Patient Reviews

Dr. Kanishka Monis is an excellent pain management dr, always very thorough and very considerate. Always wants to make sure he has addressed all your pains and goes out of his way to do so. I would NOT go to anyone else, been seeing him for almost 9 years. If he can't help you, he will tell you!
