I am a type 1 diabetic and have diabetic retinopathy. After moving from NYC to NJ, I needed a new retina specialist and went to Kanter after seeing all of the positive reviews online. I am young and look healthy; he treated me as though I was crazy for being there even though I explained my history. He dilated my eyes and said they "looked fine" without performing an angiogram. I went back for a check-up and finally decided I needed a 2nd opinion. My new dr recognized swelling and treated it.
