Ratings for Dr. Paul Cano
If you're looking for a doctor to shrug everything off, Dr. Cano is the guy for you. I was his patient for over 26 years and I've never met a doctor that seemed more clueless than him. When I tried to talk to him about my health concerns, his response was "it's probably fine". At one appointment, a female doctor was filling in for him and, when I brought it up with her, she was alarmed that he had been so laisez-faire about the whole thing. On another occasion, I called ahead to say that I had the flu. My warning was ignored and, when I got there and they realized that I wasn't kidding, Dr. Cano freaked out and wouldn't even enter the room. He's supposed to be a healthcare professional and there was nothing professional about his behaviour. He is dismissive, rude, and condescending - once outright telling me that he didn't "have time for this". I would never recommend him to anyone and am so glad I've found a new, competent doctor.
If there was a lower rating, I would do it. With his "wait and see if it gets better" approach, it took over 7 years to get the proper treatment for a serious shoulder issue to be fixed. Despite a known past addiction to opiods, he constantly prescribes pain killers and shares false information on alternative medicine to discredit it. Declined to take my wife as a patient despite her not having a doctor and being 6 months pregnant. Has been my doctor for 25 years and I couldn't be more happy to leave him behind. Do yourself a favour; do the same.
I had high blood pressure for years that he refused to diagnose, blamed everything on stress. If I was sick he said it was my asthma. I came back a bunch of times with a bad cough that turned out to be bronchitis because he said it was asthma. He is easy to talk to and listens well but I find that instead of researching or investigating he jumps to conclusions. Years ago he diagnosed me with a chemical imbalance and put me on medication, which didn't work. He just kept changing it. I did not have an imbalance, add it turns out, it was environmental depression. He admitted he knew nothing about depression at the time but had no problem diagnosing me with a chemical imbalance and putting me on medication that made me feel way worse. Glad I had the insight to take myself off medication and make changes in my life instead.
Dr. Cano has been our family doctor for just over 21 years now. I have always found him to be punctual and friendly and a great listener. He is very good about making specialist appointments when needed and always follows up with a phone call to give results or check on how you are doing. I have always found him to be a caring doctor who is genuinely concerned about my health and that of my family. I would not hesitate to recommend him!
Worst doctor ever! The staff are always rude and miserable whenever you go in. You wait in the waiting room for hours(not an exagereation at all!!) then when you do get called in, he rushes you out. He frequently leaves the room to make or take phone calls, etc. while in the middle of my appointments! Ice and Advil are his recommendations for everything. The stupiest thing is that if you call for an appointment later on in the week, they tell you to call back that day at 9.
He is one of the worst doctors I have ever had! Ice and Advil is his advice for everything! The staff are just plain awful and rude. The whole office atmosphere just sucks. The dumest thing is that if you call to make an appointment for later on down the road, they tell you to call back on that day and they will see if they have appoinments available. Just writing this review makes me sooo mad! I hate the office so much!!!
Maybe fine for regular sicknesses but lousey when the first analysis was proven wrong by a few tests. He did not refer me unless I recommended who I wanted to see. His inept diagnostic ability & lack of research made me very sick & put on a lot of weight. Argued with my past doctors' correct diagnosis & would not research for me. Would not supply the medicine that worked before. Did not want to learn about post-polio problems. I left him 3 years ago & with other medical people's help, I have improved a lot. I do not recommend him at all.
