I have visisted with Dr. Chander on several occasions. I find him to be most passionate in his profession and very understanding. Dr Chander has helped me identify the limits of my condition and has me on the least amount of medication to support my heart health. He is also kind and generous man with his time and has a sence of humor. I am very pleased that he is my heart doctor and yes I would and do refer others to him.

I was reluctant to have to see a Cardiologist, but he found a semi serious problem with my heart and treated it accordingly. Dr. Chander is just awesome ! He listens to your concerns and answers all of your questions. Sometimes you have to wait at least 30-45 minutes to see him once you are in the office, but when he is with you-you get his total undivided attention. I would recommend Dr. Chander to anyone with heart problems. I totally trust him.
