    I like Dr Cannestra because he's straight to the point, nononsense. As a retired operating room health care employee I truly appreciate this. I've had four previous spinal surgeries prior to finding Dr Cannestra. He repaired my current problem and is going to correct some previous failed fusions. I didn't want to continue with the previous surgeon and couldn't find another that would touch me. Dr Cannestra has done a great job for me for this surgery and I will only allow him to operate on me.

    Dr. Cannestra did a Chiari Malformation with syringomyelia surgery on me back in June. Dr. Cannestra was very thorough and informative. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Cannestra and Dean and the care I received. The only complaint I would have is that Laura his medical assistant is not very prompt or thorough.

    I had spinal fusion L5/S1 on 4/29/16. Dr. Cannestra was very kind, patient and thorough in answering all of our questions regarding my options, surgery, post op and life expectations. I can't say enough positive things about him, Dean and Laura who have been so helpful in every step of the way. The only negative would be how long it took for the initial appointment but that was the case with ALL neurosurgeons in Jax - especially the top notch ones like Dr. Cannestra! I'm a thankful patient!
