Welcome to Cardenas Internal Medicine
About My Concierge Medicine Practice
My mission in a concierge medicine practice is to educate, collaborate with and ultimately empower my patients to make informed decisions on their healthcare. It’s very much of a partnership, as together we explore how to best treat their medical issues in a way that matches their lifestyle and vision of care.Patients are much more than their diagnosis, and the ability to connect with them in a holistic and very personal way is the way I want to practice, and how everyone deserves to be treated. These relationships have been lost in the rushed, mainstream medical model and I cherish the opportunity to restore them in my concierge medicine practice. Contact us today!

Learn More About Concierge Medicine With Dr. Cardenas
Concierge medicine, also known as membership medicine, is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. In exchange for the retainer, doctors provide enhanced care, including principally a commitment to limit patient loads to ensure adequate time and availability for each and every patient.
