Professionally, Dr Canes exhibits a unique combination of technical proficiency and patient empathy. He is highly competent, a recognized leader in his field, with a confident, reassuring manner. He listens carefully, he is kind and thoughtful. A remarkable surgeon.
Hudson, NH |
I was referred to Dr. Canes after results of a high PSA test. After meeting with Dr. Canes, I had a prostate biopsy and was diagnosed with intermediate prostate cancer. I chose to have Dr. Canes perform robotic prostatectomy on me and it was the best decision I could have made. Not only am I now cancer free but due to the skills of Dr. Canes, I have no side effects from the surgery. Dr. Canes is a highly skilled and compassionate physician and surgeon and I would highly recommend him.
in Webster, NH |
Very precise and meticulous, takes nothing for granted. Showed genuine concern, and treated me as a unique individual. Looked at the big picture, and made me feel at ease with his expertise.
in Nottingham, NH |
This Dr. knows his stuff. Having done hundreds of robotic surgeries he is the best. If I was told I had to do it again tomorrow, he would do it for me. Everything went as smoothly as possible with him. He was compassionate, caring, professional, and the type of Dr. a scared patient looking at prostate cancer wants to have on his side. Don't put off being checked for this disease. If it shows up with a PSA, have it taken care of. His staff of nurses are unbelievable. They are the best.
in Derry, NH |
Dr. Canes perform my radical prostatectomy in April 2016. I found him to be very thorough, patient and compassionate from initial consultation to diagnosis and treatment. I never felt like just another patient when I dealt with Dr. Canes or anyone in his staff and they really took an interest in my situation and the fact that I am a relatively young man with a family and a scary diagnosis. My surgery was successful and I am cured. I experienced NO incontinence or erectile disfunction.
in Amesbury, MA |
On Feb 23rd 2016 I was wheeled into the operating theater at Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Mass where my surgeon, Dr. David Canes, performed robotic assisted surgery to remove my prostate and lymph nodes because of a cancerous nodule on the prostate. I was so glad it was Dr. Cane who did that procedure for me. Why Dr. Canes? First because he has done this procedure over 4000 times. He usually does at least 4 robo-prostatectomies per week.
in Derry, NH |
Dr. Canes is an outstanding physician and surgeon. He removed my cancerous prostate on March 21, 2016. His technical expertise is superior. He carefully took the time to outline the procedure I had in advance, even drawing a picture for a visual learner like myself to help me understand the nature of the operation. The care he took to follow up with me after the surgery was also excellent. I would highly recommend without reservation Dr. Canes as a urologist and surgeon to anyone.
in Pepperell, ma |
Very patient, explained everything, excellent staff From the front desk in Derry, nh to the nurses and physicians assistant. This is how health care should be!
in Maine |
