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.

Active Lifestyle

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

I had a very good experience. No complaints
June 15, 2022
Yes. I'm very impressed with Dr. Chowdhury. Anyway he's very accommodating. He answered all my questions and said to get a hold of him if I ever have any problem. So I will refer him to people that I know if they need to go. Okay, thank you.
June 15, 2022
Dr.'s nurse was quite abrasive. She was very, very adamant about the dates.
June 14, 2022
I was so impressed with Dr. Chowdhury and his team. They met my needs, they were caring, they were understanding. They were just so helpful and so, I knew they were going to be with me on this journey of congestive heart failure and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
June 13, 2022
I got in when I was supposed to get in and the doctor came in soon and went over everything with me and answered all my questions.
June 01, 2022
I felt very comfortable from the time I walked in the door great people working there THANK YOU
May 25, 2022
The doctor I saw was very intelligent and he spoke, so he was easily understood and went back couple different times
May 25, 2022
Everyone was very kind, considerate, knowledgeable, and patient. They made me feel at ease and welcome.
May 24, 2022
Extremely personable and helpful
May 17, 2022
Walking into the building the front desk greeters were less then friendly. Stressing I should have received a text about no children allowed. Which I didn't. Some of your patients come from out of state like myself and don't have a choice but to bring their child. I was there for a checkup and how I was treated plus my over looked paperwork which resulted in waiting til 12:15 for an 11:30am appt was not pleasant. Made sure the nurse wrote down my increased blood pressure was from my not so pleasant experience up front. Probably shouldn't have staff upset heart patients prior to meeting with their doctor.
May 17, 2022
Provider was quick to post very detailed explanation of recommended procedures on My Chart so followup questions were not necessary. We are still contemplating moving forward with recommended treatment.
May 14, 2022
everything was great!
April 28, 2022
Great running facility! Prompt caring friendly staff .
April 25, 2022
I was just a number. I did not feel important at all while I was there, nobody was really listening to anything I had to say. . I spent over 5 hours there, had to wait on a pre with for a procedure that had been scheduled for over a month. This should have been done way before I arrived. Completely ridiculous to be honest. Spending 5 + hours in your waiting room with people that didn't want to wear their masks gave me extreme anxiety and I oils not recommend this facility to anyone. Very disappointed in Avera lately. I switched my care from elsewhere because Avera was better and I'm finding out that maybe that was not a good idea.
April 14, 2022
Dr Chowdary listened carefully to my concerns and explained his recommendations fully. Support staff was very courteous. Everyone treated me as if my time was important; I appreciated that I didn't have any long waits.
April 13, 2022
Appreciate the care of everyone who dealt with me. All were caring, explained very well, and were nice.
April 12, 2022
Yes, when I went into the emergency room, the most outstanding individual that worked with me was, Tom Berg, registered nurse, emergency room. So a shot out to the outstanding customer service and knowledge that Tom had. Thank you. Bye.
March 23, 2022
I have always had good care at the Heart Clonic
March 17, 2022
All staff were so efficient and friendly. Great place.
March 09, 2022
I have never had a problem since I've been going to North Central Heart. All the people there, Dr. Chowdhury, everybody has just been wonderful. I don't have a bad word to say about anything. Keep up the good work. Thank you. That's all.
March 02, 2022
I think you better have the ability to read your records right.
February 28, 2022
Dr. Chowdhury got back to me with some of the results of my testing, the same day, which helped put me at ease, because it just was just nice to get the results as quickly as possible.
February 24, 2022
Always treated with respect by all the professionals here. Never feel like a number or rushed.
February 16, 2022
Dr Chowdhry and the echo techs were great
February 09, 2022
Short wait good information my Dr seemed very informed and communicated very well.
February 08, 2022
My wife & I deaf & u get us good interrupter that make my day smile & happy
February 02, 2022
We were very pleased with Dr. Chowdhury and the, you know, service that we got from him... the health care service and everything, and we just really appreciate, you know, his, you know, explaining everything to us and just very... being very supportive and on board with, you know, what... what we're looking for in my husband's health care.
January 25, 2022
Dr. Chowdhury and his nurse Tracy were awesome. They did a great job explaining everything to me. I'm very I feel very good about meeting with them. I would recommend it to anyone.
January 21, 2022
The doctor was excellent, but the nurse who came in to read view, my history was not at all familiar with my medical records. And it would have been helpful if she had looked at that beforehand.
January 20, 2022
I really like Dr. Chowdhury and I will continue to see him if I have any more questions or if I have any more pain like I have had and he was a wonderful person, he is a wonderful person. So and so is everybody else who worked at the heart place, so please take care and God bless. Bye.
January 19, 2022
Well, I had a very long. Wait, time. My appointment was at 11:30. I was there early, and I did see the doctor early and didn't have to wait. But then I had to test and it was like almost 4 o'clock by the time I was done because for some reason, I don't know if they were stacked up on the one test or whatever. But anyway, it was too long. Wait, so that probably is Not good. Bye.
January 17, 2022
Dr. Chowdhury and his staff were amazing. They help me. I came from across the state and they worked me in and help me and they will wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Chowdhury and his staff.
December 20, 2021
