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.

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.

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.
