I came to office about extreme knee pain. It felt as if bones were rubbing against each other and I was no longer able to use steps or walk distance.I had to see Kim first, was told I could only see Dr. for surgery. Kim was very, very informative and I tried injections. My knee was so damaged they didn’t help and I was back two weeks later and was told that I would know when I needed a total knee replacement. Call when I was ready. I have two insurances companies that paid the submitted bills within 3wks of my visits. My acct @Cannon’s office had an approx. credit of $190. I called after45 days. Wendy brought up my acct & said yes we owe you $. I will refund it the same way u pd. After 75 days I called again. Wendy said she didn’t remember the call?? I told her to issue a check.After 4 calls, one office visit and 82 days Wendy issued a credit(I asked for a check)Horrible bookkeeper. If example of practice I’m scared to see the doctor. Wendy “blessed me”I prefer she did her job

Way back in 1980 I was a young 19 y.o. Marine LCpl. involved in a MVA that was disabling and career ending for an active Marine Corps lifer! The trauma sustained then would be a great change then and for the rest of my life. Dr. Neal, Dr. Houkum, Dr. Cannon (Navy) and Dr. Fronek @ Balboa Naval Hospital along with Navy PT & OT therapist, Nurses, and Navy corpsman all worked to save my right arm & leg with their care & expertise. Dr. Cannon if I didn't say it back then, I sincerely Thank You now.
