Egotistical maniac

This surgeon has a god complex. He is incredibly condescending toward patients and even hospital staff. He's very arrogant for somebody that has injured several people's aortas. Learn from my experience and avoid this guy.

Highly Recommend!!!

Great Dr., Can't say enough about him. He was very encouraging, knowledgeable and his prediction of what was going on in my body was right on. I had a hysterectomy, He did a great job. Very minimal scarring with help from the robotic surgery. I'm very grateful that I was sent to him.

After a year of not knowing what was wrong, I was finally diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer, and referred to Dr. Cardosi. He and his staff made me feel comfortable, and hopeful about my treatment. They gave me encouragement, and yet Dr. Cardosi was frank and upfront. I am alive today because of the care and expertise of Dr. Cardosi.
