Dr. Chandra is a very good dr. I have a lot of pain during the visits and he always apologizes but I know he is only doing what has to be done. 8. He is very kind, wish he could take away all my other problems I have personally. 10. I told him I think he saved my life.

This was my first encounter with Dr. Chandra. I did find him to be rough when he was looking at my sinuses. I got the feeling he was trying to end the appointment as soon as possible. I didn't feel comfortable asking any questions.
