Raymond B – Jun 15, 2021
BEWARE.... I regret ever stepping foot inside Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center of New York with Dr. Tim Canty.   I was told I would be seen and treated by a medical doctor.  Never once was seen by a medical doctor even though I ask to see and have a physician do any procedure on my knee.   Instead, I got a  very basic P.A. named  Chrystyna who didn't really seem like she knew what she was doing. Chrystyna was not medically technical at all. It's almost as if this was her first time performing the procedure called the "one shot"  PRP Treatment.   By the way, if you're looking for a treatment to heal your knee, one shot PRP injection to the knee will most likely never work.  You need to go to a doctor that does multiple shots into the ligaments. The $1,200 I spent with Dr. Canty was a total waste.  My knee is still in pain and feels even worse now than it did before I went to Comprehensive Spine & Pain Center of New York.

Dr. Fontenot, a doctor who works with Dr. Canty, was very helpful and insightful when it came to my pain. He was able to assess the sight of my pain that radiated down legs and differentiating it from my L4/5 herniations to my sacroiliac joint (tailbone). Thank you Dr. Fontenot, Dr. Canty and their team for amazing help!

My visit was great! At Dr. Canty's office, the staff there are very neat, polite, and professional. Dr. Canty always listened to his patients, and make sure they're rest assured that they're in good hands. He understands his job, and always did excellently. They keep all to dates records. I will introduce him to any patients who are in need. I was very blessed to know him.

This was my first experience with a pain management doctor. Tamar who handles the billing went above and beyond to make sure my visit were covered through insurance and she was constantly involved to make sure I was ok. It takes a very special person to do her job and she is beyond excellent in every way possible. She is excellent in what she does. Her job is definitely a tough one and I couldn’t be more happy. Jaspreet is in NHP office and she as well was helpful. I highly recommend Dr Canty

Everything was good except for the staff who put the IV on my hand had a very difficult time putting it and it was very painful, when they took it out it started bleeding a lot. After 5 hours I changed the cotton bandage it was still bleeding and hurting.

Dr. Canty is hands down the best pain management dr that I’ve ever been to & the only one trust. He goes above & beyond to make sure he has all the info.If I don’t go for a while-due to distance, he still remembers everything, takes his time to catch up on any new problems. During (usually)painful epidural injections, Dr. Canty is so careful & takes his time to make sure that you’re ok throughout the entire procedure & keeps you calm. Worth the travel, worth any wait, DR.CANTY IS THE BEST.

Rego Park, NY – May 16, 2017
I've had 2 surgeries on my left knee (ACL reconstruction/meniscus). The arthritis began to bother me last summer so I visited Dr. C on the rec of a friend. He & his staff have been phenomenal making sure any treatments I receive are covered by insurance as well as fully inform me of my options, esp after recent MRI revealed another meniscal tear. Dr. recommended surgery despite it meaning I'd be seeking immediate Tx elsewhere. Going to get surgery & f/u w Dr. C for stem cell injections. Thx Dr!

This is the 3rd spine doctor i have been too in 4 months and the first that was able to correctly identify the source of my pain. Although i had a 20 minute wait time, the office is very professional, the doctor is extremely knowledgeable and most important, after my 2nd visit my pain is gone. Recommending everyone i know.
