Ratings for Dr. Joseph J Chanda
I have been a patient of Dr. Chanda"s for several years. I am on a 6 mo visit schedule for skin checks, due to being fair skinned in the sun. I find the Dr. extremely professional, moderately relaxed, and very informative if you ask questions. He is not talky-talky. I can understand patients may mistake this for rudeness or a poor bedside manner. I do not. I appreciate his candor and his "get down to business" attitude. It is exactly why I return every 6 mos.
He is a dermatologist, but also a cosmetic surgeon. He's done two significant surgeries to my face, and neither one is noticeable. He is extremely efficient in his exam, and some may mistake that for negligence, but it's really experience showing. The reception staff are often rushed, but the medical staff are superb. Many of his staff have been there for many years.It's true that his appointment schedule is a joke, but that's because if you come in with something that needs attention,you get it taken care of right there and then if possible. The secret is to make appts for early morning, and bring something to read.
Excellent doctor who is very well respected throughout the community and his peers. Dr. Chanda is a very good man and can get busy at times, but that is because you can get in to see him within a couple of weeks and not months. He works harder than the others so you, the patient, don't have to wait for quality care. Oh, and to the guy who said he got a certified letter in the mail regarding his basal cell cancer, those letters just don't show up out of the blue. I've worked at a doctor's office before and those certified letters are only sent if you've ignored phone calls, previous letters or been completely out of contact for weeks on end. Plus, a doctor usually doesn't take phone calls just to chat with a patient. If you have questions, just schedule an appointment to talk, you would not be charged I'm sure. If a doctor just took calls as they came in, there would be no time to actually see patients.
