Its only later I found his profile i I had visited dr choudhuri some days back. I heard about from one of my neighbours who was treated by him. He gave me excellent reviews about him. So i went to him. Its only later I found his profile in Practo and thought that I must write a review about him. My 17 year old daughter was suffering from severe right shoulder pain and stiffness for last few months. She could not move her arm, couldn't write properly, couldn't eat. sometimes she couldn't even hold pen or pencil. She couldn't give her school exam because of this pain. I took her to a renowned orthopedic of this city, who did lot of tests, x-rays, even ct scan with contrast of right shoulder, did not find anything. He suggested few painkillers, none of them helped. He suggested physiotherapy, which actually increased the pain. One night my daughter woke up from her sleep and started shouting and crying because of her pain. Thats when I decided to see dr choudhuri.
When i took her to see him, within minutes he diagnosed that she is suffering from 'Subacromial bursitis', without even seeing her old reports! He told me that reports should be normal in this disease, only abnormality can be found in MRI, which was not done yet! He examined her for sometime, told that there is nothing to worry, and she would need some local steroid injections in shoulder, along with some oral tablets. No need to do MRI now. It got me scared. He reassured me that there is nothing to be scared of. He explained the disease to me and my daughter with diagrams and urged us to go through internet to learn more about the disease. He told that she would need 3 injections at 3 weeks interval. My daughter refused to getthe injections. So he gave her some oral drugs and told her to go through intenet and youtube, to learn more about the disease. After coming back home, she immediately started searching in net and found out that dr was right. Steroid is the treatment. After a lot of searching in web and youtube videos, she was convinced and went back the next day for injections.
Dr choudhuri himself gave the injection, cleaned the area before and bandaged it afterwards. He allowed my wife to be present during the procedure, which was really very reassuring, as my daughter was really scared. After 10mins of the injection, for the first time in a long time, she told me that she was not feeling any pain. That night she slept so peacefully. Next day, the bandage was removed, and she moved her arm so freely, combed her hair on her own!! Last week she got her 2nd injection. Its been a month now and the pain is just gone. It was so relieving to see her smile now before her exams. Thank you dr for giving my daughter her future back. I really recommend him to everybody regarding his treatment skills.

My mother suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, father from osteoarthritis. They have visited multiple doctors, without much relief of pain. Someone suggested knee replacement which my father didn't want.
We visited Dr both in loknath medical hall & health etc. I must say his clinic health etc is much bigger & spacious. Dr choudhuri throughly examined my parents, looked into all their old files. He repeated few tests & xrays which were not done before, or done a lot before. Recent tests were not repeated.
He told that my mother was having rheumatoid arthritis, knee osteoarthritis, osteoporosis. My father was having severe both knee osteoarthritis. He gave medicines & exercises for my mother, and suggested physiotherapy.
For my father he gave some injections which he called viscosupplementation. The injections were costly, was given by him only in the knees. Then he told to follow up after 3 months (to my surprise). And I must say, the injections worked like wonders. He gave total of 5 injections, one every week. And my father is now feeling much better. He is able to walk without any stick, climb stairs, much less pain. My mother also felt much better with her treatment.
The good thing is he was always available over phone. He even visited my father once at home, when he fell ill with fever. He has now become our family physician. My fathers blood pressure, mothers diabetes all are under his treatment now. And my parents are really feeling much better. His approach, his behavior all are just remarkable. And he always adjusts his times according to his patients convenience. I am really lucky to find such a nice doctor. Thank you practo.

I am a patient of diabetes, high blood pressure, gout and other cardiac ailments for some time now. I have visited multiple doctors, all of whom suggested various tests and medicines. But sadly none of I am a patient of diabetes, high blood pressure, gout and other cardiac ailments for some time now. I have visited multiple doctors, all of whom suggested various tests and medicines. But sadly none of the combinations could control my BP or reduce my sugar levels. My BP was persistently around 160-170/100-110, fasting sugar was 182, HbA1c 10.6.
Then I found Dr Choudhuri in practo. Called him. He asked which time would be good for me. and according to my convenience, he suggested clinic location and time. When I visited his clinic, he took his time listening to my problems, looked into all my old reports and prescriptions. He explained all the problems I was having, some were due to my diseases and some due to side-effects of existing drugs. He suggested insulin, which I was reluctant. So he modified some of my existing medications, added a few, combined some of them. I used to take 14 tabs before visiting him, he made it 9, cut out few unnecessary drugs. He explained the side-effects and need of each drug. We spent nearly 30mins in his clinic.
And I must say his prescription was very neat and clean. I had no difficulty in understanding his handwriting or names of the medicines (in my experience, most doctors have illegible handwriting). He clearly wrote directions for each medicines, when to take them.
After 1 month, my fasting sugar came down to 122. At 3 months, my HbA1c is 5.4. Bp has come down to 130/90. I could not expected any better result. And he has already started reducing the doses of the drugs, has stopped one costly drug altogether.
The best thing is he is always available on his phone. I called him in few odd hours. He always picked up and responded kindly & calmly without any irritation. I am really pleased to have found such a nice doctor. Thank you Practo for this.

I visited my local phys I have been under treatment of Dr Choudhuri for almost a year now. For a long time , I had this severe joint pains in all over my body and it was gradually increasing over time. I visited my local physician who did few tests. To learn I was RA factor positive was one of the most difficult experiences of my entire life. I googled about it and found horrible depressing updates. I thought my entire life was going to get ruined, as I heard that it can not be cured. And I wasn't even married!!
My physician suggested a rheumatologist and I found Dr Choudhuri. God bless my luck that I found him on right time. He comforted and convinced me there was hope I could actually lead a normal life. He explained the disease to me, what it can do, and what can be done to prevent progression. He did few more tests and explained them to me.
He did an echo himself and tole me i had some fluid collection around my heart and lungs, along with few other problems. I was scared, but he explained so simply with diagrams. As the disease was caught early he designed an early and aggressive treatment program for me. A lot of drugs were there initially, but with time numbers reduced. Now after a year, i am only on 3 medicines, pain free, almost symptom free.
He was always available, always polite, took time to listen to my problems. I called him when i was out of Kolkata, he advised drugs over phone. I mailed him, he replied. His brilliant research with facts and figures made me trust him. A true gentleman. I wholeheartedly recommend him for all medical problems.
