This was my first visit with the doctor and it could not have gone better. I've never had a doc spend as much time listening and taking notes as he did- our initial consult ended up being a full hour. I'ma competitive distance runner and highly recommend him if you're young and fit and trying to figure out issues related to athletic performance.

Dr. Cardoos is amazing! I'm a new patient so he knew nothing about me but he made sure to take the time to really get to know me as a person in order to understand me better. He's very patient, understanding,and non judgmental! I felt very comfortable with him as my doctor and after one visit he has my full faith and trust. Excellent.

He was really kind and very communicative and clear with my teenaged son. We did have to wait a really long time for him to get his vaccinations because the nurse had gone to the post office. That was less than ideal.

As a new patient, I was appreciative of Dr. Cardoos' welcoming personality, and his willingness to dive not into my current state of health but also my whole health history as a way of better understanding how he can assist mein the future. The facility was great, and the desk staff were equally helpful.

This was my first time consulting with a doctor in the US. As I did not have any recommendations, I selected a family/primary care doctor and Dr. Nathan had availability within a suitable schedule. My choice was also based on hisreviews in Zocdoc. I must say he is just awesome. My expectations were far beyond met. He is the kind of person you feel comfortable with to discuss your concerns in a very professional but at the same time relaxed way. I do strongly recommend him.

He is my entire family's primary care doctor and we love how well he listens to our concerns, performs an examination, and only then does he recommend a course of action. He's open minded and that's refreshing because so many doctorsjudge your situation before you even walk in the door.

The office was very efficient. I was called in by the MA before I had finished my intake paperwork, and Dr. Cardoos was in to see me almost instantly. This was my first visit with him, and he took the timeto get to know me and do a very detailed social history (probably most important with someone in their 20s). Very thorough, spent more time with me than I expected. I'd highly recommend him.
