Patient Comments (35)

Dr. Chandra was wonderful! She explains things clearly and told us what we needed to hear, not what we wanted to hear, concerning our son's diagnosis of ADD. 4 months later and his ADD isvwell managed and his grades have improved dramatically. I would highly recommend Dr. Chandra1
