Dr. Chowdhury seemed confident and knew what he was doing. He took the time to listen to me and understood exactly what I was talking about. He made it seem like he will definitely be able to help me improve mysymptoms over time. He wants to work on things slowly and properly and came up with a plan instantly. Let’s see how it goes I will write another review after my next check up.

2 out of 3 of his office staff was pleasant and helpful. However, the third person should have stayed home. She had as much personality as my big toe and her attitude preceded her when she entered the room. The doctor should know, incompetent staff members can DESTROY your business!!

My wait time was 40+ minutes for a fruitless 10 minute exchange with Dr. Chowdury. A recommendation : if a prior visit with a PCP is essential to make tangible action steps with a patient : let s/he know beforehand. Andhe seemed more interested in a battle of wits than a serious discussion on my concerns regarding ear ringing and throat discomfort. To be clear : reception and staff (e.g., Terry) were delightful and kind. I'll be looking elsewhere for my next ENT visit. Just politely declined to schedule a follow-up.
