Dr. Caner is a very good doctor. After suffering in very bad pain for a long time, my orthopedic surgeon referred me to see Dr. Caner. He is professional, compassionate and truly cares about his patients. His office staff is also wonderful as they are all kind and helpful. I am very grateful for the help I have received from Dr. Caner.

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.

Just to clarify my previous review of Dr. Caner. My spelling and punctuation were sloppy. The word paid should have been pain. After all, he is the best that I have seen in this specialty. I also left a few question marks that should have been exclamation points. My review is 100% positive. I could not find out how to modify my previous review.

I’ve battled with many physical pain issues for many years, and have seen several doctors for it. I have never been more happier and satisfied since I’ve been a patient of Dr. Caner. He takes time to listen and work with you to help alleviate your pain, and explains each procedure as thorough as possible. He has a wonderful personality, understands and respects your thoughts, and will do his best to meet your expectations.

Caner injected me with a staph bacteria. I went to the hospital. An MRI & scan showed a bubble by my spine where he injected me. I was in horrible pain. He released me 4 days later. Gave me a script for more pain pills. Told me the problem was constipation. 3 days later I went back to the hospital. I was put in ICU, Temp 104, Out of my mind, Horrendous pain and in sepsis. I almost died. I was in the hosp for 3 1/2 wks, Rehab 3 1/2 wks. It took a yr. to recuperate. He has never called me.

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.
