Dr. CAnos is knowledgeable, compassionate, he listens and he really cares. I would rate him as the best doctor I have ever had, not to demean the other excellent physicians I have seen, but he really is that good. His nurse practitioners and office staff are also wonderful; I have never felt rushed or patronized.
