Dr.Chandru had operated for my mom when she was diagnosed with femoral hernia. Everytime we reached hospital it was late in the night and during critical stage, doctor was immediately reachable and he conducted the operation without any delays. After the operation procedure , everything was explained well and dr. was friendly to advise my mother about the post operation care.
His smiling and friendly discussion giving overall idea of ailment and necessary treat. Unique!!!
Doctor Chandru is so friendly and soft spoken. Had taken my mom for mammogram. He helped us out with the procedure and made mom feel so positive. Before going to him we had our own fears about the entire procedure and it’s outcome. Just after meeting the doctor, we felt so confident and relieved. He has such positive vibes ***** ** ** ******* ** ******* **** ** **** ********
Dr.Chandru is like our family doctor. We prefer only to get treated by him for past 3 years.He is very much approachable and responds for our calls when needed and suggest medicines based on our feedback if unable to meet.
