Manassas Virginia Clinical Psychologist Victor Chamandy Taken by Pancreatic Cancer

After a courageous 2 & 1/2 year battle with pancreatic cancer, Dr. Victor Chamandy, Ph.D. passed away on May 30, 2013.  All of us here at ABRAMS LANDAU were saddened by the news of Dr. Chamandy’s passing.  He helped our disabled clients with patience, intelligence and empathy.

According to the Washington Post obituary, he graduated from George Washington University where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Psi Chi, the psychology honor society. He earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the Catholic University of America.

In 1970 Vic interned at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, DC where he met his wife of 38 years, Marjorie A. Harelick, M.D.  Chamandy served as a staff psychologist at Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute in Fairfax, VA and at Dominion Hospital in Falls Church. Dr. Chamandy then opened a private practice of clinical psychology with offices in Annandale and Manassas, Virginia, where he specialized in individual psychotherapy and psychological and neuropsychological testing. He retired in 2010 for health reasons.

Dr. Chamandy had worked with ABRAMS LANDAU  clients who had permanent disabling conditions, and his psychiatric testing and thorough reports helped the Federal Administrative Law Judges award Social Security Disability benefits to deserving, but disabled workers.  Dr. Chamandy’s passage was also poignant because my own father, Norman J. Landau, was taken by Pancreatic Cancer. This is why I have supported various events supporting research into the cure for this fatal disease.  Our thoughts and prayers with his family
