Specialties

Dr. Arvo Kanna has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

One Star

Dr.Kanna is a pretty good doctor if you don't mind waiting 1½-2 hours past your appointment time to see him. They say it is because he takes his time and is very thorough but he should schedule his patients accordingly and respect the fact that their time is important to them too. The office staff at his office are nothing but rude! They don't mind announcing your business in front of people and embarrassing you, I feel that they could use some common courtesy and it would be nice if they would smile occasionally instead of always seeming like they are in a bad mood and bring their outside problems to work.

MS and Chronic back pain syndrome

Dr. Kanna,He is very intelligent and listens and really take time to do all the test he can in his office. He took me on as a patient after another hospital put me on high dose steroids and didn't taper me off and then I went into an adrenal insuffiency. I have a complicated history and he really had tried his best to help me and I can't ask for anymore.

Expected more

Though the nurses at the practice are nice, the front desk staff is not. Dr. Kanna was not familiar with my chart and asked many of the same questions I provided in my paperwork, my meeting with the nurse, and in our previous visit. Overall, I do not feel at all like Dr. Kanna respects me as a patient let alone as a person. I am in the process of finding a new neurologist. I would NOT recommend Dr. Kanna to anyone seeking individualized/personalized care.

Great Listener

We are very impressed with Dr Kanna. My husband, after having a mini stroke, had alot of anxiety. Dr Kanna answered questions, examined and tested. He didn't stop there, he also listened and advised. He followed up with a phone call at home. Dr Kanna is not only a wonderful doctor he is a friend who not only cares that we live but that we heal thrive.
