Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I don't see any evidence that Dr. Chandra is a Board Certified Vascular Surgeon. He is a Board Certified General Surgeon. We got a second opinion which Dr. Chandra DID NOT welcome and appreciate... and he let us know!

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!

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.

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!

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!
