Dr Chowdhury is the best. Actually cares about his patients, at least that's my experience with him. He also knows my health history and focuses on the appropriate issues. And tells me the things I need to hear even when I maybe don't want to hear it. Explains things well and makes sure I understand what he's saying.

Dr C has been a very good doctor for my father. We were disappointed with the referral to the Geriatric Doctor and the lack of communication from the Geriatric administration team, but Dr C has been a great primary care manager.

He was thorough, kind, clear, and informative without being condescending. He made sure I had my questions asked before I left. That made me feel "heard" and cared for.

Dr. Chowdhury is not my PC but was able to fit me in to be seen on short notice. He was helpful & informative. I do think a female dr. might have had a better grasp of my issue, but he did an acceptable job considering.

It was difficult finding the entrance to the building, which made me late for my appointment, and had I not called for help earlier, the receptionist I talked to when I showed up almost told me to leave and make a new appointment. Thankfully, one of the other receptionists recognized my name and heard from someone else that I was late because I got lost, and that it was ok for me to come in for my appointment anyway.

The Dr and I communicated well during this Medicare required visit. He asked follow up questions about a health issue I had visited him about about 6 wks earlier. It was clear he had reviewed my questionnaire. He discussed my ongoing issues related to my ambulation and my bladder and asked me to see the specialists again.

I am thoroughly annoyed that the receptionist insisted upon having insurance information over the phone to make an appointment - period. I am further annoyed that the electronic check-in for that appointment then asked for the insurance information. And am even more annoyed that upon arrive the receptionist wanted the insurance information again. Stop wasting my time!I am also annoyed that the receptionist wanted to scan my ID; I do not trust you nor any other company to maintain the security of my Information. This practice should cease!I am also annoyed that to schedule a physical with a new doctor, since my regular doctor is retiring -unfortunately for me because he is awesome-, that I have been classified a new patient and am expected to visit with the new doctor before I can make an appointment for a physical - I will report this to my insurance company and I will consider finding another provider enitrely. Again - wasting my time and now my money too!

Dr. Chowdhury: Listened very carefully to my health concerns. He was very thorough with asking me questions to assess and advise to help me. He made very clear, and encouraged me about what next steps he recommended I take. Dr. Chowdhury was very quick to follow up and message me on MyChart with his assessment of my lab/x-ray test results. I would and could not ask for better care/service.Debbie (Med Assist): Awesome as well! Very professional, courteous, caring.

He was pushing for me to get the Covid vaccine both visits. This is not something I want to get. My choice, and after having Covid I think I believe I have natural immunity. I see too many people that got the shot get bad reactions and a lot of people I know still got Covid and some very seriously so I'm not convinced the shot is that effective and way my odds against it. I'm not against vaccines but this one I have my doubts. He recommended I get the pneumonia shot at my last visit because of my history which I did.

Every staff member at this practice was especially kind and gave me confidence in the care I was getting. Dr. Chowdhury spent more time with me than any doctor I have seen in decades. I very much appreciated his listening and opinions on my care. He answered all of my questions. I am very happy I chose him as my PCP.

I was alarmed that this Dr. Incorrectly diagnosed my with class 2 obesity due to poor clinical skills. [Personal information removed] He told me several times in the apt. That I needed to lose weight and did not use his basic clinical skills to realize the BMI on EPIC was wrong and and failed to take the opportunity to correct this. If he can make this simple mistake, what does that say about his clinical reasoning skills for more complex and serious health issues?

Doctor did not know much about my particular health issue, even though he tried. Also all your doctors are keen on recommending colonoscopy and mammogram every time we see them, even though our current health issue is unrelated to it. We want our current health problem solved before heading off for routine colonoscopy or mammogram.

The visit was great. The MA and the DR we're very professional and knowledgeable and friendly to an elderly lady. But the office phone rep when my daughter called twice and got a hold of the same rep and both times she was very rude and snippy and refused to listen to what my daughter and when ask for Dr chowdhury's MA voicemail. Rep said no, she can not do that.I feel if you're going to work at the front desk, you need to have a little patience especially when a lot of patients are elders, they can not respond as quick as those younger people.

I do not like when in your initial questionnaire you ask what gender I was, Including a gender that does not exist, and your office being a doctor office knows that they only exist X and Y chromosomes. By doing that you are playing a game that should not be played by people of science.

The sneeze shield at receptionist check in was not secured. I put my purse on counter to get papers out and the shield got knocked over and landed on the receptionist computer and knocked everything off and onto the receptionist, for whom it was a traumatic experience. I felt badly for her as she was quite shaken. I don't think she was Injured. But this can't be safe as there Is little room for error. It appears to be a place to lay papers or purse. The next person in line sat her purse there too. I cringed to think it would happen again, and from the comments between both receptionists this was not the first incident. Better fix this!

Pretty standard visit to look at an injury the prior day. The provider asked if I would like to go to PT which I did. However, after discussing the options he ended up sending me to a place that doesn't accept my insurance. Needless to say, that was disappointing. I think it is on the provider, not the insurance company as I then looked at the site to see other options and saw that the place he referred me was not listed.

Dr Chowdhury has been my and my husbands PCP for several years, and we chose to follow him when he recently changed practice location, due to the quality of care he has provided in the past. My husband has been extremely I'll for a few years, and we value the Dr's ability to assess the need for a specialist, and his medical assistant and he are easily accessible in times of crisis with a depth of knowledge We must be able to depend on. We wouldn't think of changing Dr's and are thankful Dr C is a caring and dedicated provider.

I waited for 20 minutes despite the fact that I had the first appointment of the day. I was told that the MA or the doctor were often in later. I find this incredibly disrespectful. My time is valuable and I am paying for care, not the other way around. This lack of discipline and the lackadaisical attitude exhibited by the staff are unacceptable.
