Dr. Candocia has provided the highest level of care possible for my father, dealing with multiple complex ailments. Dr. Candocia is extremely attentive, advocates for his patients, explains treatments and choices in clear terms, exhaustively investigates all possible treatments, returns calls quickly, is available for the questions and concerns of family members, and is just simply a good doctor. I am absolutely certain that Dr. Candocia has extended my father's life by more than a decade.

He is smart and caring. He spends whatever time my needs require so I never feel rushed. He seems to do this for all his patients so sometimes he gets behind schedule. But this is a problem I willingly accept for the quality of care he provides

Dr. Candocia was recommended to us over a decade ago by a nurse we respect highly. He has proven to be very intelligent and competent, and also thorough and compassionate. He diagnosed a rare condition of my wife's on her first visit to him. But note that any doctor who is willing to give you all the time you need on each visit will also do the same for the patients scheduled ahead of you, so sometimes you may have to wait. It sure beats assembly line medicine.

Extremely intelligent, professionally skilled, detail oriented, up-to-date and well-read, Dr. Candocia is the most CARING physician imaginable. He never gives you the impression he's rushing, and works to address emotional as well as physical needs. He's calm, thoughtful, and extremely responsive. His analytical brilliance literally saved my sister from dying of lung cancer. The biggest heart and one of the best minds among primary care physicians. Thank God for doctors like him.
