Dr. Francis DeCandis feels fortunate to have turned his childhood interests into a long, rewarding career as a board-certified family physician. From his humble upbringing, he was taught to always respect seniors—and early on he became passionate about caring for the underserved. “I am here to help them lead a healthier lifestyle, understand conditions they may have, and navigate their healthcare journey,” Dr. DeCandis says. “It really is a privilege to be allowed to care for my patients.”
During down time, he keeps up with advances in his field and feels blessed to spend time with his son and grandson. Dr. DeCandis also likes to play guitar, play music with other musicians, go sailing, and practice and teach Christian meditation.
