It would not be fair to respond to this survey. Nothing to do with Dr. Canavan It was the length of time it took for her to be able to do my exam. My initial visit was in March and just the other day was aloud to do her job. Do to reasons beyond her control is my understanding. So as far as her and the facility. Top notch. You would have to check with her and the facility to find out why it took 6 months . That is the only part I am unhappy with.

Reviewed on Sep 13, 2023

For a remote appointment, it went very smooth. My wife had questions that -Dr. Canavan addressed, and we were satisfied with the answer that the Dr. Made simple and easy to understand. The Dr. Helped us to know what to look for in the future, and what to expect with my treatment.
