My appointment was 10:00 a.m. but Dr. Cardenas arrived at 11:10 a.m.. A horrible wait of one hour. The longest wait I have ever done for a physician. She did not apologize nor did she make a comment about excusing herself. I thought that was very very rude. After she was through she simply said.." Now follow me" and left. She didn't even say goodbye. I can hardly wait for Dr. Lekkala to return from Texas. I also don't think Dr. Cardenas is very thorough about her check up. Since I suffer from headaches and I get them when I don't have lunch at my appointed time of lunch (which is 11:00a.m.) I developed a headache.) I told her about my headache. She didn't even care. What a rude doctor. I do not look forward to my next appointment with her. She will probably be late again and will have to bring my lunch and eat at the waiting room. Shocks!!!

All of my experiences have been good. I wish that Dr. Cardenas had more time to spend with me, but I do realize that she has many other patients to see. I truly appreciate the short time that we do spend together, and the fact that she is very communicative both in person and via email.

I Love this provider, but the last two times I have seen her, I have had to wait one hour plus. I usually get there early, so they don't have to wait for me. It would be nice if I didn't have to wait that long!

The care and attention I receive from Dr. Cardenas and the entire Facey staff is unparalleled!Recently my health insurance carrier has changed and Facey Medical is no longer available through them.

This appointment went just as I would have expected from a Facey doctor. She listened to what I had to say and was very patient with me while I expressed my fears and concerns. She started a plan for diagnosis.

When calling in the nurse & whoever I spoke to at the time did not help me at all. Instead they were rude, did not remove phone numbers from the list and never called me back.

dr. Cardenas herself was excellent in explaining my situation and more the willing to provide me with outside resources if I was not happy with her diagnosis, which was unnecessary. She seems to be an excellent and understanding neurologist and I look forward to working with her in the future.

She is the most caring of all my doctors. She is always there for me when I needed her. If I sent her message either to talk to her or need to see due to my medical problems, she call me or fit me into her tight schedule. She is amazing -
