I am fortunate to have Dr. Cardenas as my surgeon. He is very caring and considerate. He explained in lay terms to my family so they knew what to expect and f/u care l needed. I would highly recommend him.

I'm going back for seconds....no, thirds...no, fourths....or maybe fifths?

Doctor Cardenas spent something like four hours relieving me of "The World's Lagest Goiter" in 1994. Then, a few years later, he hacked a couple of sebaceous cysts off the back of my neck. After that, he removed one from my "Unhunh." Now I think I'll go back and have him whack out a ganglion cyst on my wrist that a lesser surgeon worked on a while back that just became twice as bad. I'm betting Doc Mike will "giterDONE!" (By the way, anybody ever wonder why it is that the ONE bad review for a man as good as Doctor Cardenas was written by an illiterate?)
