About Me

Looking for a cardiologist that specializes in congestive heart failure? No matter what is causing your heart condition, Mohammed Chowdhury, MD, is here for you at North Central Heart – a division of Avera Heart Hospital – in Sioux Falls, SD. Whether you need a simple stress test or you require a biopsy, Dr. Chowdhury is fellowship trained and offers expert diagnostic care to support a variety of heart conditions.

Looking Inside Your Heart

As a board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Chowdhury is dedicated to treating patients using the latest technology and non-invasive diagnostic techniques. His specialties include diagnosing and supporting further treatment for heart diseases and vascular diseases, along with congestive conditions.

His techniques include:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) or transthoracic echocardiogram (ECHO) for mapping heart rhythms and abnormalities
  • Stress tests to monitor heart condition while exercising heart rate, including blood pressure and breathing to detect artery disease—especially important after heart surgery or heart attacks
  • Biopsies to detect heart conditions
  • Cardiac catheterization and angiogram to detect blood pressure and flow, along with dye-enhanced X-ray images of cardiac chamber
  • Non-invasive diagnostic testing of artery blockage and valvular disease

He was inspired to enter cardiology by witnessing his father’s struggle with a heart attack and ongoing heart care needs. “Medicine is 80% the patient and is 20% the health care team. The patient needs to work together as a team with heart specialists to make the best decisions,” said Dr. Chowdhury.

He has performed cardiology research and has presented on various cardiovascular topics. Dr. Chowdhury has been published in peer-reviewed manuscripts and journals.

In his free time, Dr. Chowdhury enjoys biking and hiking—and exploring the great outdoors. He speaks Bangla, English, Hindi and Arabic.

I was treated very well. The doctor was very well informed. And I respect him and the whole entire people Sioux Falls at Avera. And that's all I got to say. Thank you.

Hi, I just wanted to actually say that always.... Everything's going pretty good. I mean yet but he asked me, if you don't question on, this is my first visit. So course they didn't have my full history. So I've got that's awesome but it's like I said, my first visit so I'm still evaluating so far. You guys look great. So, looking good.
June 28, 2021
People were polite, but because I am not old and frail I felt my possible health issues did not seem that important.
June 25, 2021
Very good experience Questions answered in a manner that is easy to understand. Procedures explained well
June 23, 2021
All were very knowledgeable, helpful, compassionate, caring and professional. Thank you to all who were involved in my care!

I was very pleased with the friendliness toward me by all the personnel.

Overall, my experience was great. The following comments are only intended to provide information for possible improvements. Needing to be a half hour early for the appointment seems a little excessive considering I had to wait in the exam room for about 20 minutes as well. Time spent with the doctor was very minimal. It would be nice to talk a little while longer. He was very busy so I understand that he has to hussle. And, for an annual appointment not much was really done. Maybe that's a good thing. Maybe I don't have anything going on that required more but last time I was there (over two years ago) we did a stress test and I can't even remember what else. I don't feel it is necessary to come in for annual exams if the intent is not to thoroughly check everything out. I may as well wait until I have some symptoms that are really troubling.
June 10, 2021
Yeah, I think Dr. Chowdhury did really well. He seems to know what he's doing, and he's pretty practical and he's pretty open and I appreciate that. Thank you.
June 08, 2021
Everyone I encountered was kind and professional. I was very nervous before my appointment and procedure, but they put me at ease. I thank them very heartily.
May 19, 2021
He was very caring and empathetic, and knew what he was talking about he listened exceptionally well to our concern, and did an excellent job of explaining what was wrong or not wrong with my health condition, and very pleasant, easy to understand, good bed side manner, just had an excellent an appointment with him and wouldn't change anything - very happy with with my care at your facility, thank you.
April 26, 2021
Okay Dr. Chowdhury was very good. So was his niece or nurse and any question I asked they tried to explain and any questions they asked I also tried to explain, so we were trying to work together to get some good results. So I'm very happy with Dr. Chowdhury and his nurse. Thank you. Bye.
April 20, 2021
It was very helpful
April 19, 2021
I think it was, you were very nice and explain things very well and I'm very pleased. Thank you.
April 14, 2021
Everyone was very respectful and helpful. Such a nice team of professionals. Always smiling and kind! ????
March 26, 2021
I feel the Dr. Chowdhury was very knowledgeable about what he was explaining to us and about his knowledge of his job, but I felt like he went through everything too quickly and it was hard to understand, and didn't give us really that much time to explain our questions or concerns. I felt like it was a little rushed so - but otherwise everything was great. Thank you very much.
March 18, 2021
The doctor didn't listen to me. He said that nothing had changed yet. I was imminent death possibilities. He wanted me to talk to surgeons. I feel like we have to have surgery if everything's okay and he put them mumble through that and said that I was supposed to have another appointment in a year. That's not imminent death to me and I've been it took over 40 minutes for them to come in to hook a halter monitor me and we just wanted to sit there and I'll do anything. I was very disappointed in it. I don't believe that Dr. Chowdhury is good with you and with patience. I have might heart defect which is Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and I just felt like he was just pushing it to do a surgery.

