With dr Kantu great but with the some of staff mean and rude. I wish they watch their attitude.
in Brooklyn, NY |
His receptionists refused to check with his health insurance because he didn't have his actual ID card from Health Plus. We had his ID # as well as any other information they might have needed to check. I guess it was almost time to go home. They refused to see him. I am sure the Dr. is not aware of this. If he is SHAME ON HIM to refuse to see a child because they don't have a piece of plastic with them.

Dr. Kantu has been my doctor since June 2010. I made an appointment because I had been treated for nasal infections by two other doctors who prescribed antibiotics and the infections kept returning. Dr. Kantu recommended a surgery to correct my deviated septum, clean my sinus and turbinates. During the surgery Dr. Kantu biopsied my septum and discovered that I had a squamous cell carcinoma on my septum. Dr. Kantu explained all my issues and made an appointment for me with a colleague at MSK.

I saw one of the doctors at this office. The doctor was 'talking at me' not to me. The doctor was definitely in a big rush to move onto another patient. I did not have a conversation about my health with the doctor. I was told what I should do and moved along the medical conveyor belt at their office.
