Dr. Candela is amazing. He and his staff are very friendly and professional. I feel happy and lucky that I found his office for my surgery. Thank you.
in Encino, Ca |
Office was pleasant, as was the staff. Dr. Candela was excellent and caring , and remedied a problem from a previous physician's surgery. I was very satisfied with the treatment and results.
in Calabasas, CA |
Dr. Candela recently performed a robotic inguinal hernia surgery on me at Providence Medical Center in Tarzana, CA. He is an amazing surgeon. This was my first surgery ever. But I have to say, that II had very little discomfort after the procedure, and within 12 hours I was past the discomfort, and feeling like I was on the path to healing. I would highly recommend Dr. Candela to anyone!
in Winnetka |
My three experiences with Dr. Candela performing surgery were excellent. He is dedicated to his patients and ensures that they get the best care possible. I would recommend him to any family member, knowing they would be in the best care possible.
