Dr Cangas is from Dallas City, IL. He married his wife Zoe (rhymes with Joe) in February, 2014. They have a daughter, Alexis (12), 2 yo baby Ellyn, and a little boy due March, 2017. After high school, Joe served in the. Army.. He then attended Southeastern Community College, Western Illinois University, and the University of Illinois College of Medicine. His pediatric residency was completed at the University of Missouri in 2004. He enjoys watching college sports, is a Cardinals fan, is an active member of the Columbia and Crestwood/Sunset Hills Kiwanis, and a board member of Life Network of Southern Illinois. After working in Salem, IL for two years, he wanted to be closer to 'the city'. So, in 2006, he started Illini Pediatrics, after seeing the need for a pediatrician in Monroe County. In 2015, Dr Cangas discovered a huge need in the community for after hours care to prevent urgent care and E.R. visits; thus the beginning of the walk-in clinic. Since then, he has decided to open a second practice in St Louis to offer the same great care and convenient hours. Dr Cangas hopes that together Ideal Pediatrics, Illini Pediatrics and Helmets First, he will keep the children of the area safe and healthy.

Learn about Dr. Cangas
We respect all parents' decisions on their child's care, however, we practice evidence based medicine, and follow protocol on scientifically proven effective methods of treatment. So much of children's health, especially in childhood and adolescence is behaviorally modeled- meaning parents that lead by example by eating well, sleeping sufficiently, creating safe and loving home environments can create an environment more suitable for a child to grow and thrive in. We will always listen to a parent's concern, and will try our best to come to the safest method to treat your child which will make the parent feel comfortable, but most importantly will also be the best treatment for your child.
At Illini Pediatrics and Ideal Pediatrics, we truly do treat your children like our own. We want all children to be loved, and have an opportunity for a healthy and long life. By providing the best possible service, we hope that you can call us your medical home.
