Welcome

Thank you for your interest in our practice, and taking the time to see what we offer.

We have almost 40 years combined experience caring for patients.  Each individual patient has had surgical and medical issues that range from basic straightforward issues, to complex problems requiring a coordinated team approach from several physician specialists.

Our background includes both surgical and post-surgical training at respected university centers.  Dr. Candela has completed his oncology fellowship at Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and Dr. Schreier completed his oncology fellowship at University of Southern California Kenneth Norris Cancer Center.

We have brought this state of the art university training to our community.  We continue to stay abreast of current innovations and implement those practices that benefit our patients.

Our office is easily accessible for consultations, and for urgent or emergent care if needed.  Unlike a university center, you have access to our knowledge and expertise directly.  If you or a family member has any questions, please do not hesitate to call for a consult, or second opinion.

Our website will detail what areas we focus on.  We have access to an array of specialists that are equally well trained and respected.  We work closely with other physicians as needed, and will bring more complicated issues to our multidisciplinary meetings at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center.

Helping our patients make educated decisions about their health care is very important to us.  We educate our patients on all of their options and address any questions or concerns they may have. In order to ensure that a patient is receiving the best care possible, we maintain contact with the primary care physician and any other specialists necessary.

Some of the services we provide include:

Patient health and satisfaction are top priorities at our office. We strive to schedule new patient appointments within 48 hours if needed, and always have a physician on call.

For more information, please contact us today to schedule an appointment.
