Dr. Canavan was my mothers doctor when she was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer. His level of professionalism and knowledge is only surpassed by his compassion for his patients. His staff is amazing, very loving and know how to treat their patients. Dr. Canavan and his partners are always respectful of their patients time and take the time to explain everything. I could not ask for a beter doctor.
