He is the worst doctor i have come across in my life. He thinks his a GOD. He treated my seventy year old mother like dirt and made her cry because she complained that the light was too bright. He is extremely RUDE. Us patients come to doctors to feel good not to make us feel like crap. My poor mother had a stroke and also had Angioplasty done and unfortunately she is on quite a few medications and she also has few other conditions like diabetes which led to her poor vision.

In 2014, my eye Dr discovered I had a macular hole and I needed surgery, fast, to prevent further damage. Dr. Chandran was recommended Within 7 days I was being operated on. Dr. Chandran explained in the first appointment what was going on with my eyes and assured me if I followed his instructions, I would be OK. From the very first appointment to now, 3 years later, I am a very satisfied patient and would recommend him to care for your advanced eye care. Bob S Turlock, CA

Dr. Chandran and his caring staff are extremely dedicated to serving the needs of there patients. He is the most caring person I have ever meet. I have trusted him with my eye sight and he treats my eyes as if they were his own eyes. He has restored my vision from 20/50 back to 20/20 more times than I can count. I have lost track of how many injections to my eyes and how many laser treatments he has administered. But each and every one is done with extreme care.

My name is Robert Yohanan , 2 years ago I fell and damaged my head which caused my right eye to be damaged and it is the only eye I can see out of. the left eye was damaged at birth.. I went to my optometrist for glasses Doctor Hoobyar in Turlock and he sent me asap to doctor Chandran which was kind enough to take me asap. They rushed me into surgery in one day or I would have been blind in my only good eye. I spent 3 months 24/7 with my head down and Prayed my eye would heal. God heard me and G

I am writing in regards to my Step-Father, Bob Yohanan's care, provided by Dr. Chandran. Dr Chandran's diagnosis, procedure, and after care, was wonderful in everyway. I personally want to thank you, Dr. Chandran, for your serious attention, and consideration applied, in giving my Dad the best eye care possible, to avoid damage or risk Thank You! Keri Costner

I would like to share my experience the first time I met with Dr. Chandran. I had lost the eye sight in my right eye. Dr. Chandran took all the time necessary to evaluate the condition, and make a decision on how to proceed. Dr. Chandran is very loyal to his patients and very concerned for their well being. His positive attitude and encouragement have been very helpful during a time of frustration and uncertainty. Thank you Dr. Chandran for my eye sight.

As a caregiver for my 97 year old mother, naturally I'm concerned about the best health care possible for her. She has severe macular degeneration which brought us to Dr. Chandran about 6 years ago. From our first visit, both my mother and I were very pleased with Dr. Chandrans understanding and gentleness with dealing with an older patient. He is very thorough, takes time to explain where she is with her eye situation, and steps that we all need to take to maintain her level of vision.

Dr. CHANDRAN has being caring for my aging parents for eight years. Combined, I've probably accompanied them on approximately 90+ appointments. While most specialists are highly skilled, most tend to treat the diagnosis and display little compassion for the patient as a whole person. Dr. CHANDRAN is the exception; he takes the time to listen carefully and offers thorough answers. He openly displays interest all the patient's medical concerns. While busy, he never seems rushed or impatient.
