Hudson Valley native Dr. Neeraj Hotchandani recently returned home, joining Nuvance Health Medical Practice to offer primary care in Highland.


“I left Dutchess County to pursue a degree in classical medieval studies in Maine, but medicine was my true calling, and I am thrilled to be back home among the Hudson River and mountains,” he said.


Dr. Hotchandani sees adults, age 18 and older, and speaks conversational Spanish. He believes that a good primary care physician empowers patients with knowledge so that they can make decisions that are right for them.


“I make it a point to explain each of my recommendations thoroughly so that patients best understand how to optimize their health,” he said.


For training, he completed his residency in internal medicine at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Jersey. He holds a doctorate degree of medicine from SUNY Downstate College of Medicine in Brooklyn. Prior to medical school, he spent two years as a research associate with The Advisory Board Company, a healthcare consulting firm in Washington D.C.


Outside of the office, Dr. Hotchandani enjoys going on walks with his wife and dogs, hiking, tennis and basketball. He is also passionate about environmental science, particularly climate change.
