Dr Canakis is the best in his field in our area. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, patient and caring. He spends as much time with me as needed; I wouldn’t consider seeing anyone else in the local area. Whenever his name pops up in conversation its always the same, everyone speaks positively about him. He’s extremely trustworthy.

Dr. Canakis has a very condescending attitude toward patients. He is unwilling to put the time/effort into solving medical issues. Many GI Drs. are more competent and forward thinking than Dr. Canakis and in my opinion would be a better choice.

I saw Dr. Canakis several times when I first arrived in DE 9 years ago. I was satisfied with his performance. For my follow-up after 7 years Dr. Canakis office assigned me to his new PA without asking. I was not pleased, but my wife encouraged me to go to the pre-colonoscopy appointment. Upon arrival I was ignored by the staff. Finally got called back and was barked at and left in the small room for about 10 minutes. I left and am not pleased. Would never recommend due to staff!!!

Met Dr C during an er visit where he was the GI on call....called and dumped my current GI the very next day. The man is amazing. I have Crohns disease and thanks 98 percent to him, I am in complete remission. I am sure there are other good doctors out there, but no one can come close to his bedside matter and the way his entire staff treats all their patients. He takes the time to make sure you feel like you matter....Dr C rules!
