Awesome Doctor!

Dr chandler has been my doctor for going on 5 years he delivered my first and second baby. He's very kind and answer all the questions I ever had. He doesn't make you feel uncomfortable at all and he has great bedside manners when in the delivery room. I recommend him to anyone and everyone that is having a baby. Awesome doctor!!

Absolutely amazing! I had a horrible experience at Cox with our first son and with the second went with Dr Chandler and Freeman and am so happy we did. We were living in Carthage at the time but have since moved back to the Springfield/Republic area and still drove with our 3rd, and are now expecting our 4th and we are still driving to Joplin. He is calm, friendly, and thorough. The review that stated he brushes things off is simply not true. He is a great Dr. I have to have c-sections and trust no one but him to do them. He is laid back and easy going, but if you're like me you would much rather have someone calm in a delivery or surgery room, that a spastic Dr.

I had to have surgery and could not have asked for a better doctor. He listened to all my concerns and worked with me until I was completely comfortable. Recovery was a breeze and I owe that to the excellent care of Dr. Chandler.

Big mistake

Just another egotistical dr that only cares about the thickness of his wallet.

Just... No.

This is my second pregnancy. I had an amazing doctor with the first pregnancy, so I might be extremely biased when trying to compare. With Dr. Chandler, while he may be nice, I am NOT comfortable. When I bring up concerns he brushes them to the side. I have placenta previa, a tilted uterus, and my baby is breeched. All things that he should be discussing with me. Instead, he tells me I am getting overweight (3rd trimester and total weight gain of 31 pounds, starting at 145) and being extremely rude. My first appointment with him was kind of like a confirmation of pregnancy. He did a transvaginal ultrasound to see how far along I was but was rushing it almost. It was extremely uncomfortable. I have been through some rough ultrasounds, but nothing like that. I brushed it off as new doctor jitters, as I had gone to the same doctor for years before moving here. I brought up the possibility of VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) and his response was, "Do you really want to push out a baby and cause yourself even more issues?" I really had no idea how to respond to that and cried the whole way home. He's very intelligent, I will give him that. But if you are looking for someone who has YOUR and YOUR BABY'S best interest at heart, I would NOT see him. He is not helpful and is more or less condescending. I would do some doctor shopping if your insurance will allow it. Seriously.
