I have been a patient of Dr Chandra’s for a few years now. I have always found him & his staff kind & considerate toward me. I’ve had a difficult sinus problem & he’s hung in there with me trying to resolve it. He always takes time to explain things to me & answer my questions.

Dr. Chandra is a very kind and patient man. He listened to my issues and offered a treatment plan after reviewing my medical history. His was a second opinion, - for surgery - the same as the first doctor I had visited for severe recurring sinus infections. Dr. Chandra took the time to explain the why's of what was going on and how a possible surgery solution could correct it. I trusted him. I had the surgery and have been doing great ever since! Changed my life. I would highly recommend hi

I went to Dr Chandra from Knoxville on referral. He was second choice of doctors here. He did surgery in March & was sure it would fix the problem. After surgery my symptoms were not improved. He sent me to a neurologist who found no problem there. I still have the infection in my sinus, but he has no interest in finding the cause or problem. As far as he is concerned he did surgery and unlike his discription of handling sinus problems, he has washed his hands of problem.
