My care and constant reinforcement of concerns after and including my operation have been exceptional. They were met with compassion and positive advise. Dr. Kanter and nurses are a great team. Big thanks to all !

The one complaint that I have regarding this visit was that my appointment was one hour behind my scheduled appointment time. That was a substantial inconvenience for me as I was on my way to work from the visit.

He and his staff,are by far the best I have ever experienced! Hand down!

I am so glad my sister recommended UPMC for my health care needs. I feel I was extremely fortunate to have Dr. Kanter do my surgery. When I first had symptoms of not being able to walk I was so afraid and confused, I could not think and did not know what to do. 6 months later i am truly blessed. Thank You.

For the first time in 9 months I felt like someone (Dr. Kantor) was actually listening to me. He was very concerned about my situation and went beyond the normal look at my records and give his opinion. He examined me which no other doctor really did over the last nine months. So I would definately recommend him to anyone who has a back, neck problem.

Dr. Kanter is an excellent surgeon. I already referred a friend because she wasn't happy with her current Physician/Surgeon, and she is scheduled for surgery with Dr. Kanter.

This provider is usually late, so waiting time can be a nuisance.
