in Colby, Kansas |
I was recently diagnosed with a coccygeal hernia. Dr Canfield was added to the surgical team for his expertise in hernia repair. From our first pre operative meeting I was completely at ease with his knowledge and skill levels. Beyond professional and caring, I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone! He's given me fantastic post operative care! He's a top notch surgeon and a wonderful man!
