What People Say About Dr. Malek Kanama, MD

When I found out that I have to have surgery I became very concerned and scared about it. Even on my first visit to the surgeon I was very nervous. I never in a hospital before except to visit other people. It was not until I met Dr Malex Kanama and his staff that I felt much comfortable. As Dr Kanama was talking and clearly explaining everything to me then my comfort level was better and and better. Dr Kanama thank you for your professionalism and caring way in taking care of me.
