Dr. Candelora and his staff were very professional and thorough. I have been battling chronic pain for several years. I have been extremely scared to take narcotic pain pills. Dr Candelora is a very compassionate Orthopedic Surgeon who cares about the well being of his patients so he became certified in medical marijuana recommendations in order to offer another method of pain management for patients like myself, as well as others who may not tolerate certain pharmaceutical medications. I've heard many great things about Dr. Candelora as an Orthopedic Surgeon so it was a no brainier that he was who I chose to review my health issues and decide if I was a good candidate for medical marijuana. I'm very happy I did! Thank you Dr. Candelora and Sarah!!

Dr. Candelora and his staff are exceptional. I have been to many Dr.'s the last 37 yrs. to get help for my pain and I rate him in my top 4 physicians. He listened to my needs and was very compassionate and thorough in explaining the whole process and what I could expect from the use of medical marijuana. I would highly recommend Dr. Candelora and his staff to anyone who is seeking help with their medical and pain management needs.

Dr. Candelora is also my Orthropedics dr and has preformed many surgeries on me. He always is very professional. He is one of the finest and compassionate drs in the area. I’ve been on pain meds since 2002 after I broke my back and had a total fusion done. I’m hoping the marijuana will help with the constant pain I go thru daily.

I'm sure that Dr. Candelora is an excellent doctor but I would love to have his directions in writing. Being a senior citizen I forget some things by the time I get home. I hope that the next time I call in with a problem the office person will either offer to have the doctor call me back or give me an appointment to come in. I'm still hoping that the Medical Marijuana will give me some relief from my pain.