Dr Chowdhury is an outstanding cardiologist.
March 03, 2021
I was very well satisfied with the Dr. He was joyful. He spoke so I could understand it. He explained things to me. I'm just very well satisfied with him, and I've told all my friends already, and I would definitely keep him as my Dr. I have faith in him, and I was a very well satisfied with the treatment I got there. So, thank you very much.
February 25, 2021

I was very impressed with my meeting. Dr. Chowdhury did talk a little fast, but by grandson was with me, and took very good notes, and I was most impressed with his thoughtfulness about my condition, and what ... and what it was going to be, and ... and how he can help me, and it was a ... I especially appreciated the fact that he was a ... also a cardiologist, and he worked with my cancer, and was very knowledgeable in what effect that had on my body. Thank you very much.
February 22, 2021
Everybody that facilitated from nurses, to the anesthesiology, to Dr. Chowdhury did a fabulous job explaining everything. They were very kind to not just myself, but also my mom that had come with me. And just made me feel more at ease and more comfortable along with everything. So I am truly grateful and appreciative of my care from beginning to end yesterday.
February 18, 2021
It's always a good experience at the Avera Heart Hospital. The doctors and staff have always been accommodating to my husband and I as his caregiver. Also the nurses in outpatient were very nice and helpful with his experience in there. We are glad to be under a very caring family of professionals.

January 26, 2021
I was frightened, but after meeting the Dr. and his nurse and the EKG technician I was much less nervous! Kindness is the operative word! The Dr. was amazing!
January 19, 2021
On time
December 31, 2020
All I'd like to say is nothing was really resolved in the appointment. The doctor pretty much said it was up to me in what I wanted to do in regards to my medication. My concern was my blood pressure was really high and running high and nothing was really resolved in in the appointment. Thank you.
December 21, 2020
No one called me and told me about the results of the test. I guess I have a discipline man. I thought you were supposed to call me and talk to me. I left they said they would call me and let me know about my test. No one said a word.
December 14, 2020
Was good.
December 10, 2020
I arrived early and was checked in quickly. Hardly had time to sit down and was called in. Nurse did EKG, waited just a few minutes and dr came in to visit with me. I checked out and I was leaving 10 minutes before my scheduled appt time! Thanks!
December 03, 2020
Ya they told me exactly what was going on and what the heart looks like and explain to me on the process of how it was going to go back (INAUDIBLE) or how they can help me. In anyway, basically got down to the bottom of it. So yeah, I had a great experience at (INAUDIBLE) Heart Hospital. As always y'all the best healthcare that I know of here in this area. So, thank you.
December 02, 2020
I was very impressed with Dr. Chowdhury and his whole team. They made me feel much more comfortable things that are going to right now then when it when I before I go in there and and make you feel like it, you know, I'm I'm not doing my number one priority. I couldn't be more impressed.
November 12, 2020
I felt very good about my first spot with Dr. Chowdhury.
November 06, 2020
I had a very positive experience with all the Nurses and medical staff and especially Dr. Chowdhury. Its a great feeling knowing we have such a facility in the area for people who need the medical help.
November 03, 2020
the facilities and staff are excellent; do not like the lengthy drive of 100 +/- miles especially because we are elderly and winter driving conditions are soon upon us; we wonder if there is some lack of communication, concerning health/treatment history, between our local/home hospital staff and S.F., S.D. hospital staff
October 08, 2020
The experience is very good and very enlightening of what was going on and he did a good job, you know, all the staff did a good job taking care of us while we were there. Thank you.
October 06, 2020
Hi. I was very pleased with my appointment. Dr. Joe Hardy was very kind and I was had improved so much. He said I graduated from seeing him, but I would definitely come back to see him if my problems with pulmonary embolism the rise again, it's been a 2 year deal and he set me free. Thank you so much. I will definitely recommend Avera. Thank you. Bye.
October 01, 2020
I felt the health care provider and his nurses were concerned about my issues. They put me at ease and answered questions I had. Very good experience