very personable will likely continue with him as my primary cardiologist
December 16, 2021
The appointment was very on time. The doctor made me feel extremely comfortable. I felt sure that the information and and the guidance he was given me was absolutely. Heartfelt, and I believe. He is going to be my cardiologist... in the future.
December 16, 2021
I was there for my a/fib. I was scheduled for an echocardiogram. After talking to the Dr. it was decided I didn't need one. I have never had any symptoms - no palpitations, no chest pain and no shortness of breath since I was diagnosed 5 years ago. I appreciate the Drs. opinion to not do the echo just because it was scheduled. I appreciate his honesty - it was a good office visit.
December 15, 2021
The only problem, I had it was too long in between the examinations. I mean, it took 5 hours, for 11 o'clock appointment... If there's some how they could speed that up. Thank you.
December 01, 2021
The entire staff was respectful, courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. I understood everything I was expected to do and why and I loved my experience there. While hoping to never have to return (because I prefer to be healthy!) I'm very happy with my experience with everyone there.
November 26, 2021
I enjoyed the people who I was with. I only wish I was given more time to explain some more details.
November 23, 2021
It was such a relief. Have a doctor who listen to me. I felt so at ease. With the doctor that I saw and it was easy to talk to him. And I felt like he gave me some really good options. He wasn't pushy. He listened and was kind and compassionate. I really appreciate it in.
November 23, 2021
Dr. Chowdhury was clear, concise, specific, caring, listened to everything I had to say, and explained everything clearly. Thank you.
November 11, 2021
You need to have a "Start Here" sign as you enter the building. The Information desk is confusing to start with.
October 27, 2021
I think Dr. Chowdhury is very considerate. I felt I feel real comfortable with him. I think he has real concern for his patients.
October 26, 2021
Very informative, and he was very motivating for me to continue improving my health and my heart health.
September 29, 2021
The doctor and his team were nice and professional.
September 29, 2021
Even though the Dr talked very fast, there was no lack of information or explanation. He was super nice. Just a little more time with the Dr would have been preferred. - The nurse was super nice, but scripted a bit too much and wasnt familiar on how to deal with my specific health situation.- The pharmacist was super and explained all very well and took the time to do so. - thank you for all of the medical support!
September 28, 2021
I found the system there to be very efficient and prompt. Regarding Dr. Chowdhury, probably one of the better physicians I've had the privilege of talking to in a long time. I would highly recommend him and what he does to those that need him.
September 21, 2021
Your scheduling was quick and easy to get in to see the doctor. I was - he was right on schedule. I felt it was very knowledgeable, very helpful and I really liked him. I liked his nurse a lot. I thought that the staff there was very, very good. I would highly, highly recommend them. I have no complaints.
September 15, 2021
Everyone very helpful
September 08, 2021
The doctor did great for my purpose and I explained to me what I need to do. That's all I need to talk about. Bye.
September 08, 2021
Hi, I was very pleased with all care I received at North Central heart. Everyone was very professional and very kind, especially when I was suffering from some anxiety. The provider and other people, everybody there was very understanding. So I appreciate that and thank you very much.
September 07, 2021
I have always gotten good service every time I have been there.
September 02, 2021
I was really impressed with the doctor, and I also was impressed with the nurses and the staff that helped me throughout the afternoon. Thank you very much again.
September 02, 2021
Everything went great
September 01, 2021
Provider seemed somewhat in a hurry. He said he was going to send a prescription to my designated pharmacy, but when I went to pick it up, they had no record of any script ordered. Because of weekend/holiday, there will be a delay before I can start the medication.
August 26, 2021
This doctor was extremely kind had great bedside manner, answered all my questions, and I was extremely satisfied with my visit. Thank you.
August 26, 2021
It was an overall great experience. I was very impressed how smoothly things went from checking in and checking out. Wait time between each procedure was probably less than 10 minutes. Every employee seemed very pleasant and truly liked there position.
August 16, 2021
The had me in and out of there fast.
July 29, 2021
We very much appreciated Dr Chowdhury answering our questions, and advising us on future medical care as needed.
July 28, 2021
The staff and Dr. could not have been more professional or kind! Very happy with your services! Thank you very much!
July 16, 2021
Everyone there was very friendly n respectful. Talk to you while examing n explains things to you that you want answers to the best they can.
July 15, 2021
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.
July 06, 2021
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
I was very pleased with the friendliness toward me by all the personnel.
June 23, 2021
All were very knowledgeable, helpful, compassionate, caring and professional. Thank you to all who were involved in my care!
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 10, 2021
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 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.
March 04, 2021
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
Dr. Chowdhury new on my medical needs and he was conscious of the needs that I'm going to need to get my treatment and I like the fact that she was very supportive of my main Dr. My main oncologist.
February 22, 2021
Yes, Dr. Chowdhury is absolutely amazing. We love the care. He provides and the staff is great, and we have no complaints at all. We would great the facility attend and definitely in Dr. Chowdhury 10 plus. Thank you.
February 22, 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.
