Dr Chaudhury is excellent, he's very personable, explains perfectly, and listens. Last year this time I was in SICU after the team at CC truly saved my life. He and his team are my heroes. My family is forever grateful and I'm a nurse, so it's worse, because I understood all that he was explaining. My situation could have had another outcome--I thank him and his team(s) members daily.
