I was recommended to Westover Hills Orthopaedics by a co-worker. The office staff, medical staff and Dr. Kanz were fantastic. The surgery was successful and my pain is gone. I was back at work in one month. I will certainly recommend Dr. Jeffrey Dean and Dr. Brian Kanz to all of my family, friends and co-workers. Thank You for helping me improve my quality of life.

Dr Kanz is awesome. He gave me a knee replacement and did a fantastic job. He I so caring and gives you all the time you need. However, he needs a new receptionist girl. The one he has is rude non caring and could care less about you or any pain that you may be having. Get rid of her Dr and you will have a perfect practice. If you were not such a great dr. I would go to someone else. I put up with her only because of you.

The Doctor is fine. The support staff a joke. Miscommunication and down right lies. Have voicemail proving their lying. Jason blame Surgery Center on my surgery cancellation when it was doctor office who cancelled my surgery over greed. Please sue me over this.

Dr Kanz is very personable, great bedside manners. He explained everything to me prior to hip surgery. It has been 2 weeks since surgery and I am feeling great. I would recommend Dr Kanz he will offer options to avoid surgery.
