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!
