All of your staff are doing a good job and the PA and Doctor Kanter are very good at what they do.

last visit was good, previous two, doctor seemed to be in a hurry

Dr. Kanter answered and explained all questions I had clearly and concisely. He reviewed my x-rays and MRI results with me. He gave me different options and his opinion when I asked for it. Great visit.

I spent most of my time with my doctor's PA. he reviewed my MRI with my husband and I. he was very attentive and explained everything very well. my husband and I were very impressed.My physician visited me, as well. He acknowledged and concurred with the PA. Administer his orders for me and sent his nurse in to talk with my husband and I. We are very impressed with the service that I receive at UPMC that we continue to travel from the state of Virginia to receive this assiduous service! Thank you.

The doctor and his staff did an excellent job of addressing my pain level to get me some relief while awaiting much needed surgery. They also got me into the office as soon as possible and addressed all my issues. I am so thankful for their help.

The intake people for the x-ray dept and Dr. Kanters were excellent. The doctor I saw was not Dr. Kanter himself. After my initial brief meeting with Dr. Kanter and seeing him briefly before my major back surgery I never saw Dr. Kanter again. I was told by my daughter that he did come to the recovery room a few times. but
