Dr. Cardenas is an amazingly caring and professional cardiologist. He takes time to listen to the patient and to answer any questions one may have. I have complete confidence in him, and am always willing to refer him to anyone who is in need of a cardiologist. His exemplary personality is equally reflected by his front-office staff. Roxana and Leydi have always been extremely polite, helpful, and keep you updated on your wait time. My compliments to Dr. Cardenas, Roxana, and Leydi! Keep it up!

Awful bedside manner, I had an allergic reaction to one of the medications administered during procedure. Neither Dr. Cardenas or his team would listen as my tongue swelled, throat tightened. One of his nurses insisted I couldn't be allergic .... I had been admisistered benedryl prior - thankfully or could have been worse. Thankful I was in hospital and returned to room with icthy throat and rash to get more Benedryl. He and my primary dr (way worse) are part of what's wrong with healthcare.

Dr. Caredenas gave me false" sense of comfort. I went to get procedure only to find out they were only doing half of it, because the other half Dr. Cardenas informed me this was a "quality of life issue " I guess that's true if you would like to be able to breathe and go a day without chest pains. I am existing not living. I am scared to death about procedure and he was very rude and cruel. I didn't expect this from him. I am disappointed at the bedside manner of Dr. Cardenas. His nurse agreed

I have complete confidence in Dr Cardenas ability. He is professional, personable and one never feels rushed or unheard. He spends as much time as a patient needs and I feel at ease with him as my cardiac physician and would highly recommend him to friends, family and clients.
