Johnstown, PA |
Dr. Chowdhry recently performed a very difficult operation on our daughter. Some said his bedside manner wasn't good but as parents we were more concerned about his skills not beside manner. We found him to be responsive to questions and followed up with us personally in the waiting room unlike some other doctors we noticed. They just phoned. If you want a neurosurgeon that is skilled he's the one.

He was unfriendly, and seemed bored.
