“When deciding it was time to get an arm lift, due to weigh loss, I spent a lot of time looking into different surgeons in SK and AB. After having consultations with several doctors I decided to go with Dr. Chandran and have absolutely no regrets!! He has answers to all my questions right on the spot and made me feel very comfortable. His reception and assistant and more then helpful and accommodating, even answering calls at 10:00pm when I was panicked post-operation, as well as, offering me to come in at the drop of a hat to address any concerns. He really took the time and attention that I was looking for and I have zero regrets! My incisions are healing up beautifully and his cuts are very clean and fine. I highly highly recommend him!!”
