I was under the care of Dr. Canan Avinduk's care for 2.5 yrs. Bloviated by her own self-arrogance, Avunduk boasted being one of the top gastroenterologists in the country, specializing in HCV viral treatment. " Interferon must be injected into the meat of your muscle she adamantly stated after being repeatedly asked on more than several occasions. In fact, is a subcutaneous injection Dr. not intramuscular. I gave myself 2 1/2 years of injections in the wrong place. It was no wonder my treatment had failed. I also had suffered a right frontal stroke under her care, calling and pleading for her help, she was too busy to even return my calls. After finally speaking with her weeks later, she said I had only a year or so to live. What a mercilessly poor excuse for a human being. This is a Dr. who is not dependable, and cannot be trusted. She never even had me immunized for Hep A or B prior to my treatment which is standard operational procedure. Oh!! I forgot, she was having her facelift that week.
That was in March of 2008. It is now Feb of 2012, and since I was never once symptomatic, I am again on the new HCV treatment under the care of a much more able and competent physician. My response has been excellent; it helps receiving proper instruction, something that Avunduk never afforded me. I may be cured this time and even without this new treatment, my liver biopsy indicated minimal to no liver damage from my viral load and it would have been at least 10 more years before I ever became close to symptomatic. Telling her patient who had just suffered a stroke that he was going to die a horrible death in a year or so is her expression of true professionalism.
Beware of Dr. Canan Avunduk, as she proved beyond any reasonable doubt, to be incompetent, unreliable, inhumane, immoral, and seriously lacking in any professional mannerisms. Go back to school Dr. as your incompetence clearly speaks for itself.

Canan or Caanan Avunduk is neglectful and dangerous. She is almost exactly like the Nazi Dr.s who
experimented on concentration camp victims. I suffered a stroke as a result of her abusive treatment. When I confronted her with the issue, she place a PERJURED restraining order on me even though there was no threat or indication of threat involved. This individual believes herself to be above reproach. Her bloated ego makes her feel that she has the God given right to use her patients like lab rats. This physician ruined my life and anything that she writes and knows was acquired through the blood and deaths of her lab experiment patients. She is a liar and if she is confronted with her past, she becomes vindictive and malicious.
This Dr. is EXTREMELY HIGH RISK and CAN NOT BE TRUSTED. She is NOT DEPENDABLE and has a very SADISTIC NATURE. Regardless of what her literature may contain, it was acquired unethically and violates her oath as a DR. to CAUSE NO HARM.
CAANAN AVUNDUK or CANAN AVUNDUK is evasive and elusive. This one needs to be institutionalized and not be practicing medicine.
You are better off going to a veterinarian.
Thank you... Ron P
