What People Say About Dr. Emily Cannon, MD
Reply
I've seen Dr. Cannon twice. Once for a carbuncle on my leg and another time for colonoscopy. She was kind and empathetic both times. Very skilled and knowledgeable. The nice finishing touch the last time was her calling personally to give me the benign pathology results from my colonoscopy.
