Dr. Chandler performed a double hernia surgery on my son in 2014. The surgery seemed to go well, but the problems that my son was experiencing seemed to progressively get worse after the surgery. The pain was worse than prior to the surgery and he was experiencing problems in the abdominal area that previously did not exist. Approximately one year after surgery Dr. Chandler told my son that he needed to go to pain management that there was nothing else he could do.

Dr. Chandler performed surgery on me last October. He was one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. He took time to explain everything and to really listen to my concerns. The surgery went extremely well and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
