Since then apart from his private practice, he has been conducting free checkups at his home for patients who otherwise cannot afford to consult him. Apart from his philanthropy in the city, Dr Chowdhury, a specialist in neuro-medicine, is also engaged in treating the poor in various villages of the districts of Burdwan, Hooghly, Howrah and Nadia. He goes around twenty-four villages twice a month. He visits remote places like Kamarkundu, Gudap, Kalna, Bagula, Samudragarh, Nadanghat, Tarakeshwar, Tamluk — places were medical care for neuro-problems are not generally available.Interestingly, unlike most cases, his efforts to reach out to that section of the population which is most neglected, has been an individual effort.
