Few things turn life upside down like a cancer diagnosis! It was comforting to know that I had an experienced & determine "fighter" to help fight on my side. From surgeries to consultations, Dr Canavan always took the time I needed, came by the hospital, listened to my concerns & offered advice but ultimately let me steer my course. Along the way, every where I went (hospitals, radiologists, etc) would asked who my surgeon was... & complimented when I answered. I can't thank her enough.
She knows what she is doing. I was diagnosed in 2010, and she was very thorough and took the time to explain everything to me. She was very kind. Now, I just go to follow-up appointments. I am healthy, so I see her PA. Her staff has always been nice and helpful. The wait is usually 15 minutes. It may be a shorter wait because I see her PA.

I do not recommend and if I could put less stars I would. Dr. Canavan has no regard for the patients feelings in such a difficult time in their life. She refused to show me my results or explain the data of my cancer & was ready to push chemo on me stating that im on a need to know basis. Not only was the staff rude to me I was utterly appalled by the way my kids and myself were treated and spoken to. This was by far the worse experience of my life not to mention a 2 hour wait minimum. Horrible

Dr. Canavan is a superb physician who cares about the outcome of one's life. I was recently diagnosed with stage 1 cancer and Dr. Canavan consulted with me about the best course of action. Her staff were extremely well organized and oversaw my schedule from the day I was diagnosed to the 1-week follow-up appointment. I felt satisfied with her outstanding treatment of me and her knowledge breast cancer. Thank you!!!
