Best mannered Dr. that I have ever used. He is the reason I have full motion . fealing and strength back in both arms. And Dr Pagano gave me almost full motion in my neck after he put in a plate & 6 screws for C-4 C-5. C-6. Won't go anywhere else

The care I received from Dr. Canizares and his staff was outstanding! Very kind and considerate. Shoulder surgery was scary, but they made me comfortable and relatively pain free. They worked around my schedule and needs.
