Dr. Chandran is an exceptional provider. The advocate location is state of the art and a great facility. All my health/medical team care services are excellent. Clerks, receptionist, security etc. were all kind, warm and polite!

Dr. Chandran is the best!

March 1, 2019 6:00 PM

Great. Dr. Chandran squeezed me in for acute injury and came up with treatment plan.

February 27, 2019 6:00 PM

The actual doctor I saw qas great. however I typically have a hard time getting through on the office line to make appts. I also was a bit frustrated because one of the ladies enetered my x ray order incorrectly which resulted in me waiting an additional hour and a half at the hospital to get x rays taken. additionally, they did not give me a referral and they were supposed to. thankfully, the hospital did the x rays and someone was able to send over the referral that afternoon so that I wasnt charged and held responsible for payment. Doctors at this office are fine, I wouldnt recommend the office and plan on finding a new office to be seen at moreso because of the process improvement and attention to detail that is needed with other staff members serving on the frontlines.

Dr Chandra is always caring and very knowledgeable about my condition.He gives recommendations and I make decisions based on that.I highly recommend him and the rest of the staff at my Advocate facility.

very good

September 16, 2018 7:00 PM

my experience with this provider was fair. There was a concern (outside of my main reason for the appointment) that I brought to the attention of the provider and his 2 students and I was written off. They did not take my concern serious, told me that my issue was not present, and barely looked into it. The students even laughed. I felt as if my health and well being was not being taken serious and I was looked at as being "crazy". I still have the issue and am now looking for another provider to address the concern with.

I appreciate that Dr. Chandran saw me right away, but after ordering for me to have x-rays done, he followed up and Saturday to give me my results and what I needed to do.
