Print icon

The Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital has recently welcomed Nabi Chowdhury, MD, who is now accepting patients one day a week at the new CHH Specialty Care office located at 76 Watertown Road, Thomaston.

The practice offers neurological evaluations, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system. The neurologists employ sophisticated technology, to diagnose and treat conditions including movement disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, headache, stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, peripheral neuropathy and others.

“Charlotte Hungerford Hospital and its partners at Hartford HealthCare’s Ayer Neuroscience Institute are continuing to add local Neurology providers with new services in Thomaston. We are happy to have Dr. Chowdhury join our team.” said Dan McIntyre, Hartford HealthCare’s Senior Vice President of the Northwest Region and CHH President.

Dr. Nabi Chowdhury, MD, is a graduate of St. George’s University School of Medicine, Grenada, West Indies, and was a resident in Neurology at UMass Memorial Medical Center, Worchester, MA. He was also an Intern in Medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse, NY, and a Research Assistant at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY. Dr. Chowdhury is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine.

The Ayer Neuroscience Institute has greatly increased access to neurology services for patients with the addition of three neurologists and a physician assistant located in the Medical Office Building CHH, 538 Litchfield Street, Suite 104, Torrington. Neurologists Dr. Hugh Cahill, Dr. Lucas Meira-Benchaya, and Dr. Sarah Meira-Benchaya, MD, as well as Sabra Becker, PA, are now accepting patients in Torrington.

The field of Neuroscience – the study of the nervous system and its structure — is growing. Not only is neuroscience concerned with the normal functioning of the nervous system, but also what happens to the nervous system when people have neurological, psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. Throughout Hartford HealthCare, the Ayer Neuroscience Institute has several programs including epilepsy, stroke, movement disorders, hearing and balance, neuro-oncology, headache, sleep disorders, spine, neurosurgery, pain management and neuromuscular disorders.

Dr. Chowdhury is currently accepting patients in Torrington three days a week and one day in Thomaston from 8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. For questions or to schedule an appointment, contact 860.626.8232.

Dr. Chowdhury shares the CHH Specialty Care office with providers from Hartford HealthCare’s Tallwood Urology and Kidney Institute and Heart and Vascular Institute, and the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Foot Center and Nutrition Services. The office is also next door and in the same complex to Hartford HealthCare Medical Group Primary Care Thomaston.
