Greg & Linda S.

Dear Dr. Kanaan,

It is hard for us to put into words our deepest thanks and appreciation for your excellence of care for Linda in her recent diagnosis and lobectomy to remove a cancerous tumor in her right lung. Your use of technology, robotics surgery, information on your website, and social media made it extremely easy for us to learn about her condition and treatment. In addition your communication either by phone, text, email, and the very warm care we received from your staff, made us feel you were always there for us! From our initial consultation through surgery and post-surgery care, your compassion and complete control of every detail, test, appointment, and follow up in the hospital was always so personal, immediate, professional and responsive, reducing our anxieties to a very low level. Thank you, we are forever grateful for your expertise, and saving Linda’s life.

Warmest regards,

Greg & Linda S.

Terry said it so well. This has been so much easier a time than I expected. The birthday cake—that was truly the icing. What might have been a bad time has been upbeat, and I'm feeling better day by day.
