  13. Dr. Choudhury, I will miss our long talks when I would come into your office,
    you always took your time with each of your patients and made each one feel special. you were such a great friend and always talked about your children. They were blessed to have such a wonderful mother. You will always be in my heart and prayers.

  14. Nahoor – You have really captured Dr Choudhury’s inner and outter beauty in your portrait. Thw world would be a bettr place if more people had Dr Choudhury’s compassion for others.

  15. Your portrait really encompasses the compassion, kindness and subtle humor that Dr. Choudhry had. She was with me throughout the most important times in my life and for that I will always be grateful. She was and will always be my most favorite doctor and one of the most humble, intelligent, calming & kind people I will ever know. She was always an angel to me on earth and is now one in heaven. She will never know how important she was to me and so many, many others. I am so very blessed to have known her and to have her as my doctor. I will always treasure her warm smile, sweet humor and endless compassion. May God bless her and her family & friends … she will always have a special place in my heart.

  16. Absolutely one of my favorite and most respected people I have ever met – Her kind heart and gentle spirit radiated from her in everything she did – She was there to deliver both my of my boys, through my pain and fear she consoled me – She had a gift at putting people at ease and making them feel safe – She always remembered details about my family, asking questions and sharing wonderful stories about her beloved family. She even rallied for me when I shifted careers and returned to school – I can only hope to make 1/8 of an impact on my patients as she made on hers -She became my entire family’s doctor and we all feel as if we have lost an important memeber of our family – She will never be forgotten – God bless her and her family…..

  17. Dr. Choudhury will be with us always. Her kind, passoniate way will be treasured by all she touched. I and many others will miss her very much. I will continue to keep her in my heart and mind. God bless Dr. Choudhury and her children.

  18. Dr. Choudhury has a very special spirit. She touched many lives. She was blessed with bringing many beautiful babies into this world. She was always there for her patients. We will all miss her tremendously.

  19. With words I can’t describe how much I am going to miss her. She truly was an amazing woman/doctor! She was such a huge part of my family’s lives and I will always love and be grateful towards her for that! My prayers and thoughts go out to her and her family.

  20. Dr. Choudhury saved my life. I had a very difficult pregnancy throughout the nine months and then almost died shortly after the delivery of my daughter. I don’t think I would have been able to enjoy the past three years with my daughter if it was not for her. I owe her my life. I was seeing her as a doctor since I was 16 years old and I don’t feel like she was just my doctor, she was family. She was truly the nicest and most gentle person/doctor I knew. She is in a better place now and I know my family will never forget her.

  21. Dr. Choudhury was a kind, caring, compassionate person. She always took time with her patients and made them feel comfortable and secure in her hands. She saw me through a few difficult times and helped me get through them with her sincere manner.
    She always asked about my family, as she even delivered one of my grandsons, and would talk about her beloved children.
    I feel honered to have known her and have her for my doctor. She will be truly missed. She was one of a kind.
    I will keep her and her children and family in my prayers. She is in a better place now and hopefully we will meet again.

  22. Oh my..I just called to make my appointment and had no idea of Dr. Choudhury’s passing. She was a very kind person. I’m so sorry!

  23. 21 years ago today my daughter was born…Dr. Choudhury was right there with me and my husband. I will think of her always on this day!

  24. Dr. Sitara Choudhury was my beloved aunt. She is buried next to another aunt of mine and my mother. She will be in our hearts forever.

  25. Words can’t describe the loss, she was an exceptional doctor in every way ~ the only doctor I have ever known to have such compassion. She will be truly missed

  26. Dr Choudhury was an exceptional doctor in every way with such expertise and compassion I am speechless to hear that she has passed away. She will be so greatly missed by all her patients and all who she gave a listening ear and caring heart to…

  27. Dr. Choudhury saved my aunt’s life and made it possible for me, my sister, and my cousins to join this world. She was even my doctor for a while, and not only did she remember my mother and delivering me, but she was kind, compassionate, and caring. My family will never forget her.

  28. Dr. Choudhury was my doctor for my two children and for many years. I was stunned and so sad to hear she has passed. She was always cheerful, professional, and loving and I will never forget her.

  29. How lovely is her spirit. How holy. We are blessed by her to have been in her presence.

  30. I am Dr. Choudhury daughter and I am honored and blessed to have her as my mother.

  31. She was so generous, so kind. A bit of light left my world when she passed away, I am so thankful to have had her for my doctor. God bless her and her family.

  32. I just called her office to make an appt and heard this very sad news. I met her in 2004 when I became pregnant. She helped me through my emotional journey of pregnancy and delivered my beautiful daughter. I always felt like she was put in my life for a reason..to help me get through a pregnancy I didnt think I was ready for. She seemed to understand me and know how to make me feel better.(and trust me I was a bit challenging at times) I feel lucky to have had her part of my life but so very sad that I will never see her again.
    When I lay my head down tonight I will be sure to say a prayer for her.. I am sure she is up there listening..

  33. Happy angel day Dr. Choudhury. You are missed. Thank you for everything. God bless you always.

  34. I was lucky enough to have had Dr. Choudhury as my doctor for close to 20 years, and felt that I had lost a family member when I was told she was not going to be practicing anymore. She was such a caring, compassionate human being, and truly developed a relationship with each of her patients. She saw me through emergency surgery, was extremely gentle even with potentially painful procedures, gave me a sense of trust that all would be well, and never failed to ask about my children (both adopted, so she had not delivered them but knew of them nonetheless). I doubt there are many left like her – thank you, Dr. Choudhury, and rest peacefully.

  35. Tht was my great aunt. She gave birth to me im crying 😦

  36. Dr Choudhury saved my Life. I came into her Office at the end of my strength… I was eveything to everyone and I did not have to say a word. She held me in her arms and said, it’s about YOU now. If you don’t change your life, there will not be a You. Don’t count on coming to see me in a year…. because something will happen and you are to take care of you now. Please take care of YOU, do you understand me? It is about YOU, about YOU, about YOU. I did not even know what “being about me” meant; it took me a few weeks to understand that she cared enough about me to want me to live a healthier life. “I had one year to change the path I was one and my life” she said “if I wanted to look at a healthy future. If I wanted to see my children grow up, and one day my grandchildren to know their grandma….” Today, 7 years later, if I am alive and healthier, it is because a caring woman doctor, took the time to see signs of distress, exhaustion, self denial, abandon, depression lurking, unhealthy and dangerous living, unbelievable stress and a one way solution… she cared enough to take the time to tell me TO LIVE. She deserves my utmost respect and gratitude… its been a rocky road, and a sinuous path to equilibrium but my only regret is that she is not here to see it. Life is not a bowl of cherries at times but ONE little pit that you nurtured can get back to new Life. Thank you Dr Choudhury for the little talks we had… and most importantly the “I mean it” talk on that day of August 2005 when my world wasn’t the only thing falling apart, thank you for caring enough to “catch me” from the free fall. I believe you saved my Life.

  37. I’m not sure what made me think of Dr. Choudhury today but I did. I am writing this long overdue tribute to one of the most caring compassionate person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I too have a similar story, if it wasn’t for this wonderful Doctor my oldest son would not be here. I have not found a replacement for her and I have searched. Rest in peace Dr. Choudhury.

  38. Dr. Choudhury delivered both of my children via c-section. I was scared and nervous and her gentle and calm presence eased my mind. What a wonderful and loving spirit she had. I was truly blessed to have her as my dr. God bless you angel.
