Chandra is Vice President of Clinical Pathology Associates.
Recalling a humorous moment from his first-year residency at Stanford, Chandra says, “An OR nurse asked me to pick up a colon tumor immediately. I stopped what I was doing and rushed down the long hall for this rite of passage. Only, when I came to the OR, nobody was present. Only an orderly mopping the floor around a blue absorbent pad. I asked where the surgeon was and what was the issue at hand with the specimen. The orderly replied, ‘Nothing. Just pick up this colon from the floor and take it away.’”
