Dr. Chowdhury is an outstanding physician and human being. Funny, warm, reassuring, an excellent communicator who explained all aspects of my sonogram, took the time to identify the muscles and nerves we were seeing, so that when we saw the source of the problem in my knee, I felt 100% included (and informed) in my own diagnostic process. He has a gift of involving a patient in their own care and healing, is a wonderful teacher, and in this time of covid I felt safe and reassured every step of the way. The X Ray technicians/staff were also wonderful. Highest recommendation. Rose - July 17, 2020

Dr Chiusdery is an amazing human being As well as a brilliant doctor. I don’t know medical terms excep that I had a sonogram and. Ray of my shoulder. Throughout the appointment his calmness made me feel better. Once when I was crying ( about something else) he saw that I was distressed and sat down In the chait next to me asked if he could help. To me that’s how a doctor should treat his patient! . When I needed surgery for my hand, recommended a doctor who was the head of the department for my surgery. I just think Dr Chowdury is what a doctor should be!!!:
