      Dr. Choudhry was wonderful-he took his time explaining the overall procedure answering all my questions in a professional manner. His staff was kind professional just exceptional people. I truly trust Dr. Choudhry explicitly.

      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!

      Staff people are not friendly and do not give out/take and ask right information.
      in Tulsa, OK |
      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
