No complaints. Dr. Kanter's office called me a few weeks ago asking me to come in for a 1 year follow-up. Dr. Kanter has been very friendly when I talked with him and his staff goes out of their way to help me with questions or concerns. They have been great.

Dr. Kantor is prompt, thorough and professional. When it became clear that I would need back surgery, my wife and I asked around the medical community for recommendations; Dr. Kantors' name was overwhelmingly the response. I feel the recommendations were warranted and Dr. Kantor is worth his reputation.

Angela, the PA, was very warm and friendly and did a good job of explaining MRI results. She listened well and addressed our concerns. Dr Kanter was also warm and friendly. He apologized twice for the long wait (2 hours). After we talked with him, we felt the wait was worth it, although it would have been nice to be seen more promptly. He presented 3 options for courses of action and put the ball in our court. I feel he presented each option with pros and cons and gave his opinion but did not force anything on us.
