. WITHOUT an examination. He was rude, unhelpful, and unsympathetic to my issues and pain. Disgraceful.
