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.

I am very impressed with Dr. John he has been my doctor since I was 12 years old. He goes above and beyond, and I'm very sad that he will be leaving and the family practice, and just doing wound care from here on out. I wish him the best but I am sad for myself.
