Patient Comments (6)
in Canoga Park, CA |
I met with Dr. Candela to discuss my options for potential surgery for a "Large Ventral Hernia." Dr. Candela examined me and explained that due to the unique nature of my hernia he wanted to consult with some colleagues to discuss the best possible way to repair it. Dr. Candela got back to me in a timely manner and gave me a detailed analysis of the best route to take. After surgery he walked me through a step by step recovery process, I'm 7 weeks post surgery and making a full recovery.

If there would be 10 star option then Dr. Candela would've gotten it! Excellent personality, very good and mostly caring doctor! My son had bilateral inguinal hernia. Dr Candela was prompt with scheduling all required steps and services. Surgery was a success, post ops visits as pleasant. We definitely would recommend him to anyone in need!

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.
