    I was going to take my husband for a 2nd opinion but after meeting Dr Cordova we felt very confident with him and decided we wanted to stay with him. My husband and I feel very comfortable with him!

    All the doctors in the lung transplant program are great. I adored Dr [...]. And, it was an easy transition to Dr. Cordova. I always leave Dr Cordova feeling that he genuinely cares about me and my progress. He smiles, he laughs, he double checks the various reports. (Sometimes even double checks my answers.) I'm sure others feel the same way, but for sure I often feel like he's family.
