Even though it was a virtual visit, he listened very carefully and answered all of my questions.
Dr. Chowdhury was so incredibly friendly, professional and caring; he was an excellent listener and spent as much time as I needed for him to answer my questions and explain my upcoming procedure without seeming rushed or distracted. He has a very calming and reassuring presence which is very important. He and his staff were wonderful in every way.
