Ratings for Dr. Elias Kanaan
My dad was admitted to the ER with severe back pain on a Friday. He was discharged on Tuesday with the back pain. He was seen by Dr. Kanaan on Friday at his office. Not much change in his condition and nothing was done other than pain pills. My dad has a history of 2 broken vertebrates which was repaired several years ago. Over looked by Dr. Kanaan or ignored. He was then seen again 1 week later in which he was hospitalized again on Friday for so called CHF this time. This was due to fluid build up from what Dr. Kanaan said was normal from the IV. If he knew this was possible, then why didn't Dr. Kanaan prescribe Lasix? And I am not even a Dr.. The back pain is severe now. Dr. Kanaan wanted to release him to rehab with the back pain and no further investigation into his back pain. We insisted that an orthopedic Dr. see him. He now has an orthopedic Dr. and he is doing an MRI which should have been the first time when our dad was admitted. Poor prognosis on Dr. Kanaan part.
All I have to say is, my husband was admitted into the emergency at 2pm on a Wednesday and he got released on Saturday, He NEVER saw Dr. Kanaan EVER the whole time he was there. He didn't even know he had him as a doctor until about 4 hours before he was discharged. But my husbands chart stated that Dr. Kanaan had seen him. Hmmm???
DR. Kanaan IS AMAZING! HIS STAFF IS THE BEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD! ALL MY APPOINTMENTS WERE GREAT! MY DELIVERY WAS AWESOME! COULD NOT ASK FOR A BETTER DOCTOR! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Success! Overall I would rate this visit : outstanding! I DO TO ALL MY FRIENDS Thank you Dr.Elias Kanaan
What is it about country doctors? Dr. Kannan believes he knows better than my psychiatrist, and on the suggestion of my psychiatrist, I fired him as my primary care doctor. Elias Kanaan, MD knows very little about psychiatry. If one has a sore throat or a broken arm, he's the guy to go to. But any more complex health concerns, one should seek health advice elsewhere, preferably closer into Houston, they seem more capable and better trained than these small town doctors.
