What People Say About Dr. Howard Chandler Jr, MD
Reply
I suffered a major seizure, with no warning. While being checked at Piedmont Henry County, a tumor was discovered in the left portion of my brain. The ER Dr recommended Drs Chandler and Dunbar. I was impressed during my research. A consultation appointment and functional MRI was immediately scheduled. Everyone was thorough and professional but spent whatever time I needed for me to understand what was to happen. Brain surgery and Gamma Knife radiation was scheduled. Dr Chandler was incredible.

Dr. Chandler operate on me twice at an interval of 8 years. Both operations resulted in immediate relief of excruciating pain in my lower back and legs. It has been eight years since my last operation and - at the age of eighty-eight - the pain has not returned. I love the guy!
