What People Say About Dr. David Kanarek, MD
Reply Flag
Dr. Kanarek was patient, kind, compassionate, & thorough. He is a brilliant physician! He & his friendly staff facilitated ALL of the tests that I unexpectedly needed & had them done for me THAT very same day - including x-rays, breathing tests, blood work, etc. When All of my tests were over, Dr. Kanarek carefully explained the results & possible causes of my problem. He helped me to clearly understand & reviewed my treatment plan with me. I have never received this level of care!
