In my experience, Dr. Joseph Cardianale did not care nor was he interested in my medical needs when it came to my pain mgmt healthcare. He was 100% indifferent w/his attitude towards me & how his attitude affected my life, In my opinion he should have only practiced anesthesiology. I would tell anyone to choose ANY OTHER doctor @ his practice, Orlin & Cohen/Northwell, rather then seek medical care from him. This review of Dr. Cardinale is a lot nicer than how he actually treated me. This review is in my opinion & allegedly. Also, since he is part of a much larger practice I have signed it anonymously & have not used my email address for fear of retribution & retaliation from his Practice & colleagues. I need to be able to seek medical help from his Practice & those owned by Northwell, as it is the largest private medical practice in NYS.

I was in extreme pain from nerve compression in lumbar spine. Could not sleep or drive and could barely walk. Dr Cardinale performed epidural steroid injections and has been doing so periodically for the last three years. It is the only way I am able to go to work and function until I am able to possibly have surgery. The relief after each injection has been nothing short of miraculous. He's a true healer.

This is a doctor/practice review of Orlin and Cohen (Specifically Dr Cardinale from Merrick). I met him for the first time on my birthday Aug 15. We agreed I needed a shot to my spine for pain. I was scared and said I would call him asap when I get my nerve up. He said no problem. I called back in October to schedule the shot. I was told I had to see him again because his notes didn't say I could have the shot. I waited a few week until Nov 2 to see him again. I explained that I lost weeks (in pain) to see him to again discuss the shot we already agreed on. I said it's a $40 copay everytime I see him. He left me in the exam room to speak to the office mgr who agreed to write off/ adjust the copay because he didn't write good enough notes. He even said, I am so sorry, it was my fault. I was scheduled for the shot 2 weeks later I think. I have been receiving bills for the day he said would be written off. I have called every time and to no avail. The customer service reps

As a Healthcare professional it was a major disappointment that I was treated as a # in a factory! No compassion/empathy, or listening skills toward my pain. In-correct information is passed on to insurance company, including wrong location of anatomical concern. I was requested to seek a consult with another specialty as requirement to pursue the recommended treatment by Dr Cardinale. He was to f/u so all would be approved to proceed; which he never did even after many phone calls/e-mails.
