My OB-GYN recommended her right after i delivered my son. I trusted my doctor and agreed to have her be the pediatrician that made the hospital visit to examine my son. She was friendly in the hospital and we didnt think twice when she told us to schedule an appointment for 2 weeks.
We went to his 2 week appointment and it was a completely different story.
The building she works out of looks like its falling apart.. in fact it was, we were afraid to take the elevator because it appeared parts of it were being kept together with duct tape, we get to her office, and found out that we had to leave our stroller out in the hallway. we wernt allowed to bring it into the office with us, This turned my husband and i off because it was obviously brand new and we were in a shady area of Anaheim and already didnt feel safe in the building. Her office was a wreck. the carpets hadnt been vacuumed, the walls were dirty, there was a smell of what i would identify as mold in the air. Her staff was really friendly, when i asked where a bathroom was so i could change my sons diaper, they told us they would get an exam room ready, but we still had to wait 10/15 minutes more before they took us back. we got into the exam room and even that was dirty, there were crumbs on the exam table, so it wasnt cleaned before they put the paper down on it, if they even changed the paper, im not sure. the vents were covered in dust and cob webs, the walls were dirty, and the trash cans were full.
when Dr Cardenas did come in to the room, one of the first things she said was scolding me for drinking a soda, she said she *and i quote* "I dont care if you get fat and become a diabetic" she then went on to tell me that i was going to make my son hyper because of my caffeine intake... there are 3 things wrong with what she said other than being incredibly rude 1: I am 2 weeks out of delivery and im back in my pre-pregnancy clothes *I wear a size 6*
2: She doesnt know me, who is she to assume im not drinking Iced tea or Sprite, you couldnt tell by the cup i had in my hand.
and 3: My son was awake and QUIET! he didnt fuss when she poked and picked at him, he was FAR from hyper... She was so rude, my husband almost had to hold me back. She did tell me that my son is perfect, Thank the Lord he is healthy, but she ended the appointment with telling me to completely disregard what the hospital had told me about umbilical cord care, and use alcohol because it will make it fall off faster... Sorry B**** you just insulted me, why would i listen to you. I also went home and looked up umbilical cord care, and its widely known now NOT to use alcohol because it not only irritates their sensitive skin and burns, but it actually takes it LONGER to fall off. Besides... it fell off on its own the next day...
Needless to say...we took the stairs to leave, couldnt get out of there fast enough, gave my son a bath when he got home, and already have another pediatrician interviewed and chosen for his 2 month appointment.

I would recomend Dr. Samara Cardenas to anyone who has children particuarly children with asthma. My son has been seeing her for a year now and I must say I absolutely love that woman she has my ultimate respect as a person and a Doctor. My son has asthma and it is severe he is 7 and his whole life untill we found Dr. Cardenas seemed like one long scary hospital visit this kid was in the hospital almost like every month. I was getting ridiclous and I was getting upset I have asthma my self and none of the doctors I was taking him to would listen or try to help him gain control of it my child couldn't even get too excited and laugh because if he laughed for too long he went right into an asthma attackThen we moved and I researched many Doctors and then one day we walked into her office and I was extremely anoyed because we had watied for almost forty five min. befor we were called back...And then she walked into the room and my anger turned into understanding it took so long because she is very personable and very caring and treats all her little paitents with genuine care and respect and you can see it in her eyes she is sincere and you can see by the way she interacts with your child that she loves them all and loves her perfession. My son always cried because he had to go to the doctor and always told me he hates the doctors and the doctors officeThat first day when we left from Dr Cardenas office my son for the first time didnt say anything negativE He said "Mommy can I always come to this doctor? I liked her she was nice and Mommy she didnt just only talk to you she talked to me first and she let me tell her how I felT. Also just so you all know my son has had 0 visits to the hospital for asthma under the care of Dr Cardenas! She has his asthma under control as well as his alergies and he is a much happier stronger little boy and I dont have to worry about him as much when he is away from home. He can finally PLAY and LAUGH like a little boy should be able to.
