Ocala, fl |
Dr Chandra saved my life 15 years ago. I will be forever grateful. He and his practice have done ablations and stents. His knowledge and expertise with hereditary/primary lymphedema is amazing! He sets reasonable expectations too. Thanks for all you do!
Summerfield, FL |
Dont recommend this clinic to any one my mother had an procedure done and she is left with more pain that what she had before people be aware of this clinic The doctor dont even look at you
Ocala, FL |
I was referred for abdominal pain and hall bladder. I had no leg symptoms. He insisted I have vein problems and did 7 vein procedures. I had no symptoms of vein problems . I have severe pains now with worse legs since last 6 months. I was told that he can nothing more. I'm disssapointed and tootally unhappy. I recommend that any patient going to him seek second opinion before he does any procedure.

My leg are worse after he did multiple vein procedures

This doctor knows what he is doing. I am very satisfied with the gallbladder surgery I had.
in Ocala, Florida |
Dr Chandra shouldn't be able to practice surgery. He is arrogant, self-rightious and has absolutely no reason to be. He is a butcher that I wouldn't let operate on my dog. He caused more damage than good. Do not use him!
in Belleview, fl |
Very personable and takes the one to explain everything. Best surgeon in the area.
in OCALA, FL |
Dr. Chandra is one of the finest surgeons in the state of Florida. I am a nurse and believe me, the folks at the hospital know who is good. This guy is wonderful. My dual hernia repair was so well done, I can't tell I ever had a problem. Would highly recommend him to anyone for anything he does. Very happy with my results!
