He has by far made up for how another local neurologist treated me some years back. Dr. Chander talks with you in terms you can understand without sounding condescending.

Dr. Chander is the best neurologist I have ever worked with. I had headaches that every other neurologist dismissed and he worked with me to root cause them and solve for them after 10 years of being passed off by every other physician. His goal is to improve your quality of life. Even if I am ok with my condition he is constantly looking for ways to remove all of my issues. I am consistently blown away by his knowledge and compassion. Seriously a great guy. His staff is so nice as well!!

Had blood work done on December 27, 2017. Did not hear anything from Dr. regarding drug levels. Had to call twice myself and still have not talked to a nurse. Still waiting for ok to drive. May lose job due to these people. May be a brilliant DR. but the communication skills are very lacking

This guy is a joke. My husband has seizures and hypoglycemia. He went to dr chander trying to get a release back to work. His previous neurologist had put him on Kepra and it's made him not want to eat which is dangerous since he has low blood sugar. This doctor argued with us several times that it wasn't the medication. So what does he do. HE PULLS OUT HIS PHONE AND GOOGLES IT!!!!! We ended up being right by the way. When asked for the EEG results his response was I'm not a specialist.

My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's and mild cognitive disease. Dr. Chander did bloodwork, neurological testing and DaT scan and other tests. If I asked questions he responded clearly. If I suggested a test, he would either do it or tell me why it wasn't necessary. He always listens to me and asks me questions regarding the condition of my husband who isn't always able to speak for himself. He will laugh with me but never at me. Waiting times do get long sometimes.

Waited months for appointment,He never sent for records from 15 previous years.Ignored MRI DVDs,records & diagnosis I brought copies of with me.I wanted treated nearer home.He gave me no exam yet said I didn't have MS,referred me to psych for pain due to psychological not physical reasons.Ignored problems from 2 strokes also.Now treated well at Emery MS Center in Atlanta.Dr Chander was rude, obnoxious, & unprepared.Twenty years of neurologists-worst treatment.Like a bad joke.
