Tampa, FL |
Very knowledgebale. Great staff too.
Tampa, FL |
Dr Chandra is definitely a 5 star doctor. He's very knowledgeable I went to see him for a thyroid problem for years and never had any problems until he hired several Drama-Queen ARNPs. Whenever I had the displeasure of seeing one of them, I always left in tears, with a pile of scripts for tests and gallons of blood work. I stopped going when one of them TOLD me I was diabetic and wanted me to shoot up insulin when my A1C was 5.7 and fasting of 84... knowing that I'm terrified of needles. Cruel!

Dr. Chandra is an excellent attentive caring dr. He spent more than enough time with me an explained everything and more to me most of all he brought something to my attention that I have been concerned about for a while. He is wonderful and I pray that God will continue to bless him and continue to give him the strength to care for his patients!

My opinion is 0 rating. There is no choice so giving 1 star . It's the worst office I have been to . Staff and doctor both does not care . They just want money . The doc does not have eye contact with patient but always looks at his assistant talking .
in Bainbridge Ga |
Dr.Chandra has been my doctor for over 20 years. That in it self should say ALOT ! He is very caring and compassionate... Always listens, answers all questions as well as ask questions. Takes his time with you, never rush's you out. God bless him for helping me and my daughter.

I find Dr Chandra and his assistants very knowledgeable and caring. They always take time to explain test results and medical diagnosis. I feel that they listen to my concerns and involve me in my health plan. I have recommended them to friends as well.
Tampa, FL |
Male nurse is very rude, not friendly, have to pry what my blood pressure was out of him. Dr Chandra is always in a hurry, very short, doesn't really listen and answers questions in doctor talk. The ARNPs are much more apt to be professional and listen than the Dr or the nurse. This has been an ongoing issue with this office. Don't know why I keep going back...need an endocrinologist, that's why. Also, he insists on me having thyroid sonos and bone dexa in his office, not at the hospital.
in Tampa, FL |
Professional, Practice experienced and Patient. I love Dr. Chandra and his staff.
Tampa, FL |
I highly recommend this office and Dr. His staff is friendly and the Dr. takes time to explain his findings with you.

I have been struggling with specific medical issues for years, and after many disheartening trips to several different doctors, I finally found one who actually listened to me. I was very nervous going in, but Dr. Chandra was compassionate, patient, thorough, and extremely professional. I actually started weeping from relief at the end of my appointment... I am looking forward to working with Dr. Chandra to get my health back on track. Don't go by the other reviews on here- judge for yourself.
in Odessa, FL |
I saw Dr. Chandra in consultation yesterday. His office staff is very friendly and professional. A very nice office with a large, comfortable waiting room. Wait time was minimal. Dr. Chandra was very personable, informative, thorough, and explained his findings and recommendations in great detail. He is a very kind man and has excellent bedside manner. His English is perfect and easy to understand just in case that concerned anyone. I would highly recommend Dr. Chandra..so glad I found him.

If you're looking for a doctor who thinks he's a god and above reproach, Dr. Chandra is for you. He's not the type of doctor who believes his patients can understand or deserve to know about the mechanics of their health. He's not going to partner with you and appreciate a patient driving their own healthcare. If you don't question him, and choose not to use your own brain, you'll really love this guy.
