Dr. Chandra was very informative and explained in detail the results of my CT Scan. He spent a lot of time going over everything with me. Many doctors I have seen in the past make me feel rushed and don't provide enough care that I feel they should. I left Dr. Chandra's office feeling as if I was in good hands.

Dr. Shondra is very easy to talk to. I feel like he listens to every thing I say. I enjoy my office visits with him & his staff. I leave with a peace in knowing I am getting the BEST care.
