In these days of rushing patients in and out, Dr. Kantrowitz ignores that approach and gives you all the time you need. I am never going to give him up. He is my healthcare professional I am most happy with.

Dr. Kantrowitz changed my life three years ago when he did my spine surgery. Aside from being a skilled surgeon, he is kind and caring. In the exam room he makes you feel like you are his only patient. He takes his time, he explains and he listens. I cannot praise him enough!

In 2014, at the age of 80, I was diagnosed with a meningioma. Dr Kantrowitz performed a craniotomy and within 4 days after the surgery I was out of the hospital. By the end of the following week, I was able to drive from Miami to Jacksonville to visit my daughter-in-law. Without question, Dr. Kantrowitz saved my life. He is patient, comforting and exuberates confidence. He is not only a great skilled surgeon but an extraordinary human being.

He is just the best. I had an emergency, was in horrible pain and although he had a family engagement, he found the time to take care of me. Priceless. Highly recommend.

Dr K is very thorough. My second visit and he had me do a second CT scan to make sure how many procedures in my neck are needed. He does not do any surgery unless really necessary and only the area that is the worst. Very compassionate and caring . He always seems to be there for his patients before and after surgery.

Dr. Kantrowitz saved my husbands life four years ago. We had to relocate 7 hundred miles away and to our dismay, no doctors in our new area would even except my husband as a patient. So we just made that long trip for continuing health care with what we consider, the greatest neurosurgeon in the world! We would also like to include what an amazing office staff. Special thanks to office manager, she's an Angel in disguise.

Dr. Kantrowitz is an extremely brilliant, knowledgeable and professional surgeon. After having fusion and spinal decompression surgery, performed by Dr. K., 18 months ago, I’m impressed with his expertise in the operating room—as my operation was successful. Very thankful that Dr. Kantrowitz was my surgeon. I can walk 5 miles plus everyday without pain! The office staff is very efficient and accommodating. Kudos to Nelly, Evelyn and Kadesha. Great team!

I am extremely grateful to have Dr Kantrowitz as my surgeon. He is brilliant & I hold him in very high esteem. I have recommended him to many people suffering from similar problems to mine. The only huge issue I have is trying to get an appointment . I have been told many times that he cannot see me for months, even when I’ve had to follow up an MRI. There is never a sense of urgency when dealing with the scheduling office & they are very unaccomomdating. It is both frustrating & very stressful.

I received extraordinary attention in my visit. A incredibly intelligent and prepared man, Dr. K reviewed my information, and prepared a multi-level approach depending on the results of future tests (MRIs). Dr. K and his partner share all patient information so that either is able to assist. I feel I am in extremely capable hands!

Listen to my issues and takes time to explain procedures. Courteous staff. Very short time in waiting to see Dr. Kantriwitz. In my case , he has taken more time than customary to show me X-Rays, MRI, etc.
