What People Say About Dr. Tabassum Chowdhury, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

She is intelligent and better at diagnosing than a couple of the other doctors in her group who I am familiar with. However, she is the most rushed doctor I have ever seen, with the least number of words or suggestions. She seems to be constantly overbooked and I feel like I have less than 10 seconds to state my problem, to be followed by the quickest suggestion possible. Yet she is better than a lot of gastro doctors in town, from what I have heard from other people.

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 ??
