Biography
Dr. Charles Cannan believes his most important role as a physician is to provide educated and compassionate care to all of his patients. “I will care for each patient as best I can, by today’s standards, and apply this to each person as an individual,” he says.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

He flipped up my shirt and pulled my compassion sox down. I think I should have been asked to do that or explained to why it was necessary. He checked my legs for swelling and attached an EKG sticker on my chest.
