Dr Kane is the BEST!!!!
Dr. Kane has treated my husbands for 3 1/2 years for Esophageal issues and another “complicated” issue which can be life threatening. He is an amazing surgeon and has saved my husbands life,. We are both so thankful. Dr. Kane is caring, he listens, and puts patient and family at ease when explaining procedures. He is all business at the hospital and you can really tell he is well respected in the medical community. Bedside visits, he was caring and wanted to make sure my husband was well taken care of. He is a great Doctor!

I was very anxious going for a procedure. Dr. Kane's beside manner was great for a patient who anticipated a cancerous outcome. The comment of "no cancer" upon waking from my procedures dispelled any fearful anxiety as I had been experiencing.

Horrible - left one star because nothing less
My father, a very healthy 70 year old, saw Dr Kane for his colonoscopy. My Dad had a burning sensation in his stomach before leaving the facility and the staff sent him home. He almost died the day after. My Dad had a puncture in his intestine. I want to say first that my Dad was scheduled early in the morning for his colonoscopy along with other folks. Dr Kane arrived late. We believe my Dad's procedure was rushed. My Dad was rushed to the ER and laid in ICU and in wound care with an open gut for many months. He was intubated 3 different times. After 2 years of wound care, several ICU stays, hospital stays, rehab, fed by a PIC line/bag and several skin graphs to close his stomach, my Dad is doing good. He however will NEVER EVER be the same. He has to wear a belly band everyday to support his thin fragile skin that hold in his guts. He went from a 38 inch waist before procedure to a 56 inch waist. Dr Kane never checked on him after being notifed. Office extremely rude.
