I had a previous colonoscopy with another doctor,that gave me a fear of having this needed procedure done! As it landed myself in a hospital with911 being called.! My primary doctor's assistant recommended Dr.Chowdhury to me.Im very happy she did,as Dr Chowdhury explains everything and reassure you,youll be fine,after following her instructions! She's a very qualified excellent doctor! I would highly recommend her to everyone,that wants the best treatment from a doctor! You'll be Pleased!

Dr. Chowdhury is a very kind and compassionate person and I believe her to be a skilled gastroenterologist. She always listens intently to every concern I have and then gives me feedback that is helpful to continue with my home care regarding my GURD and stomach problems. When I call her to get my RXs refilled, they are called into the pharmacy prompty. When I need a colonoscopy or an endoscopy, I feel like she is careful and considerate when listening to and performing procedures.

No compassion or patience with people that are hard of hearing. She has no time to explain a patients pros and cons of my situation. Rude and above all has no time. My experience with her is only as a doctor in the San Joaquin hospital.

She was excellent in taking care of my husband who was critically ill. As a nurse I recognized her expertise over other physicians. Have recommended her to many people. I have also seen her as my hcp ??
