Austin, TX |
I have been very pleased with Dr. Canby. He is very personable and answered my questions where I could understand the ablation procedure that I had done. I am very pleased that I chose to have this procedure done.

Dr. Canby answered my questions and helped me to understand my condition and what to expect after I had an ablation performed. He also made recommendations on how I could improve my overall cardiovascular health, by mentioning several pro-active lifestyle changes.

Dr. Canby has been a Godsend to me. He is courteous, friendly and proficient at what he does. When I was diagnosed with A flutter, Dr. Canby and his office staff set up an appointment for an Ablation in a matter of hours and successfully completed the procedure sending me on my way to enjoy a pre=planned trip to Europe without any reservations. The post procedure appointments I have had with him have been very efficient, thorough and pleasant. Thank you Dr. Canby.
