He wouldn't listen to anything I had to say, I wouldn't let that man touch me ever. I was pondering the need for a test but after that visit I knew I would never let him do the test. Best description stubborn old man that is out of shape and has not idea about any type of natural healthy living. The office didn't appear very clean either.

I saw Dr. Francisco Cardenas today and his bedside manner is incredibly rude. He has no idea how to treat a patient with respect and had the audacity to tell me in so many words that I was stupid for thinking I had hemorrhoids when it was a skin tag. The nurses were no better in the back. Brandy who typically works with Dr. Oh who she made that abundantly clear was rude when I asked her did I need to wait in the room and she snapped back at me saying I was checking in another patient you can wa

Worst medical experience of my life. He gave me a fifty page pamphlet to read and assumed I was on Medicare. He also didn't seem to know about newer medicinal developments that are literally changing people's lives - mine included. Since making the decision to leave his practice I am close to remission. If I'd stayed, he likely would have of opted for surgery. He shouldn't be allowed to provide medical care for people, because he simply does not care.
