What People Say About Dr. Leonardo Canessa, MD
Reply
Dr Canessa was very hard to understand and took offense when I asked him to repeat himself. He questioned the way we raise our daughter for minor things like avoiding potential allergens and made me feel judged as a mother. He did his job in managing my daughter’s renal reflux but his bedside manner is less than desirable.

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. We spent two hours with him and all he didn't was put my daughter down emotionally. My daughter was in tears when we left because he was so mean to her. We were there for a kidney issue and he was taking about everything else that was wrong with her.
