SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Chandra is very approachable, but professional. I like her and feel she is working towards a cure to my hideous ulcers on my legs.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr Chandra is an amazing surgeon. She is kind, thorough and listens with empathy and compassion. She also laughs at my husband's corny jokes, which I think says a lot for a Physician; it shows her wonderful bedside manner and patience with him. She is very clear and thorough and engages in conversation about Steve's wound and what needs to be done. She never makes us feel stupid for asking questions about ways to get his wound to heal. We think very highly of her! We are thankful for her!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

It was excellent. Dr. Chandra patiently explained the surgical procedure & why it was necessary & took priority over my pending hernia surgery.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr Chandra was very empathetic and informative all at the same time. She was able to listen and was not arrogant in her explanations. She was kind and helpful with a very pleasant demeanor. She also knows her area of expertise and even though her exam of my husband was a bit unpleasant, it was necessary and she was very good about watching and listening to him, and asking if what she was doing was hurting him.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Stanford Hospital is one of the best hospitals I have no complaints.
