Professional Statement
Christopher Cannon, M.D., has long been motivated by a fascination for the heart and a passion for disease prevention. Early in his career, these interests led him to become a cardiovascular disease researcher, but his desire to help people prompted a career shift to medicine. As an interventional cardiologist, he feels most gratified helping his complex, critically ill patients recover from heart attacks and regain their health through lifestyle changes. Dr. Cannon believes that his most important role is to help prevent cardiovascular disease so that people may live their fullest, healthiest lives. “I encourage my patients to participate actively in their health care,” he says. Dr. Cannon especially encourages his patients and their families to embrace healthy living. “We can dramatically improve our health with lifestyle improvements in diet and exercise,” he says. Born in Southern California, Dr. Cannon moved with his family at age 10 to North Carolina, where he went on to pursue higher education. He received his medical degree from Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in Greenville, where he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. Dr. Cannon went on to complete his residency at University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver and returned to North Carolina for his fellowship in cardiology and interventional cardiology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Dr. Cannon and his wife enjoy spending time with their children and friends, as well as outdoor activities such as camping and hiking. He is an active volunteer with the Gospel Rescue Mission.

I have experienced health care in the State of WA, and it was very good and well organized. Provident Medford is equal to that experience.

I previously worked as a consultant for medical office admin and Dr. Cannon is definitely one of the top 5 providers I have had the pleasure to meet and work with. He is attentive, listens to all my questions and even reviewed with me current health issues showing on my records above and beyond those my appointment was for. He didn't miss anything and is very kind. He is an amazing physician.
