Dr Chandra is always great. I have total trust in his abilities. First time I've met the PA. She was very professional while being very personable.

Dr. Chandra always explains what he is doing and why he is doing it. He also includes me in any decisions.

I did feel rushed but I'm sure my situation made my appointment much longer than most. I still don't fully understand everything with the pending surgery

I really like Dr. Chandra, and it was nice to see him again. I kind of wished he had spent a little more time with me though; I felt like it was a quick visit, just in and out. And I would have liked a little more detail about the actual procedure and what to expect and any risks vs. Benefits. Also, he referred me to a hematologist, and I'm not clear on why he wants me to see this doctor. I can just email him through the portal though.
