As a Fort Collins native, Dr. Cardon is living his dream of returning to his hometown. After graduating from Poudre High School Dr. Cardon received a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Translation from Brigham Young University in 2012, followed by a degree in Osteopathic Medicine from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona in 2018. During his time in medical school Dr. Cardon also completed a one-year student fellowship in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Dr. Cardon completed his residency in Fort Collins at Poudre Valley Hospital in Family Medicine in June 2021 where he served as chief resident during his last year of residency.
Through his time in medical school and residency Dr. Cardon saw time and time again patient care compromised because of obstacles in the healthcare system. He was determined to find a way to not let this system force him to compromise the care of his patients which led to his passion for direct primary care. He is also passionate about lifestyle medicine and the use of osteopathic manipulative medicine in patient care.
Dr. Cardon and his wife Allison, also a Fort Collins native, were married in 2009 and have three kids. They have always dreamed of returning to raise their family in the same community they grew up loving. The Cardons are thrilled to be back in Fort Collins.
In his free time Dr. Cardon enjoys road biking, golfing, watching college football, cheering on his Broncos, and cooking (especially on the smoker).
