Patient Comments (8)
Stay away, I tried to get an appt with another doctor and got passed off to Dr. Candido. I can see why he does not have patients...meanwhile other same specialty practitioners are booked up,it's because he's extremely incompetent! I would avoid him at all cost! I wish I had been warned,I owe it to others to let them know what to expect so they don't go through the same horrific experience! Dr. Candido should not be practicing medicine with that attitude, lack of knowledge and poor bedside manner
Stay away... not sure how he got a license to practice. I felt compelled to write a review after my experience mainly because I fear for patient's safety. Dr. Candido lacks knowledge in his subject matter, not only is he extremely incompetent but he also has the worst bedside manner I have ever seen.

I've been a pt of Dr. Candido's for 7 mos now. I spent a year in constant severe pain before being referred. At the time of my first appt, I felt like if this didn't pan out, I was out of options. I truly feel like it was life-saving to end up in his care. The office is a clean & calm environment. All of the staff I have interacted with have been wonderful. Most importantly, Dr. Candido has worked with me to restore my quality of life & learn how to manage & care for myself with chronic pain.

I have been with Dr. Candido for quite some time. He is so dedicated to finding the stem of the pain. He has a "won't rest until we fix this" attitude which was just what I needed after 9 other dr.s said my case was to difficult for them. He is so kind and caring. I takes me 1 hour to get to Dr. Candidos office but it is totally worth every minute to have him treat me. T.R.

Work comp patients beware! This very charming IME will ease you into a euphoria of trust. And then decimate you and your character with his extremely well written report of what a burden you are on society. You're faking. You're after secondary gain, you're milingering. Say that you weren't even injured at work. DON'T TRUST HIM!

Dr. Candido has been treating me I think at least 2 yrs for EXTREME chronic face pain, he has always tried every possible option, his concern for my pain, moves me. Many Drs out there your in your out he hands you script doesn't even make eye contact .Not Dr Candido I can almost believe that it hurts him that I have to live in so much pain these last 15 yrs before meeting him as my Dr. I have told people in my support group he is the pain Dr to see, he is safe, & careful, & cares which amazes me

Dr Candido has won MANY awards for compassionate care & I can understand why, He cares & I can see in his eyes my pain IS his, it hurts him. He has such a desire to help even if it means he refers you out He will do whatever is the best care for YOU. it's not about his pocket book in the least!! I am so fortunate the day I was given his name & number. I could not be in better hands & I have hard to treat nerve pain in my face with many brain surgeries & so many turned me away Not Dr C
