About Me

While I treat all conditions involving the digestive system, I specialize in diseases that affect how the gut moves (motility disorders) and problems with the food pipe (esophagus). I enjoy talking to patients, understanding their perspective and working with them to create an individualized treatment plan. In addition to my work with patients, I enjoy conducting research because it ultimately helps improve what I do on the clinical side too.

At Ohio State, I love the camaraderie among my colleagues and the focus on patient-centered care. People here are very friendly and do their best to help, which makes it special to work here.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading (am a big fan of Asterix and Obelix), painting, watching science fiction movies, biking and gardening.

    Dr. Chakraborty explained all the details about my condition of bowel disease. He also offered two tests that might improve my condition. He explained the tests and what we would do with the results. He explained why he did not think the neuropathy is in my bowels. He offered a new medication that would allow me to adjust the dose of my Linzess depending on how much I needed that day. His office is trying to get my insurance to ok that new medicine dose. Its important cause I get dehydrated some times.
