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.
