I give Dr Kanter and his staff my highest recommendation. Very good communication and always respond the same day with questions and concerns.

provider has always been great

September 07, 2017

I found the staff very cordial and friendly. They were more than willing to listen to my complaints and as to why I had chosen Dr. Kanter. I found them to be quite informed in their professions with a willingness to be as helpful and attentive as they could be to my needs. Thank You for a great first visit.

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!!!

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.
