Best doctor experience I've ever had. The office was quick and extremely friendly. Dr. Chandler was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. You can tell her really cares about his patients and has no interest in just getting patients just inand out the door. At the end of my physical he asked "what are your overall health goals for yourself?", which is such a great question to hear from a doctor. It showed he cares about my overall well being and wanted to make sure he was guiding me in any way he could (i.e. recommending other doctors, diet suggestions, etc.). HIGHLY recommend.

Incompetent and unethical doctor. The first step -- before any doctor can even begin to do his job effectively -- is to trust what the patient says and carefully examine prior tests which the patient brings. I took prior test resultswith me to my appointment. He viewed them very briefly, and did not even bother to make copies of them. I requested that he write a letter for me. I told him I need the letter by Friday at the latest. He said OK. On Friday his office called me and told me that the doctor will not write the letter I requested because he has "done research" and has found no evidence that I have the health problems I say I have. Five calls and two messages later he wrote an extremely weak and worthless letter that starts with "I have seen her once and she says..." He didn't treat the illness I went to him for and he refused to help me get the accommodation I need. He claims that I lied about my health conditions even though I offered test results to him. Does he think patients go to his office just to socialize while he makes big bucks for offering a nice chit chat?

I arrived right at my appointment time and had to fill out some paperwork. The front desker was super duper nice and kept me entertained the whole time. The moment I was done, Chandler came in to see me. Extremely niceand listened to any and all of the problems I had. The physical was the routine deal, but made better by the fact that he explained everything he was doing and answered any follow-up questions I had. The best thing by far was that after the tests he printed out a summary with notes of my 'readings' and what to do to improve on the things I had mentioned were bothering me. Locked down that PCP real fast!

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr.Chandler. He is a very compassionate physician and a great communicator. What I loved about my visit with Dr.Chandler is that he is about the facts and isn't afraid to admit when he is notsure about something (this makes me feel reassured that all the information that I am getting is accurate...especially since he takes the time to look up the facts if he is not sure). Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and will being seeing him again if I need to make another appointment.
