Local Medical Examiner’s Offices often decide to not conduct an autopsy following a person’s death. In these cases, Dr. Chundru can perform the initial autopsy to answer questions about a loved one’s passing. As a forensic pathologist, he follows a deliberative, scientific, and comprehensive approach. Procedures are highly private and generally take place at the funeral home selected by the family. The result of the autopsy is a full report that Dr. Chundru typically delivers in a timely fashion. ABOUT PRIVATE AUTOPSIES »
