He spends time to listen to me and always finds a solution for my pain. He is a truly amazing physician and person! Lizabeth Johnson R.n.

I came to Dr. Caner in 2011 in what would become a six year battle to regain my health. Dr. Caner, from the beginning with the help of a wonderful staff, truly listened to me and what I was feeling. I needed 10 surgeries and was in excruciating pain, and Dr. Caner made sure that i had the medication that I needed. I also want new patients to know that Dr. Caner will work with you when it is time to stop pain medication. He will be with you every step of the way. Thank you!! Julie Berman

I have severe pain from a bad injection I went thru in my left S-1 area. I was being taken care by a fantastic Dr. For all my arthritic pain and she retired this past year! It was a very sad and nervous situation for me. I was scared and did not know who to see and control my pain levels. Well She gave me Dr. Caner as a great Dr. And I am so , so glad I came to him. He is a Fantastic Dr. And Person. He always has a smile and always makes me feel ok with my situations and that all will work out!

Dr Caner is most definitely one of the best dr's I have experienced after many fails in the past 15yrs, as I have an extremely difficult and complicated medical history. He is extremely thorough, intelligent, open minded, patient and he listens which is important in my opinion. He takes the time to look at the big picture in order to ensure the best care possible and he doesn't give up. Dr Caner gave me my life back and I strongly recommend you put your trust and health needs in his care.

Dr Caner, and his Staff are the best. He has always done everything possible provide the absolute best possible relief for the problems I am forced to live with. His treatments have made it so I can enjoy life. Hes constantly discussing new and different ideas to try. Hes not a doctor content to just let things ride. If you want a Doctor who will actually sit down and talk to you and come up with a plan of action for you and your problem than get over to see him. Hes a rare find.
