Never! Candelora takes on perfect patients and is solely interested in financial matters. Had my record totally incorrect in what procedures were completed and will check insurance to see if they were billed for services never preformed. Terrible experience and would never recommend.

I'm impressed. I saw Dr. last week and it took him no more than 20 minutes to assess my situation. This man is highly qualified to interpret what X-rays show him and package that all up in a diagnosis of the problem. He provided a simple explanation of the issues present and gave me a choice of possible procedures required to resolve my shoulder problem. His many years of repairing faulty joints is evident by his knowledge of the bodies anatomy. I highly recommend him. His staff is equally great

I have been having terrible pain in my neck and my hand. I had a visit with Dr. Candelora and he explained to me what he felt could be the cause of all this. He went into detail about a treatment plan that worked for both of us. I am very happy with this and will be returning for follow up visits.

Dr Candelero did a Total Right Hip Replacement for me on 9/27/2017. I have had very little pain, surgical incision is healing very well, and no complications. Dr Candelero is your Doctor for Orthopedics.....best of the best!!!

I was pleasantly surprised with my experience with this office. From the beginning when I called to schedule my appointment to checking out, the entire office staff and Doctor were great. Dr Candelora was able to help me understand where my pain was coming from and I am already starting to get some relief. I would definitely recommend this Doctor

Thank you for being patient with me. I felt like the staff has compassion and cares. Enjoyed my visit it's was pleasant. There was some miss communication that was given to the doctor about being able to use a temporary card. It's wasn't your fault.
