I got an appointment and waited for two months to see Dr. Canter for consultation. But, the day before the appointment, they informed me I was scheduled to see a physian assistant. Their decision was rude and unprofessional. So I cancelled my appointment.

I would not recommend this practice at all. Staff made me feel uncomfortable during my exam (weird and staring). Staff apparently misrepresented my procedure to my health care company. Would not return my calls to correct the documentation. Also, billed the wrong insurance company.

I've had a history of urogynecology issues, was trying to do a follow-up on kidney stone and other issues and was declined from scheduling an appt. I guess just a very narrow specialty of issues Dr. Canter sees.

Dr Canter is a very friendly, compassionate, highly skilled urogynecologist. She did " the works" for me with hysterectomy and related repairs in 2008. She used a high quality mesh, not the mesh that caused problems for some women. I highly recommend her and my mother is going to see her too.

Dr. Canter is incredibly knowledgeable and efficient. Moreover she is one of the kindest and most considerate physicians I've ever encountered. She sits with her patients for as long as it takes, is thorough to discuss and answer all questions and is very comforting. I wish she was my primary care, however thanks to her comprehensive care I shouldn't need her clinical services in the future.

Dr. Canter is extremely knowledgeable and a talented diagnostician. She always has a treatment plan that she explains well. She is seeing my elderly mother and she understands, respects and considers the challenges that older patients have. She also has a beautiful and compassionate bedside manner, she really cares.
