He was very patient in explaining the procedure to me. He has excellent bedside manner and visited me daily during my stay. Great personality.

He was patient in explaining the procedure and answered all my questions. Excellent bedside manners especially for a surgeon!
in Lakeland, FL |
This young doctor did a coiling and stenting of my brain anureysm while at USF in Tampa Florida. I found him to be caring and throughly educated in his field. I felt truly blessed that our paths crossed at a very scary time in my life.
Dr Kan saved my wife's life. He and his staff here at TGH (Tampa General Hospital) did a unbelievable job. We miss him each time we have to go visit our new Dr at USF.
