Dr Chowdhury helped me with discomfort and aches due to arthritis in my right knee. He spent a good deal of time with me, examining my knee and explaining a treatment plan. I found him open to my concerns, easy to talk to and ready to answer my questions. I found him very personable as well.

My recent visit was a pleasurable one with Dr. Chowdhury, he was engaging and listened tentatively to my issue. The doctor made plausible suggestions and gave me leeway with my options. And the end of the visit, Dr. Chowdhury provided me with information and a list of therapists for my medical condition.
