Dr. Kanaan is not only exceptional in his skill, but he is incredibly kind and caring. He went above and beyond to help me. Other doctors could learn about compassion from him! I can't recommend him highly enough.

Satisfied patient

In 2011 I had been in pain for 10 years & blown off by other doctors. He believed me and his great care gave me the ability to lead a very active life again. I have never had before or since a surgeon that really cares for the patient in this country like he does. Sonoma county misses him.

Class A Doctor in Napa, CA

Words cannot describe how well Dr. Kanaan took care of me. I was seriously ill and he was so gracious and kind during my treatment. He has a way of calming a patient down when they are so nervous and scared. My lungs collapsed twice and I was frantic. Both times Dr. Kanaan took excellent care of me and eased my fears. He is an A-One doctor and is the best doctor I have ever had. He treats you with such kindness and explains thing in a way that you can understand. I have met a few of his other patients and they all felt the same as I. We have even talked about starting a Dr. Kanaan "Fan Club". Seriously I hope that he never leaves Napa. His nurse "Heide" is also wonderful person and deals well with the patients. They are the best team ever and Napa is sure lucky to have them here.
