Dr. Chandra is so patient and down to earth. I trust her whole heatedly with both my children's care. One of my kids are special needs and couldn't be in better hands. Amber (office manager) and Amanda are great as well.

She mean mugs, looks you up and down, lies, doesn't answer questions regarding medication but instead talks about her experience, sexist comments. Asked my husband who makes the decisions in our home, me or him?! Then when confronted she throws your whole family out of preferred medical group. I lost my doctor's just because she stated she wasn't qualified to treat my son and we needed to take him elsewhere. It was fine that I needed to have another doctor treat him but then to cut my other children and I from all of these clinics was childish. Can't believe she is even allowed to treat patients based off her personal Google reviews. I contacted the medical board of Alabama due to her sexist comment and the BBB.

We have been seeing Dr. Chaundra since my son was 8months old. She is an amazing Dr and has helped so much with my autistic child. Anytime we need an appointment for any REASON we are seen right away. We dont wait long as she understands my son's limited patience. Thanks for all you and your staff do.
