About Carlos Cardenas MD, in his own words
The mind-body connection is very important to me. In my practice, I use conventional medicine combined with a holistic approach. I believe patients should receive comprehensive information about each option so that they can make the best decisions about their healthcare.
I will be happy to advise you on any of your healthcare needs, ranging from regular annual exams to menopause management. As a gynecologist, my philosophy is to always listen to the patient as they discuss their concerns. I take pride in getting to know each of my patients. As your San Antonio GYN, I vow to provide the best and most personalized care possible.
I am proud to say I have been married for over 40 years. My wife and I have two children and two grandchildren. In my spare time, I am very active and enjoy playing golf, traveling, exercising and spending time with family. I find myself having more energy than ever before due to my focus on eating healthier, exercising and using Dr. C Vitamins.
