Dr.Kann is the best doctor I have ever had. I came to him with some very serious health issues caused by another hospital and he took me in under his wing and nursed me back to good health. He explains everything to me throughly even drawing pictures to help me understand what is going on. He is the best hands down and I'm so blessed to have found him. It makes a big difference when you can actually trust and feel safe with your surgeon.
