I do not recommend Dr. Chandra or his Vein Center. His most recent procedures on my legs have left me a cripple.

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!
