I saw Dr. Chandran twenty days after experiencing a quadriceps tendon rupture. He quickly assessed my condition and decided surgery needed to be done immediately to restore motion. He contacted other doctor's offices and managed to get me same day appointments at the hospital and with a general practitioner to get all of my pre-op tests done that same day. I was in surgery the next morning at 8 am and home by 1 pm. The surgery was a success and Dr Chandran has been ...

I had a distal bicep tear, Dr. Chandran and his staff expedited my care to ensure I had a good surgery and recovery. My particular injury required surgery as soon as possible, his staff setup an MRI appointment immediately and scheduled surgery within a week. Great response. The surgery was good as I now have full use of my arm and bicep.

I recently broke my leg and I was worried about putting pressure on the broken leg. I was hoping to get my leg into a cast right away so it would be more stable. The doctor and his staff was able to see me right away. They were very quick with the whole process as well. Dr. Chandran and the staff were friendly and he was willing to take the time to speak with me and answer all my questions. I really appreciate doctors like Dr. Chandran who treat you like a person, not a number.

My complaint and 2 star rating falls on the receptionist whom name I don't know(female recep and the daley of my owed money.

Here U am 4 months later. I needed a copy of my visit and the receptionist was

Dr. Shaun Chandran did my knee replacement surgery of both knees assisted by his dad Dr. Rama Chandran. I was in pain for years with chronic pain, I was terrified to do my knee replacements which was recommended for years by many doctors but I chose to live with pain due to fear. After Dr. Chandran successfully conducted my two surgeries my quality of life has improved drastically, I can now walk normal, do all my usual activities and enjoy life again. Before Dr. Chandran...
