Dr. Kano is a truly understanding doctor who is very knowledgeable and kind. I'm always comfortable talking with him and as a teen back then, he always told me what bad things to stay away from-almost like a mentor. He shows that he cares and educates you about everything he diagnoses you with.

I my experience, in being a patient for almost 2 years Dr Cano has been great. Dr. Cano is extremely knowledgeable and caring. He honestly takes an interest in his patients health issues and truly relates well with those of us dealing with chronic pain. Dr. Cano's personal assistant Olga is equally great. Olga has always been helpful and diligent, she is always available to help. Unfortunately, I suffer from chronic pain issues resulting from 'fail back surgery syndrome, they are great!!
