Dr. Cordero saved my life - his skill and genuine desire to help a sick human being shine when he speaks to you - I refer to him as " Dr. Cordero, My Surgical Hero". I have had 4 major surgeries in my life, and Dr. Cordero is absolutely the finest surgeon that I have ever been fortunate enough to be a patient of. I had acute renal failure and was more dead than alive and Dr. Cordero reached into the well of my despair and lifted me into the light of day. Words cannot express the gratitude and admiration that I have for this outstanding surgeon and healer.

I was very impressed with how prepared Dr. Cordero was on my visit. That visit was my first time meeting him and he asked detailed questions about my medical history which proved he had read my medical records prior to my visit.

Very good experience for wound care. Would definitely recommend.

I was treated with utmost care and respect from Dr. Cordero and his staff.

The entire office is exceptional. I have always had a very positive experience while I am there. It stinks that I have the health issue that I do but they make the experience as good as it can be. Dr Cordero is great to deal with. He explains things thoroughly and so that it is understood. Also, his office staff is some of the best in the business. Jan, Melanie, Holly and Brandy are great and need to be rewarded for being as good as they are. They make the entire process much more tolerable than I would have expected.

October 10, 2016

Dr. Cordero was very friendly, honest and knowledgeable. He was not pushy about doing gallbladder surgery, explained procedure and risks thoroughly, and left the decision about surgery up to me.

October 03, 2016

No complaints, he was great.
