First class surgeon! Referred to him by my regular doctor's office for a hernia repair. They will get a 5 star for this referral! He has excellent respect also, by the nursing and anesthesia staff and others at St David's Medical Center, south Austin. Highly recommend that you put yourself in his care when needed!

Cannot say enough about the wound care Dr. Choudhry and his staff gave to me when it seemed like nothing was going to end the infection in my back from an unrelated surgery. Dr. Choudhry was involved initially as a consultant but after about 45 days, it became apparent that something other than antibiotics had to be done. He took me into surgery and found an internal stitch that had become infected that was causing the never ending drainage from the wound. After a few weeks all is well again.

Dr Choudhry performed a Laproscopic Hernia Repair on me one week ago today. From the first appointment in early December to the Surgery on December 28th everything went so smoothly it made it bearable having a hernia... He took the time to explain fully the entire procedure even a display of the materials used in the procedure. He gave me confidence in his ability to perform the procedure with my best interest in mind.

Dr. Choudhry performed surgery on me a few short weeks ago. Everything from the original conversation with him, his staff, the surgery, and the follow up, was very professional and friendly. I will definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

The whole process was 5-star+ ! The front office and nurse were kind, very accessible and helpful. Dr. Choudhry took the time answer all of my questions, always had a friendly demeanor and did a great job on my inguinal and belly button hernia surgeries, utilizing latest/greatest technologies. I strongly recommend Dr Choudhry for any type of hernia surgery.

Dr. Choudhry’s experience and knowledge instilled my confidence. He is a pleasant and patient doctor, who was never condescending as he more than adequately answered my multitude of questions during pre and post-surgery appointments. His staff was responsive, personable and very helpful.

Dr. Choudhry was an excellent doctor and took very good care of my son, but his nurse at the front desk was one of the rudest person we have met. She was nice in the begining and then felt the need to voice her opinion to my son after his surgery in a manner that was unexceptable and continued to talk to us to the point that I finally was fed up and tried to contact Dr. Choudhry and inform him of her behavior. He was feeling very uncomfortable at the idea of walking back into the office to see D

Dr Choudhry is an excellent surgeon. I am so pleased with the results of my surgery. He explains the surgery in a very thorough manner. His surgical technique is excellent - I healed very rapidly. I would highly recommend him for hemorrhoid surgery. My experience with the TDH surgery was remarkable. If I had known about this surgery previously, I could have avoided years of pain.

Not only do I trust Dr. Choudhry with my own health care needs, I also recommended him to my own mom. He took her into his hands in a very difficult situation, CANCER, and made her feel like she would get through everything OK. He always put her needs and opinions first and never pushed anything on her that she did not want. For that, I thank you Dr.Choudhry, without you, I may not have my mom anymore! Thank you for being there for me and my mom!

Horrible Guy. Almost killed my son. Gave wrong instructions post surgery. Huge infection as a result and urgent care required while traveling in California. Completely unresponsive. Will file complaint with medical board. Not interested in a suit but hope his license is revoked or formal reprimand is given.
