November 17, 2016

I was not able to walk a year ago this time. Dr. Adam Kanter gave me my life back.

November 10, 2016

Very good experiences.

November 03, 2016

Doctor, PA and staff were excellent, friendly and knowledgeable

October 27, 2016

Service was excellent - however the wait time was a bit ridiculous - I waited in the waiting room for a full hour beyond my appointment time, then was taken to an exam room where we waited an additional 15 minutes for the PA to talk with us, after the PA left, it was another 15 minutes before the Dr. talked with us then another 15-20 minutes total for his nurse to get everything together. Everyone was polite and great but the waiting time is a bit inconsiderate - for an appoint I had scheduled at 11:30, I didn't leave the office until 2:30pm.

October 27, 2016

I was extremely impressed with Dr Kanter and his staff. They were very compassionate and thorough.

October 27, 2016

Dr Kanter and the entire staff are excellent. I have never received better care anywhere.

October 20, 2016

The staff was amazing. I felt very comfortable that the team was able to help me make the best decision possible for my current physical condition.

September 08, 2016

Wait in room to long between nurse, then PA, then doctor, got bored and felt irritable. Husbands comment.

September 08, 2016

I didn't get to spend much time with Dr. Kanter. He already had his mind made up before he came in the room. Our discussion just seemed like a formality.

August 25, 2016

Everything was great except the time it took to be seen. I arrived at 1015 am as requested to be early for paper work. I wasn't seen by the doctor until 115 pm. The staff and receptionist were all great as well as the doctor. Just the wait time was bad.
