I would never recommend Doctor Kanarek to anyone. I had two visits with her. Went the second time to see my MRI results. She is rude, abrasive and condescending and rushed me during my appointments with her. She is awful. I left her three messages to please return my call as I was in enormous pain. It took her a week to return my call. Please do not see Dr. Kanarek with your orthopedic problems.

With her specialized experience in non-surgical management of the spine (back) she was able to readily assess my deficits and readily determined a course of action.

I was nervous about the emg test but was put at ease right away. Dr Kanerek explained so I understood exactly what was going to happen & engaged me in a great conversation and the test was over before I knew it

This was my first visit with Dr. Kanarek which involved a new unfamiliar procedure. She took the time to explain the steps and discussed options with me. I was very comfortable with her, the X-ray technician and staff.

First visit she appeared to listen. Second visit I realized that she did not hear one thing I said to her. Her behavior is something that female baby boomers usually associate with male physicians which has never been my experience at Brielle orthopedics. Her ego is Incredibly huge and gets in the way of treatment

Was about 15 minutes late, no big deal. She was very nice, explained what she was doing every step of the way during my test. Will not hesitate to go back to her. Office staff was exceptional as always, I have been to this office many, many times. I highly recommend this Doctor!

Dr Kanarek, in my opinion is straight forward with her evaluation and diagnosis in her care for patients. I have seen her a few times for an injection in my hip as I am delaying a hip replacement till next year. She and her staff are knowledgeable, polite and helpful. Always a pleasant experience!
