I HAD been a patient of Dr. Chandra's for over 7 years, with his having done a heart cath, echocardiogram, stress tests, etc. On September 25, I went to my PCP complaining of leg weakness and SOB. After doing an EKG, and chest x-ray, he suggested seeing my cardiologist as soon as possible. I proceeded to call Dr. Chandra's office early on Monday morning. I was told that someone would get back to me to schedule a time to be seen. Even with my PCP calling, I was not able to get a timely appt

Don't risk your health!! I would NOT recommend Chandra for anyone as he put my husband's health at risk by prescribing the wrong medication for his high cholesterol and not explaining the test results. My husband's family doctor explained the test results that indicated abnormalities in the left lower quadrant of his heart and that a heart cath. is necessary to diagnose and treat his condition. Find a cardiologist who cares about patients and knows how to treat them.

HORRIBLE.I gave him multiple chances for adequate care.He nearly killed me.HE insisted in being in charge of my blood pressure meds not my PCP.He did not listen to my protest of very hard to control blood pressure and bad experiences with other meds or allergies.He changed my medicine anyway and then DID NOT RETURN MULTIPLE PHONE CALLS about it not working until I complained about chest pain and even then a physicians assistant return the calls. After all that they charged me $25 for my records.
