This was a post op visit from surgery and I was rushed as the doctor was in a hurry to come in and out just like he was doing surgery. All of questions/ concerns were not fully answered and I am not happy and still have concerns and scheduled to see another provider for a 2nd opinion and to get answers.

Dr. Chandra is superb; in fact, because of his excellent service provided, my wife and I elected to use Vanderbilt for our youngest daughter's upcoming surgery.
