Patient Comments (2)
in Buena Park, Ca. |
We have 4 children, ages 13, 11, 8, and 5. They have all been under the care of Dr. Cardenas from the moment they were born. We have loved the care and attention that she dedicates to our kids and her patients. She is very objective when determining what course of action to take. Dr. Cardenas is also not one to just prescribe medication to get the patients out of her hair, she only prescribes when needed and appropriate. Her staff has been amazing in always coordinating our appointments...
