What People Say About Dr. Balu Chandra, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I first met Dr,Chandra in Oct 2017 after i had my Gallbladder out. Two days after removing my Gallbladder bile was leaking into my stomach and surgeon who removed it was out of town. Dr.Chandra was there to fill in for the other surgeon. And he took great care of me. And has been my Gi Doctor since which i see on a regular basis for other problems. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a GI Doctor. He takes time to explain every detail so that his patient feel comfortable with whatever problem or procedure they are about to have. I feel that i am in good hands with Dr.Chandra and trust him completely and have utmost respect for him as a Doctor and all around great person. And will not go to anyone else.

Dr. Chandra is a life saver. He took care of mom for years and he saved her life from a liver disease and we owe him more than words can ever say. He found that my wife had colon cancer and we were even told by the surgeon "that we were lucky he found it based on the location". He literally saved my wife's life and I trust him 100% with my health. Our family has been seeing him for over 15 years and his an awesome doctor. I would highly recommend him to any person that needs any Gastroenterology procedures. Marsh family
