Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I would never start allergy shots with him
Dr. Kanter has limited knowledge about allergies other than injections. ALL of his solutions for treatment and prevention come from a pharmaceutical prescription. He knows nothing about the value of proper supplements and their benefits. And, in fact, he actually mocks their use if the subject is brought up in his presence. Why do I still go to him after 20 years? Because it'd take me 5 years to get up to my level of shots with another doctor. So, I get my allergy shots monthly and go in once a year and just nod when he tells me what prescriptions to take. I leave it up to my internist, who is an integrated doctor, to give me the proper advice to treat my allergies.

Just called to make my son an appt. Jessica asked what type of insurance, I told her and she said they can't schedule him til Nov. I asked if he had a different insurance if he could get in sooner, she said yes. We're in April. I told her I want to speak to someone else. I was on hold for quite a while. She wouldn't even give me her name at first. HORRIBLE FIRST IMPRESSION!
