Staff is always courteous and Dr. Candelora is helpful and willing to take as much time as needed to listen. On my final visit, after receiving my state ID, I waited for 90 minutes in the examining room. It was uncomfortable and frustrating. I'm sure Dr. Candelora got backed up with other patients, but I didn't even get an apology. I'm a bit disappointed. Other appointments have gone much better, so I'm willing to give Dr. Candelora the benefit of the doubt.
Dr Candelora is very thorough, cares about you as a patient and really listens to you. His staff are pleasant and professional and his office is clean and inviting! Thank you Dr Candelora!
Do you due diligence while finding a doctor and recommendations. You are paying Candelora for 12 months whereas it costs the same amount or less with other practices that you will get 14 months (7 month checkup). His office doesn't factor in wait time until you are approved, so if it takes one or two months, then you will actually get only 10 or 11 months worth of recommendations from him. I saw a different doctor and was amazed at the knowledge and advice on using the products to get relief. Avoid this one!
The Dr. was very understanding and the office is very well organized and helpful. I'm glad that I chose this Dr.
I thank he is great he help me alot
Great professional p!ace
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. and staff are professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. Excellent experience.

Excellent doctor for spine problems.
Although it was an unusual day and they were quite busy causing an excessive wait, the doctor was professional, compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable. Definitely room for improvement on the wait time, but overall a good experience.
Dr. Candelora took the time to review my medical history and asked the right questions to understand my pain.. He is a very compassionate person and doctor. Everything went smoothly from front office staff to exit. Everyone was very caring!
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.
Very knowledgeable staff and Dr. this was a simple and pleasant visit I highly recommend Dr. Candelora

Compassionate doctor and staff.
Staff was very polite and understanding, as I had to reschedule my first appointment on short notice. Sarah worked with me every step of the way in order to make sure I filled all of the requirements. Very respectable mj program and highly recommended! Dr. Candelora has excellent bedside manner skills and is very skilled at marijuana medication therapy management!
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.
Top shelf - Very companionate and knowledgeable. Excellent staff.

Very good doctor. A++++++++++
Very nice, clean facility. Staff is very friendly and compassionate. Wait times are very minimal. Doctor is very thorough and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Pasco County Compassionate Care to others.
Being a new development, they did fantastic. They asked sincere, pertinent questions and this was treated as it should have been...medically. I have not seen a Doctor yet so the rest of the questionnaire is too soon to answer and I would probably address this questionnaire in steps...
Excellent support and assistance. Thank you!
