He is an excellent Doctor, with a wonderful sense of humor. He does not see you as just a patient but as a person. I would not want any other Doctor to take care of me. He found the cancer in my body several years back and referred me to a Doctor he would see.

Dr. Kanner is an OKAY doctor, not great, not horrible. HOWEVER -- his office staff, especially those who answer the phone, SHOULD BE FIRED IMMEDIATELY.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kanner for many years. He is straightforward, compassionate, and caring. He saw me when I had no insurance and madecsure that all prescriptions were affordable and supplied coupons when available. I changed insurances to stay with Dr. Kanner and would do so again.
