It was a good experience

Dr Kanter took the time that was needed with out rushing me to answer all of my questions and told me everything that he would be doing regarding my upcoming surgery. He was engaging, professional and had a very nice bedside manor. I have complete confidence in him.

I had to wait several hours beyond my appointment time to be seen and had less than five minutes with my doctor though his staff spent time with me and answered my questions.
