Dr. Kaniecki was extremely helpful when I needed his services for headaches resulting from severe whiplash. I have since referred other patients to his office and every one of them have thanked me and are also extremely pleased with Dr. Kaniecki. His practice is absolutely wonderful at solving all headache issues.

Outstanding physician. Dr Kaniecki is the only Dr in my 25+ years in dealing with migraines who has consistently and significantly reduced the frequency and severity of them. He is truly amazing

This Dr. Is awesome, he makes my life better. He is making my migraine headaches disappear. I have had them for 53 years almost every day. No one has helped in all this time,even though they thought they could.

Have been a patient for over 10 years. Have seen Dr. Kaniecki and his PA, Kimberly. Both have been patient and kind with frustrating chronic migraines. Whole staff is kind and caring. Office staff has been dealing with difficult insurance situation. Very pleased with whole staff. Always pulling another treatment, "out of their sleeves" when situation feels grim.

Very disappointing experience. This is a robotic Q&A meeting where the doctor asks you questions in rapid fire fashion all the while typing furiously your answers, and then like magic, the computer prints out and the doctor reads your results. Presto! It is very formulaic with no regard to the patient experience.
