If I could give no stars I would, saw him a few years back and he had already judged me when he walked in . I was there with my father trying to find out why I was in chronic pain all the time, he seemed to think I was drug shopping and " you look fine" and " I can't give a diagnosis" he responsed along with maybe I had fibromyalgia, was later found I had Late Stage Lyme Disease, Biotoxin( Mold) Poisoning and Osteoarthritis, which all cause Systemic Body Pain... he didn't want to have to think.

Dr. Choudry is knowledgeable, warm and thorough pain management physician. He explains what and why/or why not he plans to preform a procedure in ways that are easy to understand by the patient. I would recommend him to anyone possibly needing his services.
in Chapel Hill, NC |
He is only about what the workers comp. and drug companies would like him to push. He looks at you like like you are nothing and will not be anything compared to him. He asked me what will help with pain and I told him what has helped then he said that I am not going to give you that and there is nothing I will do for you. You need to find another pain Dr. that you can work with. He prejuges people on the first visit.

Dr. Choudry has been nothing short of amazing in regards to my treatment. He listens to your issues and acts upon them accordingly. He is kind and caring to your needs and aggressive in trying to get results. So glad to have him as my Dr. and I would highly recommend him. Thank you for your continued support
