I was very pleased with Dr. Kanter. He was very professional and explained what tests I would need to see if he could help. I am looking forward to our phone conference to find out if he can help me.

The ladies at the front desk are very nice & show concern. It's always nice to be greeted by someone with a smile. Dr Kanters PA : Angela Petrosky was so very nice & helpful. This was my 6 month post-op visit, I have ongoing back issues. When I told her my pain was coming back she showed concern asked the right questions, reviewed my x-rays with me & my husband. She stepped out & spoke with Dr Kanter & he came in & spoke with us at length. We have a game plan.
