Dr Kaner is an amazing doctor, having suffered with asthma since my late teens, he is the one doctor who was able to control my asthma. He spent a lot of time answering all my questions, making sure prescriptions would be affordable under my insurance and always reassured me to call if I ever needed anything. Yes, his wait times can be long but that’s because Cornel over books and he doesn’t like to rush through his patients so he is well worth the wait.

I discovered Dr. Kaner by watching a YouTube Video. I was so impressed that I made an appointment with Dr. Kaner. Last Friday, Dr. Kaner spent 50 minutes with me. He virwsed my 2014 CT Scan, read four PFT reports, asked most pertinent questions, and made a thorough physical exam. He ordered a new CT Scan to compare with the old one. He ordered 16 blood tests to rule in or out the causes of fibrosis. Dr. Kaner called me on Monday, he discussed the test results, and answered my questions.

Wait time exceeded 2 hours on occassion. His personality was poor...directed his attention to the computer screen when conversing with me as opposed to actually talking with me. Extremely chaotic office environment where he was obviously triple booked for his appointments which contributed to the excessive wait times.
