Cuckoo Choudhary, MD
I was born and raised In India, and went to medical school there. I got married in the last year of medical school, and soon thereafter, headed over to the USA to pursue further training. I did my residency in Internal medicine at the Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, a Philly suburb, and then proceeded to complete a GI fellowship at Thomas Jefferson University in the same city. After finishing my fellowship, I stayed on as a faculty at Jefferson where I am able to combine my immense love for teaching and learning along with seeing patients. I have been at Jefferson for the last 17 years, and I love it there. I absolutely love Medicine, and love GI, and given another chance, I would choose gastroenterology as my specialty without a blink. I believe strongly in clinical diagnosis, and know that even in the year 2017, history remains the most important part of patient-physician interaction. I consider the art of medicine more important than its Science, as it not only helps us care for the patient, but gives us an opportunity to learn from them, more than they can ever learn from us. I love Philadelphia, and although I live in New Jersey with my husband and two children, I consider Philly my home.
