    How was your appointment with Dr. Kanen?

    Jul 07, 2016
    Dr.Todd Kanen saved my life!! Four years ago I was diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma in Situ at the age of 45. If it wasn't for his expertise I would not be here. I not only work for Dr. Kanen but have been scheduling Mastectomies for 25 years. I am very blessed to have Dr. Kanen as my boss and life saver!
