About me

Pronouns: She | Her | Hers

Dr. Shelly Chatterjee Choudhury is a pediatric gastroenterologist who cares for children with digestive illnesses. She has special interests in eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (inflammatory digestive tract conditions linked to food allergies) and aerodigestive disorders.

In research, Choudhury has studied noninvasive techniques for diagnosing eosinophilic esophagitis (an allergic condition of the esophagus) as well as new treatments for the disease, including biologics (medications derived from living sources).

Choudhury earned her medical degree from Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College and Hospital in India. She completed a residency in pediatrics at BronxCare Health System and a fellowship in pediatric gastroenterology at University at Buffalo, part of the State University of New York system.

Choudhury's approach to care aligns with a quote from renowned doctor William Osler, who practiced and taught in the late 1800s: "The practice of medicine is an art, not a trade; a calling, not a business; a calling in which your heart will be exercised equally with your head."
