Dr Chandavarkar is excellent in every aspect of her profession. She explains everything so you understand the disease and the procedure she uses. She performed a complete hysterectomy on me 5 1/2 yrs ago. Felt great afterwards and no problems. Highly recommend her. Very caring.

Doctor Chandavarkar saved my life. I trusted her from the very beginning. She told me what had to be done and she did exactly that. She also said to me in my distress that this is not the end of you. She was kind and professional and I wish she was still here. Banner got the best skilled and dedicated doctor and we lost her. It was my honor and privilege to have had you Doctor. Thank you Doctor for your world class attention for women.

Dr. Chandavarkar was instrumental in extending my wife's life after being diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer two years ago. Her ability as a surgeon was outstanding. The radiologist could not find any visible cancer after the procedure. Her treatment methodology was excellent. She was compassionate and caring...going the extra mile to see my wife was treated promptly and completely.

I would highly recommend Dr. Chandavarkar to friends and family! She answered all my questions to my satisfaction and took the time to meet with my family to explain my health situation and treatment. She is dedicated to providing A+ treatment to her patients. Multicare is lucky to have such a highly skilled doctor on their staff.

Dr Chandavanker was the FIRST surgeon that didn't look at my weight and say I can't work with you because of your weight . She treated me with respect and dignity. She did excellent job my surgery and was able to save my ovary and just remove my cysts. I am and will always be for ever grateful to Dr.Chandavanker for giving me hope and respect. ???

She is not very sympathetic at all. She basically made me suffer after surgery. Glad it's over with.
