Specialties

Dr. Lakshmi P Kannan has the following 3 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • 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.

My daughter had been to multiple DR. for the same problem and NO one was able to give an answer for the condition. Dr. Dr. Kanaan had just come back from vacation late the nite before and was "JET LAGGED" and we were her last appt for the day. She sat down in the chair and gave it some thought and came up with the diagnosis and printed it off for us to read the symptoms and it was on point. It wasn't even her area of expertise. We came for something else. She just went above and beyond. She will go the distance to find the problem and cover ALL the bases!!!

One of the best Doctors I've ever had the pleasure to meet.

Dr Kannan has been treating my sister, Patricia Brown for about 6 weeks for cervical cancer and she has had excellent results! Dr. Kannan's bedside manner is most refreshing in this world of hurriedness. My sister and I are most impressed with her care and concern and methods of treatment. We salute you, Dr. Kannan for your excellent service!
