had a procedure which required me to lay for day. went directly to appt after procedure. was told would be taken quickly even tho appt was 1-1/2 hr away. put in exam room immediatel, only could lay on hard exam table. waited more than 2 hrs. to see Dr. even tho all of staff knew this should have been a quick in/out. I had called day before to make sure I could be seen as soon as test ordered by them was completed.

when a doctor in an office tells you you should be happy you only had to wait 45 minutes for the doctor you wanted to see when it is usually over an hour in this office, then there is something terribly wrong with this office and medical system!!!

July 20, 2017

I had very good care.

Dr. Canter is one of the few doctors I have met that has exceptional bedside manner. he listened and he gave me options.

June 29, 2017

my appointment was at 1:45. I got to a room at 2:30 and did see a doctor until after 3. waited another 25 minutes for a order. I ended up going out to ask for it. 2 hours and 15 later I was done. not happy with the time this appointment took.

June 29, 2017

over an hour and a half to be seen.

June 22, 2017

Dr Kanter and his staff are pro's. A well oiled machine!

June 22, 2017

even though the office was very busy and my husband and I were there all day (9:30 am-2:45 pm) when staff stepped into our office they appeared to show genuine concern for my condition & upcoming surgeries and getting me back to my normal routine as quick as possible while using the best surgical options available for me to aid in a complete recovery.

June 22, 2017

Other than the long wait and being in the exam room which I think was too long.
