I had my first visit with Dr. Cano last week for pain from a car accident. He is full of knowledge, understanding and patience. He took the time to answer all of my questions and explained it all to me. I scheduled upcoming appointments with Dr. Cano and will definitely refer friends and family to him!!

He is a very professional and caring physician. He spends time explaining your current situation and possible treatment options, as well as answering your question in terms that is easily understood. I had my first injection for inflammation and swelling surrounding my right sciatic nerve and I can honestly say that this is the first time in years that I have been totally pain free from any back or leg discomfort. He also makes a follow up phone call himself. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Cano was recommended by several friends that got relief from chronic pain. My own experience was great. I had suffered with a chronic pain that did nothing but get worse. Dr. Cano was able to greatly reduce reduce my discomfort and I still have one treatment to go. This is the man to see if you exhausted all other opportunities and are looking for some relief.

I would recommend Dr. Cano. Dr. Cano and his staff are very good and very polite. They had me in and out of my procedure and I didn't even have any numbing medications before coming in. I didn't feel a thing and walked right out after the procedure.

I was blown away by a recent visit. This man was what I considered one of the best doctors I have come across. I have seen him a few times dating back about 5 years. Then comes my last visit, I was concerned about some pain I was having. I thought it was more than a reasonable about of pain and it really worried me. He continued to trivialize everything I said and was very condescending about the whole thing. I was so thrown I could not continue to articulate myself and left to regain myself.
