What People Say About Dr. J Kantarian, MD
Reply
Dr. Kanterian and his team saved my Mother's life with emergency surgery. I am and always will be forever grateful to them. My Mom, Carlotta, became very ill very quickly, in an instant was diagnosed with Diverticulitis and became deathly ill from being severly Septic. About a gallon worth of matter contaminated her insides was burning her and her organs. I don't know what more anyone can ask for than what he did. He saved her life. He will always be the one I will never forget.
