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.

I am friendly and easy-going with my patients, and I try to take the fear out of their diagnoses and give them the best possible care.
