Dr. Kant performed Rotator Cuff Surgery on my right shoulder in 2015, after 40 years of wear and tear abuse from being a machinist for 40 years. He is an Awesome doctor and I highly recommend him every chance I get. Thanks.

I brought my Mom in to see Dr.Kant and was highly disappointed. We waited for over an hour 1/2 to see him which is very aggravating to begin with. I really liked the PA who was very knowledgeable & welcoming. Then Dr. Kant came in & ignored everything the PA suggested, treated her disrespectful and then treated my Mom the same way. Very unpleasant Man, very abrupt & rude. I have seen several Dr's in my life & have taken my parents to many as well. He would not be one I would ever recommend

Dr Kant is a terrible doctor, saw him twice gave him a benefit of the doubt. All he did was deflect all my issues saying he couldn't help any of them, went as far as to say he's a surgeon and he does surgery and I didn't need surgery. Hes also very rude, and condescending. There office phone system is a joke cant ever get ahold of anyone. I've seen lots of doctors but he is the worst doctor I've ever seen. He just needs to retire he doesn't still have the passion for the job.

My Carpal Tunnel on my right hand had reached the stage that I'd lost almost all strength in it. My hands have always been exceedingly strong, it was to the point that my hand would feel like it was on fire and of course my thumb was completely numb. I have to say that the Dr is a typical Orthopedist that being abrupt, right to the point. I also should say he's very good at what he does, so I can easily dismiss his abrupt demener. Dr Kant is who I will go to next when I need orthopedic

He was friendly and is not surgery crazy. Would do of course if necessary but takes other approaches which is refreshing. Went in for my knee but in the examination found other things wrong which were not associated at all with the knee.

He sucks! He doesn't spend enough time with you and apparently his x-rays aren't backed up by the specialist he asks you to see next! Total wast3 of money. If you call to speak to the Office Administrator she (Sherry) will lie to you and tell you that Dr. Kant (can't - maybe his name is a sign - he cannot help you so don't even try) that he referred you to a different specialist than what you were told to go to in the first place. Then they on purpose hang up on you. This place is a farce.

He wont let you explain things about how you are feeling. I felt I was taking up too much of his time. Would not listen. He kept interrupting me, and/or saying that is not what I asked.
