Very detailed in explaining my condition and the procedure, answered all of our questions in understandable detail.. I felt totally comfortable in his ability to perform the procedure I needed.

Very helpful and kind. Took the time to answer all of my questions. He treated me like a patient instead of a number. I would highly recommend Dr. Chandela to anyone.

Unprofessional and fails to deliver. Uncaring and does not listen. I need to have a repeat procedure because he failed to deliver a full set of images from my imaging procedure. His arrogance trickles down to his staff, who are similarly unhelpful and curt. Go to someone else and save yourself...more

Very dismissive of our concerns. Understandably so since the issue wasn't one of an immediate high risk but not reassuring or forthright with all the information. Made us feel like we were wasting his time even though it was a less than 10 minute appointment after a 45 minute wait.
