    My PCP left and referred me to this neurologist. I had a prescription plan and he said he wasnt comfortable contuing my previous rx plan. But he'll give me these alternates instead! They're staff is very confusing. I don't recommend him as an after care doc. I have had an anaplastic astrocytoma 18 yrs ago then this dr. found a leasion. and trios radiology got my mri wrong saying i had no contrast, which i clearly did. So my whole experience with trios was bad, unfortunately. He was a referral.

    After having been under the care of two previous Neurologists in the area, and found their care in both instances to be mediocre I have been both surprised and pleased to be under Dr. Canado's care and am experiencing definite improvement in my condition. It has been under his care when proper diagnosis and therapy was applied. He is both knowledgeable and personable.
    Thank you Rose, we happy Dr. Cancado could help w/your condition and appreciate your business. Thank you for the kind words.

    I've seen Dr. Cancado twice for a EMG/Nerve conduction study on my arms. He is a nice man & I enjoyed talking & laughing w/him during the testing. He was gentle during the test which can be uncomfortable. He listened to all my concerns and diagnosed my problems correctly. I have sent several friends & family members to him & everyone likes him & has been happy w/his office & service

    Dr Cancado has been excellent and successful in treating my epilepsy. He got me on the right meds instead of operating on my brain like a national acclaimed neurologist wanted to. He has successfully diagnosed others when other Drs said it just was "aging". (they missed the Parkinson's) but he picked it up quickly!
