Something has changed in this office. Several years ago, when I was diagnosed, I found Dr. Canavan and her staff to be wonderful. The last few years, the office has declined and Dr. Canavan seems to be a different person. I do not recommend this doctor.

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...Read More
