First time I went to see him he diagnosed me with an immune an allergy issue. Gave me tons of samples and started allergy shots which I had anaphylactic reactions to. I stopped the shots and tried alternative treatment modifying my diet for a few years with tremendous success. Returned when I moved back to the area for allergy eye symptoms. He misdiagnosed without even listening to my symptoms dry eye and gave me the wrong medication. He also made fun of my weight and he and his nurse stood right outside my open door in the exam room trying to guess how much I weighed. He wanted to give me an allergy test and I told him I took medication that was an antihistamine so it would impact the test. I refused the allergy test. Told him no. He did one anyway telling me I was being a toddler. I left immediate after and have never been so rudely treated in my life by a doctor or nurse. Horrible man!!

He’s ok! I went in for a rash that looked like hives, I explained my history and provided him with all the information that I could. Now my issue is, he only observed the rash that he could see, assuming it all was the same. However, that wasn’t the case and he gave me a diagnosis without examining all areas based on his assumption. When he was getting ready to leave the room I made a statement about how the rash is different in another areas and bam it was a possibility of a dual diagnosis.

My first visit was great. He was able to diagnose and treat an immune system problem I'd been having for years. At my most recent visit, he was rushed and would not listen to me. He gave me tons of different pharmaceutical samples to try, and showed no concern for my unrelated symptoms. Made no effort whatsoever.

Dr. Kanarek is a life saver! I spent 2+ years visiting many doctors trying to figure out and find relief for severe itching, redness and cracking! I was beyond miserable! All the other doctors were treating me with topical creams, salves etc. He knew immediately it was internal and caused from inflammation! He prescribed meds and within 2 weeks I felt like a new person! He is knowledgeable, caring and compassionate! I will be forever grateful for his expertise and his genuine concern!

Dr. Kanarek ended my years living with a misdiagnosed and untreated immune deficiency. Life returned to normal under his care. He saw me without a referral and always can see me on a week's notice. He diagnosed me, but he is also handling my continuing care. I drive 3 hours to see him and will continue to do so, even though there's doctor's in my area who can treat my condition. After so many years of wrong answers, he's the one I can trust.

I've gone to Dr. Kanarek for the last 18 years. He always makes you feel welcome and takes the time to make sure you understand what he is explaining. I would recommend him to anyone needing an allergist! His staff is also excellent.
