Despite continuing his hospital work, Dr. Cardona obtained certifications in hormone replacement and weight management and opened a primary care clinic and began to address hormonal issues within his primary care patients with a focus on health and disease prevention. In 2014, in order to be an example to his patients, Dr. Cardona himself went through a physical transformation and began competing in the NPC (National physique committee) ultimately obtaining IFBB professional status in 2017. Dr. Cardona now focuses on Disease Prevention by encouraging his patients maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
