After completing undergraduate degrees in music and history at Samford University, and a graduate degree in history from Florida State University, Dr. Chandler began his working career in business, in Birmingham, Alabama.

Dr. Chandler joined CVA in 1986. During his association with CVA, his focus has been on interventional cardiology, but he enjoys the practice of general cardiology as well. He is especially interested in preventive cardiology, as it applies personally to every patient.
