in Munster, IN |
Dr. Chowdhury has cared for my son and daughter from the time they were born, a period of nearly 10 years. He is an excellent and careful physician who is genuinely concerned about the children under his care. Unlike several other physicians in his group, Dr. Chowdhury can be reached in case of an emergency during off hours and on weekends. In my view this demonstrates an unusual and exemplary level of commitment to his patients and their families. Very highly recommended!

Extremely unprofessional! I felt my money was wasted. Very aggressive and rude.
