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.

Dr. Kane was great. He sat down and walked me through my upcoming shoulder surgery. Dr. Kane was relaxed, took time to explain, and listened to and answered all my questions.

Dr. Norman Kane just did surgery today on both my knees. He is amazing and I am thrilled that I chose him as my surgeon. He thoroughly explained what was needed during the consult a week before. Then today was a breeze. His knowledge and expertise was exceptional. I highly recommend Dr. Kane and his staff. Five star in every aspect, he is the only Ortho surgeon I will ever use. Thank you so much, Dr. Kane, you are the absolute best !!!

Dr. Kane didn’t bother to examine me during my visit, didn’t spend any time whatsoever reviewing the MRI -- other than taking a few-second glimpse at the radiologist’s report -- noticing the revenue opportunity -- and going straight to that. As if my own experiences weren’t sufficient, the local medical community have done everything in their power to convince me that this Dr cannot be trusted. Summary: You would be wise to avoid this surgeon, who has lost all curiosity and pride in his work, and with little to no desire to pay attention or act on the best interest of patients. I can’t help but wonder if others at Synergy are aware and/or complacent. On another sad note, he also thought it was OK to deride an employee in front of me. A simple google search reveals that many others have the same experience – specifically his lack of care, rushing to surgery/monetize and even deriding employees publicly. He should do himself and everyone else a favor and retire.

Dr Kane did total hip replacement surgery on my left and right hip joints and I am now no longer in pain. He was caring throughout both of my surgeries and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Kane replaced my knee. At the time he agreed to do so my knee was inflamed, red, extremely sore and hot to the touch. My white cell count was 10 times normal. These are all indications of infection. Yet he did not do the standard "c reactive protein" test which would have confirmed the infection. Instead he went ahead with the surgery, my knee was infected, and I had to have two more complete knee replacements. Run, don't walk, away from this guy.

Pleasant Dr. but seems to be in a hurry to get out. Seemed more like a restaurant business where you want to turnover customers ;-) Recommended surgery as the only option after a partial ACL tear. He didn't evaluate my knee movements. Second opinion from Scripps Encinitas said physiotherapy would work since I had 100% knee movement and no pain. It would be good to give patients an option and not just recommend surgery because it will bring in more revenue.

Horrible patient care! Spends 5 min MAX EACH VISIT with patient. Leaves exam room quickly before you can ask questions. Office staff : phones not answered, faxes from insurance companies go unaddressed, so coverage is denied due to non responses from DrKane and Staff. HORRIBLE CARE! Find a Dr who gives darn cuz this Dr and Staff DO NOT!
