What People Say About Dr. Rajat Chander, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Chander and his most capable attening nurse Ms. Amanda Kelly have provided the most superior service to me in my last 8 years under their care battling severe Ulcerative Colitis. Their attention to my physical condition, as well as my emotional condition, have been instrumental in my coping with my circumstance. Nurse Kelly's ability to negotiate with my insurance provider to insure all the justification and clinical evidence is provided to satisfy my prescription requirements, even for the most involved biologic treatment medications now on the market. I offer Dr. Chander and Nurse Kelly my highest recommendations for attention to the entire range of needs as I require as I battle my Ulcerative Colitis. I feel in the best and most capable of hands under the care of Dr. Chander and Nurse Kelly.

I suffered from a rare and serious gastrointestinal disease seldom seen in the USA. While it stumped other doctors, Dr. Chander kept researching and exploring until a definitive diagnosis was reached. He did not give up, and took my symptoms very seriously. I am happy to report that the treatment has been very successful. He and his staff are professional, capable, caring, and take the time to listen. I highly recommend Dr. Chander!

I would highly recommend Dr. Chander and his awesome nurse at the Cary, NC location. They are both warm and caring professionals who provide exceptional care. Rare do you fine a doctor who goes the extra mile for you, listens intently to your problems and provides care options. It seems that many doctors don't spend much time with you but with Dr. Chander, you leave feeling like he cares and like he "has your back", he's awesome!

Dr. Chander is a very good doctor but I had a serious case of acid reflux that he could not comprehend. Several of his suggestions did not cure my acid reflux. When I try to explain my experiences trying to reduce the reflux and some of doctors that could not help me, he was disturbed that I question the doctors. I found this to be most unprofessional.
