Dr. Cannon and his staff could not have been more professional, and I couldn't have felt more relaxed. From my very first visit, through surgery, and even with my follow-up visit, the staff and doctor were so helpful and reassuring. I always felt confident in their knowledge and advice.

Dr. Cannon saw my son on an emergency basis when he had an injury to his eye. He was very knowledgeable and put me at ease right away. My son is fine and I'm so grateful for the wonderful care he received.
