I went there last week. had to wait a long time (more then 2 hours), finally its my turn, She walked in and asked me "why are you here", when i start explain my issue she just said "OK" and left, then she send the nurse with my prescription without even explaining how should take them and for how long... very rude

Can't believe she is a Dr. She totally blew me off when I was trying to tell her my symptoms. She prescribed nose drops for me, and come to find out later.. I had stage 4 cancer. I would not recommend this Dr. to anyone.

Poor bedside manner and not willing to listen to patients at all. She misdiagnosed me and I was terrible next couple days.

Not a good experience with her. She didn't listen and misdiagnosed as a result. Now have issues that I wouldn't have if she would have listened instead of judged me based on a piece of paper. She also didn't follow-up once a test result came back which would have been a cue that what she said was wrong really wasn't the case.

I was very pleased with my experience with Dr Kani. I can be a hard critic of emergency care places and the people employed by them. Combine that attitude with an innate crankiness when I’m not feeling at all well and the result can be much less than pleasant. It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. Dr Kani made me feel that I was in safe hands and even made me smile when I left, she made me believe they are the best.. I appreciated her follow-up and willingness to answer questi

She prescribed me a drug which has a black box warning against using for a common UTI. The warning specifically says to only use as a LAST RESORT and has an additional warning for patients over 60, of which I am. Now I am damaged with neuropathy, tendon issues, loss of collagen, etc. Also, she discounted my own diagnosis, which was right, and was curt with me. PS The UTI was not cured. All this I found out after I woke up unable to walk. FLOXED.

One of the best doctors I have seen, professional and asks right questions to diagnose the illness.. yes of course that's the Job of every doctor but that needs right skills! Understanding physiological stress the patient is undergoing because of illness that he is not aware of and recommending proper medication and suggestions to avoid such issues in future. This is just my opinion as I had only appointment with this doctor and never had to contact back for the same illness.
