Dr. Cardin is awesome! Great doctor! I am very confident in her care of my cancer treatment.
Patient | September 18, 2018

I have confidence in this care provider, but she does come across a bit cool. Not uncaring, but not a warm person; kind of standoffish a bit. And that may just be her personality all the time. She just kind of makes you feel like she is very capable, but hard to feel real comfort with. I have tried to talk to her numerous times about neuropathy that has occurred due to chemo, but she's not very helpful in giving suggestions for relief & you would just think an oncologist should be more aware of helpful products or suggestions. She just kind of gives the impression that you just kind of have to learn to live with it. But, that doesn't really apply to follow up treatments or procedures that must be done, so I do feel confident with her abilities. Just an overall lack of warmth, I guess. I'm not looking for a best friend, just a bit warmer compassion, if possible.

I was very impressed with Dr Dana Cardin; I was diagnosed with a more rare kind of cancer,and the advice that one dr gave me differed from the advice of my longtime oncologist @ Sarah Cannon Cancer Center,and I wanted to get a 3rd opinion,and Dr Cardin was extremely helpful,& agreed with my oncologist,Dr Yardley.
