Dr. C is a rare bird - above the rest.
He listens, he cares, he doesn't rush anything.regarding the appointment, and for me, he made the most sense of any of the other doctors I have visited for my strange condition. His clarity in suggesting solutions was impressive and I am convinced that I just met the A-team. I'm very very relieved and now look toward a better future. No $hit!

Lymphedema specialist NY
I got referred to dr Chowdhury for evaluation of status of my lymphedema by my surgeon before the totak knee replacement. Had over an hour consultation, he listened carefully to all I had to say and gave his recommendations. On spot, would highly recommend Dr Chowdhury's services for whatever purpose you might get sent to him or he can serve you. Very attentive and extremely knowledgeable.

Best MD I've seen
Dr. Chowdhury had reviewed my chart and a past visit before he entered the exam room. He was warm and friendly, listened carefully to my reason for being there and diagnosed something totally different and possibly serious. I really trust him. He followed up with referrals.

Extremely personable, easy (even fun) to talk with, very comfortable bedside manner—even in virtual visits—and he's generous with his help in the post-visit period. What's more, he inspires confidence.

Dr. Chowdhury definitely is one of my top 2 doctors of all time! I read some of the great reviews. I know that he definitely deserves them and more. In addition, I think he also tries to know his patients not just from the medical point of view but how they are emotionally handling their pains and difficulties. In my case, he surely informs me of all the possible treatments but carefully listens to what I say and lessens my anxiety. I'm always anxious seeing my doctors especially after battling cancer and my fear of its recurrence. I think it is his knowledge, love of what he does and true empathy for his patients that makes him what he is , a great doctor! Cheers to NYP/Weill Cornell for its doctors, nurses and all staff!
