I can say everyone in the Doctors office named at the beginning of this survey were so very professional and concerned about your problem you came for. I never had to wait long at my appointments. The medical secretary at this office is exceptional, caring and kind!!!

i received great care from Dr. Cordero when I needed emergency closed loop small bowel obstruction surgery back in December. He was kind, understanding and supportive. He took time to listen to my questions and concerns. He took the time necessary to answer those questions and explain my situation thoroughly. I feel very lucky to have ended up in the care of such a great doctor, especially considering the somewhat extreme and urgent circumstances i found myself in at the time. I feel lucky again now knowing he will be doing the surgery on my hernia. Having great trust and confidence in my doctor allows me to feel more comfortable about having to undergo another operation.

Both the physician and the nurse were excellent. I was very nervous for the visit, as I have never had wound packing changed. the nurse was amazing and gentle, and the physician talked to me while she put new packing in to distract me. I was very pleased with the visit.
