I think Dr. Kanis is one of the best doctors I've ever seen him, and his nurse. We're both very, very good with me. I went there because I needed some advice on some health issues I had. I just appreciate him so much.

I think Dr. John Kanis is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. I'm thrilled to have him as my doctor. He always digs and finds out what he needs to. If I have a question or if he has a question, he tells me directly what's going on. His nurses, no mater who he brings in have always been the best towards me and for what I need. You need to hang on to him, because I will follow him wherever he goes. Thank you.

I'm very grateful to have Dr. Kanis as my longtime Dr. He knows my medical history well. He recommends proper tests and references options for me. Dr Kanis listens to what I'm saying and I don't feel rushed at all. Dr Kanis is a wonderful Doctor.

I would really like you to figure out how to get Dr. John into the Pellack Clinic, instead of us having to drive all the way through the tunnel to see him. Thank you.
