Dr. Kanter is an excellent doctor and a great oncologist. He diagnosed my multiple myeloma eight years ago. He told me that although this disease has no cure, it is highly treatable. Dr. Kanter always addressed any concern I had and answered every question I asked. I always felt that we were partners in deciding the best treatment option, as opposed to typical doctor dictating everything scenario. Each treatment option kept my disease in check for a long period of time. Dr. Kanter was always quick to change to a different drug regimen whenever the current one exhibited signs of losing effectiveness. Dr. Kanter keeps abreast of the literature and always has another option that can be employed if needed. I have been symptom-free throughout the course of my therapy and I attribute this to Dr. Kanter. I owe my life to Dr. Kanter.

2019 was my cancer year, which of course, was scary. Dr. Kanter was always ready to listen to my concerns and left me feeing better each time I left his office. I never felt rushed. I hope I never need him again, but if I do, he's the one I'll go to. Keep up the good work!

I would completely recommend Dr Kanter. My fist meeting with him he jumped into action, New what gene mutation I had (most doctors have heard of since only 1% of the population has it). I have been seeing him for five years now. Any concerns I have had, he personally has taken the time to return my phone calls. Has been very diligent on looking into any concern I have had. And his personal interest in me is an added bonus. You know he is listening.
