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.

I would refer any of my friends, relatives or family to Dr Chander. He is a great communicator, lets you know what to anticipate and is focused on good outcomes for the patient
