2017 Best Family Doctor Dr. Roberto Canales (right) with Guadalupe Canales

Dr. Robert Canales

Patients, parents and nurses will tell you that Dr. Roberto Canales lives and breathes his work. He’s a pediatrician, specializing in hematology and oncology, and he’s elevated patient care to an art form in his nearly 40 years of practicing.

Comments from patients and parents include calling him an “angel” and “godsend.” One area mom whose sons are now grown recounted that Dr. Canales once spent an entire evening at her son’s bedside when he was whisked to the intensive care unit after birth.

“I walked in and the nurse told me he’d been there all night,” she said.

Heartfelt care and genuine compassion are the hallmarks of the standards Dr. Canales sets.
