In April 2007, I had a seizure, and was diagnosed with a meningioma, Surgery needed to be done quickly, so I had no time to shop for a neurosurgeon. Fortunately, I have made a full recovery, and even 10 years later I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Canute and his staff. His pre-surgery consultation showed extreme confidence, and Dr. Canute's approach was very re-assuring to me. Neurosurgery is a risky procedure, but even a skilled neurosurgeon can't always be successful.

Dr. Canute may be a good neurosurgeon but he doesn't care about his patients! I would recommend that you ALWAYS bring another person with you to ALL your appts. who can act as a witness to what is discussed. If you have a choice, see someone else.

After six weeks of excruciating pain, multiple tests, and medications that had no effect. Dr. Canute listened, he was so very compassionate and was truly concerned about my pain. Together we came up with a plan and while the pain remains for a short time longer, Dr. Canute gave me hope for recovery. Dr. Canute is not only a gifted physician, he is also wonderfully kind. Two thumbs up for certain.

Absolutely fantastic doctor. He and his staff were always available to me and treated me like a human being not some paycheck. I was very scared prior to my surgery and Dr. Canute and his Nurse practitioner Linda Casey set me and my family at ease. I arrived on the day of surgery unable to use my left leg and in excruciating pain and woke up post surgery with full mobility and almost no pain. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Canute and his practice.

RUN AWAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This doctor is reckless, arrogant, rude and butchers patients ! He doesnt consult with a team of doctors before performing surgery "never had a problem" that turned into nothing but complications. As a result my step father seized on table, had several strokes (still doesnt speak), is paralized on the right side, lost part of his skull due to meningitis from dirty utensils used during surgery.Then after surgery in ICU wait and see is all you hear no medical analysis
