What People Say About Dr. Richard Caner, MD

Unfortunately I have had to see a Pain Management doctor for years. I fell 3 stories and also went through Cancer. With that in mind, Dr. Caner and his staff are by far the MOST HELPFUL, PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY & CARING, people that I have had the PLEASURE of getting to know. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Caner if you are seriously interested in finding solutions to your problem(s). I have had the misfortune, in the past, of going to clinics that just wanted to give you a prescription and send you on your way! That is NOT a SOLUTION! It is just a bandage at best! AGAIN if you are TRULY interested in the most recent techniques to help your issue DR. CANER is the doctor you NEED to see!! I have done better with him and am currently able to do more now than I have in a decade!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this place & staff!!

I have been seeing Dr. Caner for appox. 10 years. I like Dr. Caner's philosophy. He is not the type of Doctor to line up surgeries just to make a buck. He utilizes noninvasive methods first. He cares about his patients as evidenced that most of his patients remain long term from what I see. He is careful to make sure treatments will work for you personally. He doesn't have one hand on the door as you are asking questions. He is knowledgeable about new treatments in the field. I recommend him and his team highly. They are a great group of professionals. If you have difficulty navigating your insurance, especially HMO's, Karen from his team is a miracle worker.

The best! Dr Caner has helped me for years with various pain issues. Hes always on top of the latest treatments and has always been on my side. He comes into the room and sits down casually to chat with you about whats going on. His assistants are very kind. They take notes to speed things along so Dr Caner can make the best decisions for the problem. He acts as a friend and doesn't just shuffle people through the office. A rare Dr who really cares and I say from my heart Thank you Dr Caner

Dr Caner saved me from undergoing a very risky 3rd back surgery. Instead, he offered a non invasive radio frequency procedure for my herniated disk and it fixed what an orthopedic and neurosurgeon failed to with 2 prior surgeries. He’s well versed in his field and actually LISTENS to everything I say. His staff is courteous and helpful, I never feel like a number. I wished he could be my doctor for all my medical care.
