Dallas, TX |
Long waits, his staff has missed a critical health point during an ultrasound, confirmed elsewhere. Also Canadas-Zizzias and his staff drink the FDA's cool aid (they are all obese).

I was Dr. Canada's patient for little over 10 years. He has been my family's doctor since then. I can not say better things about his practice, starting for the great state of the art office, kind personnel working there, the short waiting time and , finally, the fantastic feeling to experience for yourself the accuracy of the diagnosis and the rightness on the medication. He will always do a fantastic follow up to ensure you are doing well. I will highly recomend Doctor Rafael Canadas
