Dr. Chandler addressed my tumor in innovative ways that preserved much of my function that would have been lost if addressed by other methods. 10 years out and I have had great results.

I loved that he sat and answered all my many, many questions and I never felt rushed. He is very kind. His staff is also very helpful and returns calls or emails fast. I would recommend him to my closest family and friends.

It was 4 years ago..I had a serious car accident in Chicago. Doctor Chandler saved my life with a very successful brain surgery. I was fully recovered only one month later! It was a miracle. Thank you so much, Doctor Chandler and your wonderful team!

We waited for about an 1 hour 45 min. because he had an emergency surgery in the morning. The nurses asked if we wanted water while we waited. I was scared we would be rushed, but he sat and answered all my questions and explained things very simple to understand. We scheduled surgery about a month after my visit. About a week after my first visit, I had a scare his nurses told me to get to the ER and they would be waiting, they took excellent care of me. I ended up having surgery moved up to two weeks after my first apt. I felt very well taken care of by Dr. Chandler and his team of doctors and nurses. It's been two weeks after surgery and had my first check up and I'm feeling and doing great.

The most magnificent doctor and brilliant surgeon I have ever met. Dr. Chandler worked 14 hours to remove a bening tumor wrapped around my brainstem. I had no symptoms pre operatively and post op I'm the same!!! He and his staff are truly angels:)
The best there is

disappointed and still in pain
Self-verified patient of Dr. James P Chandler - Posted on June 29th, 2013
While the doc himself may have been good in the cervical spinal fusion surgery itself, his inattentiveness and that of his resident and the hospital staff both pre and post op was nonexistent. I spoke very briefly with the resident before surgery and saw him and Chandler for only a few minutes the day after, where both doctors said almost nothing. I received almost no information on what to expect post-op, especially regarding the horrendous amount of pain I would be in, and further I was not given a collar to wear until over 30 hours after surgery. Post-op personnel were non-responsive to my nearly frantic calls for help during my overnight stay, and frequently just left me standing there when I needed assistance getting back into the bed. Post op team also insisted that there was no order for a collar, yet when I spoke to Chandler's clinic nurse 2 days afterward, she said that couldn't have been right and insisted that I wear it 24/7. I have received so many contradictory instructions from Chandler's and the hospital's staff that I am confused not only about how I should handle this post-op period, but whether or not the lack of the proper support for my neck for so long was appropriate or a mistake, and whether it will have a negative impact on my recovery and on the long term outcome of the surgery.
