Grateful Beyond Words

Dear Dr. McCann,


I wanted to thank you for seeing me on February 28th.  I very much appreciated you taking the time to look at my condition even though this was not something you do, offer advice and arrange a referral for me.

When I saw Dr. Zavodni, he said that you had phoned him on his cell phone on his way home to discuss my case.  It is so rare these days for a doctor to take the time to really listen, and go beyond the 15 minute visit and show genuine concern for the patient.  I also wanted to thank Dr. Pargament for his support and concern.  I am grateful beyond words.

Dr. Zavodni has been amazing!  I feel so fortunate to be in his care.  I experienced considerable relief in just a short time, after having dealt with this for 5 weeks.

Again, thank you so much for your compassion and understanding.

John McCann, MD, PhD

Specialty: Eyelid and Facial Plastic Surgery

Where did you grow up?  Waterloo, Iowa

As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?  I liked using knowledge to solve problems and thought mostly of becoming a doctor or a scientist

Where did you go to medical school? University of Iowa

How/why did you choose your specialty?  I did my initial training as an Ophthalmologist because I liked micro surgery and was impressed with the ability of eye surgeons to improve vision.  I sub-specialized in Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery because it allowed me to both help people see better and look better, plastic surgery poses a wider variety of problems to solve, and the unique nature of many of these problems requires creativity to address.

Tell us about your family:  I have 4 sisters who are all successful teachers and a younger brother who is a successful businessman.  I did not get married until I was almost 40 years old as I was waiting to meet the perfect woman.  That woman is Rachel and we have been together for about 20 years now.  We do not have children but have a couple of spoiled English bull dogs who believe they are are children

What are you reading right now?  I like to read spy thrillers and am currently reading all of Ben Coes novels.

What do you do in the morning?  I review the charts and photographs of the people who I will either operate on that day or see in clinic.  It forces me to critically reassess each patient’s treatment plan, how the course of treatment is progressing, and this time gives me a chance to consider what is working well and which treatment plans may need to be tweaked.

How do you like to spend your free time?  In the summer I love mountain biking, fly fishing, and white water rafting.  In the winter I snow ski and do computer programming which I find relaxing.

What is your favorite thing about being a physician?  We all like to do what we are good at and my strength has always been problem solving.  Patients always come to a doctor with a problem, so practicing medicine places 40 new problems in from of me each week which I have the privilege to get to solve.  In the process of solving the problems I get to help my patients see and look better, and that is very rewarding.


Impressed with everyone

“I was impressed with everyone that I met. Receptionist, technician, and both doctors. Dr McCann, I could tell was tops in his field, he explained my situation so I could understand all of my options. Valerie was very helpful when it came to discussing my options for surgery dates and the procedures that I would be going through. Dr McCann was very concern when it came to my medical history and what steps would be taken to make sure I understood the cautions that would be taken.”  – JS

First time visiting Dr. McCann’s office and I couldn’t be happier

“First time visiting Dr. McCann’s office and I couldn’t be happier.  From the time I checked in to the time I was finished, I was treated very well.  Everyone was friendly and told me what was happening all along the way.  When I got to meet Dr. McCann, I was impressed how friendly and approachable he was.  During the treatment, I didn’t feel as though he was rushed or busy at all.  He took his time, explained the procedure, and made sure I was comfortable with what was about to happen.  I would recommend his practice to anyone.” -TK

Couldn’t have asked for better treatment

“Your office worked me in and were very thorough and informative. I was very pleased with Dr. McCann and couldn’t have asked for better treatment! He took the time to explain everything to both me and my friends. He was very warm and gracious. Will definitely be returning…” –SF

Skin Cancer: Prevention and Reconstruction By: John D. McCann MD PhD

Most skin cancer occurs on the face so one of the important areas of emphasis at the Center for Facial Appearances in skin cancer reconstruction.  We coordinate care with Mohs surgeons who are experts in removing skin cancer while we are experts in reconstruction after removal.


Skin cancer is best prevented so remember: sun screen, hats, and sunglasses.  Most people receive 80% of their lifetime exposure to sun before the age of 20 and this early exposure to sun can later cause skin cancer.  It is particularly important for parents and grandparents to protect their children’s skin.
