Dr. Chandran has been my Nephrologist for years. I appreciate that he doesn't candy coat our discussions and I've never felt like he's had anything less than my best interest in mind. The staff at NW Renal is efficient and friendly and I can't imagine having to go elsewhere for my medical condition.

This was my first visit and I was pleased with Dr. Chandran's assessment of my kidney problems. Several tests are scheduled to be performed to determine the extent of the kidney damage. Thus far I am very pleased with his thoroughness and would not hesitate to recommend him to other people with similar problems.

I started seeing Dr. Chandran in March of 2016. My primary doctor referred me to him. I now am very satisfied he recommended me to him. I, like a lot of new patients, new very little of the disease I now have. I looked it up on the internet and still had a lot of questions. My first visit to him he explained to me where I could understand this problem. I find him to be very understanding of answering any questions I ask him. He is very friendly and easy to talk to. He makes you feel at home.
