I don't understand the bad reviews. I've been seeing Dr. Chaudhary for over 10 years. He's been a life saver for me. He is most humble, kind, knowledgeable and understanding. He will do anything within his abilities to help you with your issues. His staff is super pleasant and accommodating. There is an occasional wait but I feel that it is worth that. I highly recommend Dr. Chaudhary.

I moved to the area and came from a great specialist and started seeing Dr. Chaudhary over a year ago. I've mostly been continuing the regimen I was already on, but Dr. Chaudhary has been great when something needs to change. He asks a lot of questions and then provides options for what I want to do and if there's an issue, he is quick to help.

Went to him because he took my medicare insurance plan. Have had several visits with him and I don't think he every actually looked at me. He kept his head down looking at paperwork each time. Everytime I had an appointment, my chart was lost. He is not friendly, at all. The only good thing I can is the lady at the front desk is very friendly and courteous and scheduling with her was not a problem at all.

Excellent Psychiatrist. A man of few words, but he knows much about psycho tropic.medicatiom, plus, he is not a Dr. Feel Good, don't expect mounds of Xanax and Valium. He gives you the appropriate dose and if something is wrong he quickly corrects the problem. The staff is kind and friendly, they are prompt and assertive. All and all a great experience.

Experienced doctor he will work with you and do the best he can to get the right medication regimen for your special needs (adult) child He has a new medical assistance/front desk person in his Chester office she's very nice/ professional as well. He sees patients with different needs, ages with and without special needs in his office. You may have to get used on how he communicates/ get back with you but in the end you can always reach his assistants and get an appointment relatively soon.

He is uncaring about his patients. He will not return phone calls to patients or pharmacies. Worst experience by far from any doctor I've had.
