I had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. Dr. Kann runs his surgeries like an assembly line with focus on speed. He did not provide any information to me before or after surgery about what to expect during the recovery/healing process. I'm sure the surgery was done well. He needs to improve his interaction with patients.

Great experience. Thought for certain I would need surgery on wrist and he recommended we first try PT, a brace and cortisone. Over a 12 month period the pain gradually disappeared and I did not need the surgery. A surgeon telling you to avoid surgery---that is integrity. Although I may still need it in the future, at least this Dr tells the truth.

I had carpal tunnel surgery June, 2016. Had many issues with it not healing. Finally had another EMG test this year. Lo and behold, I still have carpal tunnel in the same hand that he supposedly did the surgery on. I would absolutely not recommend him to anyone. If you want a Doctor who will address any problems that you might encounter, find another Doctor.

Dr. Kann did my carpal tunnel surgery 2-weeks ago. I was able to go back to work that night. It was a wonderful experience. I have recommended him to several colleagues due to the lack of time off needed. It was happy that I was able to get tested the same day, & scheduled for surgery 4-days later. I have been to him twice before for other hand related issues and each time was very knowledgeable and taught me why I was having issues.

Dr. Steven Kann did my carpal tunnel both wrist! I was back to work the next day this guy is a magician the staff was very nice and comforting. I would recommend everyone here!!! two weeks out and i'm almost back to normal!! even if you don't need surgery go see them they are just that nice!!!

All Dr. Kann did was take x-rays. When I tried to have a discussion about my pain, I was dismissed. When I tried to ask questions about alleviating the pain, I was dismissed. Kann dismissed me over and over again. He was in a rush to be rid of me, not to have a conversation about Sports Medicine. I was told that, instead of running so much, perhaps I should "grab some of my little girlfriends and take one of those little spinning classes." Kann did not take me seriously as an athlete or patient.

Everything was great. Facility was very clean. Staff was friendly & very helpful. Dr. Kann was very informative & did an excellent job on my carpal tunnel surgery. He even called me at home later in the day to see how I was doing & if I had any questions. I would highly recommend him.
