He makes you feel at ease, ad he addresses all issues with care and genuine concern. He is PCP to big brother as well.

We love Dr. Candelario!!!
Very impressed with Dr. Candelario. Nice, calm presence. Great listener. Good rapport with my son. In fact, I plan on making him my children´s primary pediatrician!
Dr. Candelario is very good at putting my sons at ease and explaining what is going on. Speaks at a level the kids understand as well as connects well with parents.
Recommended Dr. AC to all of my friends and colleagues. He has a way to calm nervous parents. My son is at a little monster stage yet he is still warm and patient. Really appreciated his flexibility in seeing us.
We absolutely love Dr. Candelario. He is great with our daughter and we never feel rushed during our appointments. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a pediatrician.
Dr. Candelario was great. Super friendly, good with our kids, etc. We might switch to him.
This was our first time seeing Dr Candelario (sp.) and I very much appreciated his manner and style of communication. He shared his expertise and answered my questions in a way that made me feel comfortable asking all of my questions, i.e. he wasn´t at all dismissive or condescending. He was great with my kid as well.
Fantastic! Followed up with a call. We needed a new pediatrician and signed up on the spot after meeting Dr. Cardelano.
Dr. Candelario was great! Spent so much time w/us!
Dr. Candelario is simply the best. He remembers everything about us, is kind, caring, and takes that little bit of extra time to make us feel welcome and in good hands. He is re-assuring, while still providing suggestions for getting second opinions from specialists about things, just to be extra sure. In this visit, which was for getting an expert opinion on something that could have been either completely innocuous or really scary, he was appropriately concerned but also not dismissive when it turned out to be nothing. He was kind, understanding, and supportive.
Great visit. We enjoyed visiting Dr. Candelario! He discussed my concerns & didn´t make me feel rushed.
Dr. C is always so warm and gentle to our baby.
He is outstanding - Best MD we´ve seen. both parents are in medicine & highly recommend Dr. Candelario.
Such a cool guy!
We love Dr. Candelario!!
My child (teen) saw doc on his own, would have been good for doctor to provide written note for aftercare so I could understand.
Great provider. I would recommend, these surveys don´t reflect his obvious competency.
