I went to Dr Canale after two years of dealing with stomach problems and having not answers from my family doctor and another physician. He was very good at listening during the first appointment while I explained my symptoms and concerns. He scheduled both an endoscopy and colonoscopy. For both of these procedures he was very attentive. His office personnel is kind and understanding. Cons: After many attempts with medication, my symptoms were not relieved. The last few appointments (because results from procedures) he sent me with his Physician assistant who kept saying I did not have anything. I ended up at the Emergency room having emergency surgery to rewove my gallbladder and appendix. I decided to come one more time to let them know the results and they only answer was: your symptoms were not obvious. My review is an attempt to help good doctors look beyond the book, Dr Canale listens but he does not look beyond obvious symptoms and the first resource is medication

Dr. Christopher Canale is an OUSTANDING physician. He is caring and compassionate. Dr. Canale takes time to get to know the patient and understand what their issues are. He discusses with the patient the best way to "attack" the issue in the most efficient and effective manner. The most important factor for me is I trust Dr. Canale, I trust his wisdom and experience. Within reason, he is open to experimenting with identifying solutions.

I've had Dr Canale for 10 year's and I wouldn't trade him in for anything, he's taken great care of myself and my husband, he is skilled and very knowledgeable in every aspect, and we are impressed with his knowledge and treatment of superior mesenteric artery syndrome, celiac, Barrett's esophagus, and much more. He's very thorough and extremely well mannered. You couldn't get any better!

Dr. Canale is everything you want in a Doctor. He is extremely kind and understanding. He listens to you and expresses sincere compassion and empathy. I cannot say enough good things about him. I haven't seen him in over 2 years, but his genuine concern is something I will never forget. I wish him all the best and hope he never loses what makes him such a special doctor.

I am a retired medical administrator. As you might imagine, I've been around the healthcare system a bit. Let me say that after meeting him and experiencing first hand Dr Canale's surgical skills, I would wholeheartedly recommend him as your colon specialist. He's proficient and professional. And besides he's friendly too boot. His clinical staff in the endoscopy center is spot on as well. Try him out. I think you'll be pleased.

Dr. Canale is extremely knowledgeable and I trust him completely. I went to him based on glowing reviews from friends/family and was not disappointed. He is also very practical, honest, and realistic. He is a refreshing doctor to see who cares a lot and knows a lot. All of his staff were very kind. He put me right at ease because of his confidence and easy-going/fun attitude. I drove all the way up from Provo to Bountiful for an appointment and if I ever have more GI trouble, will do it again.
