Have you seen Dr. Tanvir Choudhri?
A Man Who Defines "Doctor",
Posted on October 3rd, 2017
"Doctor" is a teacher, a healer, a source of solace with intellectual integrity. Dr. Choudhri has performed two surgeries, the first not very challenging, the second resulted from his intuition that the obvious clinical inferences overlooked peculiar subtleties that caused clinical disquiet. I felt the meaning of fear when I realized I had a completely unanticipated high cord lesion. Before and after each surgery we discussed my intrapsychic conflicts with control. Our consultations were not only about my body but about my inner self; a philosophical readiness to share inner feelings with each other. Tanvir Choudhri defines “doctor”.
he does not care

yes this doctor does push for surgery. maybe the reviewer below was not pushed, but how can you state that the rest of us are wrong? were you there? I can tell you that when I met with him he showed me my mri and told me that surgery was necessary. when I told asked him what about physical therapy. he made a face and said if I wanted that is fine but to keep in mind that it will not improve it and will get worse. i told him I would think it over and he responded by telling me that the longer I wait, it can not only get worse, but if I fall the wrong way, I could go paralyzed from the neck down. This scared me terribly so I went ahead with it. His nurse is rude and unfriendly and brushes you off like an annoying fly on her tightly buttoned blouse. after my surgery, he never came to see me. I kept asking for him but I was told he was doing another surgery and that he was with patients. excuses all the way through, he ended up sending another doctor to come in and check on me, but he still never came never called nothing absolutely nothing. No one knew what they were doing. one nurse gave me a pillow, the other nurse removed it another nurse gave me a pillow again, because he gave no directions. It wasn't until another doctor came to see me that he specified no pillows. Of course the physical therapist came to see me and told me I could use a wedge pillow when I get home, but the doctor who came in to see me told me no pillows...conflicting information and where was doctor choudhri through out all of this? no where to be found. they even left him messages for an answer and I got no answer. I was told to contact his nurse/assistant....it was liking talking to a hole in the wall. she basically asked me "well what did choudhri tell you" nothing he was never around how many times I had to tell her was beyond me. when I saw him after the surgery it was a pain to deal with his nurse. all you hear her say was "emmmm hmmmmmmm, emmmm hmmmmm" whenever I told her my throat felt like I was choking. she gave me this look like I was a liar or something and gave her famous "emmmm hmmmmm" mentioned it to the doctor....and he completely completely disregarded giving me even the slightest explanation to this. physical therapy was a waste as the therapist had no idea what to do with me because of my throat/neck issues and was sent back to choudhri. phone calls after phone calls...I finally had to resort to emails as my only proof that I'm trying to reach him...only to get a call from one of the women in his office with attitude....and no one cares to squeeze you in for an appointment unless he specifically states it is urgent for them to schedule you...and please don't tell me this is a lie becasue I even brought this to his attention and his attitude was "well I been busy; it's better to see me in yonkers" who can go to yonkers when you don't own a car?! and why make that suggestion? why not deal with your staff? to this date, I still have complications, did he bother to go over my mri with me? did he bother to contact me to let me know he has received the results? no he has not...but I have to chase him around. he may be a great surgeon in his field, but he is a terrible doctor who does not care for you as a human being. you are another subject for him to do his passion on...he doesn't see you as a human and with no compassion. surgery and then he disappears. I regret whole heartedly doing this surgery, and other doctors I go to keep telling me to go back to him because he was the one who performed the surgery. how? he and his office does not even respond or reply, and he even admitted if you want better service go to yonkers...great way to admit your staff at mt. sinai are not the best and you're not willing to correct it. and yes....he did push for surgery. telling someone who says "they will think about it" that if they happen to fall down the wrong way while they're out thinking about it, they can go paralyzed, is a way of pushing...it's instilling fear in you I wish I could give him more stars for the fact that he is a good neurosurgeon, but for the fact that he does not care about his patients (didn't care about me), he pushed for surgery, treated me like I was just another cattle to move along the trail and completely forgot about me and never checked in on me...he gets just 2 stars

problem. He makes it a point that you need surgery and what can happen if it does not get fixed. Did not work. Go for PT, acupuncture, trigger point injections and a few other pain injections.He makes sure he does not work with pain docs. Still suffering. Revision surgery. Still in pain...see another doctor. What an algorithm!Nice way to make millions!
THE BEST NEUROSURGEON EVER!!!!!!

I recently had an appt with Dr. Choudhri and I must say I have never felt more at ease and confident with any other physcian than I do with him, I definetly feel I am in great hands. Dr. Choudhri is intelligent, patient, an amazing physician overall. His staff was helpful and very pleasant to be around. His NP answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable. You are definetly in great hands with Dr. Choudhri
Does not follow up

The doctor does not care after the visit no matter what. He does not even pursue his own plans as if he is not sure. The office almost never returns calls. He does not give enough information before the surgery. He often misleads.
One of the best Dr.'s I've ever met

Dr Choudhri is a gentle, competant,patient,caring,thorough,loyal Dr to his patients and thier families. You understand everything he is saying to you and has the right characteristics to deal with nervous patients. He has performed 2 spinal fusions on my mother and she is fine and was calm before her surgery. Dr Choudhri is a Dr you can trust today and tommorrow.
