We've never met a more caring and compassionate Dr. Than Dr. Canaday. He has such an amazing Love for Life itself that he extends to his patients. My Husband Lonnie has been seeing Dr. Canaday for 17 years. Lonnie has been through 27 stents and 7 heart attacks and he is still doing well. Dr. Canaday has always given Hope and encouragement even when other Dr's said there was no more hope for him. If I was to ever recommend a cardiologist to anyone it would be Dr. Donald Canaday. We are Deeply Grateful for the years he has given my husband and the genuine Love and compassion he has so graciously shown us over the years. Sincerely Lonnie and Melissa.
