Patient Reviews
May 14, 2023
I have known Dr. McCanless since 2012 when he treated me for DCIS. The care and treatment given from 2012-2017 was excellent. He apparently did something right because I have been cancer free for 11 years since 2017. Now that I have a new cancer at 2023, I have once again sought his expertise hoping that I will be cancer free permanently!
