The doctor is a life saver. My nephew (Ritwik Mandal) was suffering from high fever for almost a month with red patches throughout his body, swollen lymph nodes. Once the biopsy report came negative for Lymphoma and TB - the doctor asked for several blood tests and later SLE was diagnosed. The patient was admitted to the hospital under his care for steroid treatment for 6 days. The patient started recovering from fever and red patches within next 2-3 days. The doctor was very friendly and approachable over phone and whats-app and helped us to understand about the ongoing treatment process.
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.
My brother Sidhartha went to the doctor, he had fever and cough and joint pain. In past he had some accident. The moment doctor came to know about cough and fever. He didn't listen anything else and asked for covid test. I understand in this pandemic we all should be careful and this can be doctor one of the first step to look into the patient case but the way my brother got treated was unacceptable. Didn't ask any other arithiritis question
