I was extremely happy with Dr. Chandra. I had a very difficult gallbladder removal due to a prior tummy tuck. Dr. Chandra was able to navigate through it all to get to my gallbladder and keep my tummy tuck intact. I see some reviews indicating he is "condescending". I did not have that experience with either him or his office person. I was very happy with his staff who answered all of my concerns whenever I called. I also had to reschedule my surgery at one point because of a family emergency and the office was completely understanding. The most important quality of a surgeon is skill and he definately has that. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Chandra was simply wonderful and took such good care of me when I arrived at Tarzana Emergency and on my follow up visit ..he was the Surgeon that took care of my Appendix removal,, I have never written a review for any medical professional in my 40+ years. Well respected, tough but knows how to care for a patient.

Terrible surgery, abdomen and groin hernias felt like they weren’t repaired after surgery. Office staff terrible and physician lacks any type of compassion. He doesn’t talk to you he talks at you, terrible customer service and insufficient surgical skills. I would not recommend

I went for a hernia operation. 4 months later I was still in pain. I called the office and asked for the first afternoon appointment which I was told I was given. I arrived 10 minutes early and there was another couple ahead of me. I waited 40 minutes. The woman who runs the office couldn't have cared less. When I finally asked why I had to wait so long, she said "ask him." I left, never heard from him. No apology, he didn't care. Might be a good doctor, but in my opinion, not a good person.

I can not judge his surgical skills yet. But my review is about how he and his office staff make me feel, Dr Chandra does not give the patient a chance to ask questions, he does not listen to what patient is asking, it is like a one way conversation, although it is important that surgeon listen to patient's concerns so he can recognize what is wrong, but that was not the case with Dr Chandra, he always in hurry and barely gives anytime to listen, but he comes daily to check on his patients

When we first met Dr. Chandra he was consulting on possible surgery for my father. At that time he was rather cold and matter-of-fact but when surgery became inevitable he became communicative, caring and attentive to both my father and our family. The surgery and reversal went as he predicted and over that three month period Dr. Chandra has been incredibly nice and has gone out of his way to explain things and allay our concerns.
