“Dr. Chowdhury was so easy to talk to and very caring. I was worried about how she would be because this was my first visit and I have had doctors in the past who were very judgmental about things that have happened in my life. She was not judgmental at all and was very compassionate which helped me be able to open up. I really appreciate the way she treated me.”
