Dr. Canning and his team were exceptional! I felt like his ‘only’ patient, and am extremely pleased with all aspects of my pre, during, and post surgical care. I highly recommend Dr. Canning as a surgeon! My pre-op nurse Martha was a ‘rock star’, plain and simple! Martha was truly fantastic to me!

"Dr. Canning was excellent. It was a somewhat complicated surgery and he handled it perfectly. He is a wonderful doctor. Dr. McEnaney who came to see me several times was also great. Friendly, caring, talented doctors."

 "Dr. Canning is my new hero. Everyone was so caring and professional. The nurse (Kristen) held my hand the whole way to the OR until I went in. I was so frightened and I had no one there with me.”  The patient was very thankful for the great care she received!

Dr. Canning…was my surgeon, obviously I would like to thank him for the great job he did. I wish I remembered everybody's name but Sarah, definitely Sarah, but the rest is kind of foggy, anyway, thank you very much.

Dr. Canning... is a very kind and patient surgeon. I spent 5 hours on the operating table with this guy and never even saw him…Too bad.  My thanks to all who aided in my recovery. Great job Milford!

Dr. Canning, and the nurses that were in the… outpatient recovery room, they did a wonderful job with me. I had a little… bit of a problem at the end of the surgery… and I would like to stress, how competent and how… well the… nursing staff and the medical staff took care of me.

"I would like to say that all nurses and CNAs on the 2nd floor, all three shifts, were good and very nice. Dr. Canning and his staff were very good. I gave this hospital a  #1."
