Dr. McCardell is a very patient and compassionate doctor. He will keep digging to find out what your problem is and not just prescribe a pill to fix it. I would highly recommend Dr. McCardell to anyone who has gotten nowhere with a prior physician to figure out the source of your pain.

Dr. McCardell is the nicest doctor I have ever had. Many times I have told him that I wish he was my pcp. For all the reasons I checked off below is why I ADORE THIS DR SO MUCH. He seems to really care, explains things clearly and gives you the time you need. I could go on but I am sure you get what I am saying here. He is just one of those special doctors and there aren't many like him left. The only negative about the clinic he works at is the scheduling ladies. They are not friendly at all.
