Excellent Doctor.

Highly recommend Dr. Candell. Very knowledgeable, very practical, and very caring. Busy practice, so scheduling appointments can be difficult. Although other reviews have complained of the staff, my experience has always been positive.

Brian Candell, MD Orinda, CA

We were referred to Brian Candell MD about twenty years ago. He was new to the practice and I think out of school a few short years. His level of diagnosis with us, attention to detail, bedside manner, feelings of genuine concern, and all the good things associated with a good medical provider, descibes this dedicated hard working internist we were so lucky to be referred to many years ago. Brian is the real deal, and should be a poster Doc repping the AMA for an example for all other docs to aspire to. First time in my life, I have a doc that's younger than me. Cool!

Dr. Candell has been my primary care physician for many years. Since I have been in relatively good health my visits have been for annual physicals for which I needed to make the appointment a couple of months in advance. He has always taken the time to go over my test results. A couple of times when I failed to get the tests before my appointment he has called me during the weekend to discuss my test results.
