Amazing, amazing doctor. He was very personable and gentle. I came to him with a hearing problem that I was almost positive was earwax build up. He was honest with me the whole time he was attempting to clean out my ear, and actually removed the back of an earring from my ear that had to be sitting there for about a year. I will be seeing Dr. Farhad Chowdhury again soon for routine check-ups with my ears and ear cleanings. Both him and his staff made me feel very comfortable and were just so NICE. I would recommend this doctor to anyone, very gentle and well-educated , takes the fear out of doctor visits.

I've had trouble breathing almost my whole life. doctor chowdhery tried a few different options to help me breathe easier. he recommended doing an in office procedure called a turbinate reduction. The procedure took about 10 to 15 minutes. No pain, no discomfort. By the time he finished even though i was numb you could immediately feel a difference. It took about 2 days for the swelling to reduce to feel the full benefits but i can't believe how much better i am breathing. I wish i did this year's ago. The staff is very polite and answer any questions or concerns you may have. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chowdhury and ent and allergy to anyone looking for relief.

This Doctor is an absolute gem! He is kind friendly and thorough. In addition he has the best bedside manner out of any Dr. I have ever been to. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
I had to see Dr. Chowdhury for a nasal issue. First time I was ever there. He was without doubt the most patient friendly physician I have ever experienced. He was very professional yet down to earth and explained all issues and procedures. If you were to read his bio he is very well educated and highly experienced in his field (ENT). It was clear that he had a genuine concern over my health issue and his open demeanor put me at ease in discussing my health issue. Will certainly use him in the future for any related ENT issue that arises.

I was somewhat nervous going in because I had an ongoing ailment that was really bothering me; also Doctor Chowdury is a relatively new doctor so I did not know what to expect. He was extremely friendly and personable and seemed to be very knowledgeable; he also gladly answered all my questions about his background and education. In addition I had another ailment I wanted to discuss--not the primary reason for my visit--and he was glad to spend time talking about that as well. Bottom line he did find what was wrong and so far is successfully treating it he put me at ease and I would definitely recommend him.
Excellent doctor. Extremely knowledgeable courteous and takes the time to explain everything. He found the problem and helped me feel better quickly.
