Dr. Cardon has just about the best bedside manner I've seen. He takes the time to really discuss what has happened ad will be happening. When I had a complaint about the anesthesiologist that the hospital assigned (they started to put me out before even telling me what was going on!), the next time he made sure I had someone that would walk me through the process (it was really cool seeing them lay things out on my body -- the more I understand what is happening, the more comfortable about the process I am). He tells you what he thinks as well as what he knows (not just a difference of semantics). He'll even tell you when you'd be better served by someone else. I can't say enough good things.
