the MD didn't VERIFY HIPAA the MD didn't disinfect or wash his hands the MD was belittling and nasty and argumentative the MD had zero bedside manner and the office manager stuck by him and now I've been blackballed by the practice which encompasses so many other practices in this region. When does speaking up for our patient rights make us susceptible to slander???

This idiot misdiagnosed my father putting him on Parkinson’s meds whiteout a proper diagnosis. We should have sued him. My father ended up hospitalized as a result. He is a quack!

mixed reviews. I think it depends on his mood or work flow. Lack of info given absolutely, questions not answered yes. Be your own advocate. His PA is helpful. Simple question not answered when does a patient end on medication and start a new one?

I was scared to see this doctor after reading the reviews. I found him to be just the opposite. He walked in introduced himself, shook my hand and then my husband's., He took time to listen to the history of nine years of symptoms. He examined my husband. He took time to know my husband and who he was before his disease changed him. He offered a course of action and why he chose this path. He took time to offer positive action through reasoning stories. In our experience I would recommend him.

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.
