Ratings for Dr. Robert A. Kanter
I have seen this doctor for a thyroid problem. He was consistently late by an hour or more. He was rude, condescending as was his staff. After he corrected my thyroid problem I gained weight his solution was to put me on a 500 calorie a day diet. What medical doctor does that! my husband later was referred to him. He treated the symptoms by giving him viagra instead of treating the underlying issue of hypogonadism. If we had gone with his treatment my husband would have continued to lose bone mass and be a mess by now. My advice is to not see this doctor. I tell everyone I know who needs a an endrochronologist, not to go to him. I work in the medical field.
By the book numbers guy. Very nice person but did not really connect the dots on my sypmptoms and. No out of the box thinking. I don't remember a lot of questions being asked. I left his office in no better shape and no questions answered. My hard to diagnose thyroid condition continued for another sad two years.
I went to see Dr. Kanter for the first time recently for weight management. I waited an hour to meet with him and was shocked that no one ever communicated a single word to me regarding their lack of organization or tardiness. Their attitude (including Dr. Kanter) was that they didn't really care as they have enough business so they don't have to treat people with fundamental respect by simply communicating (as that would require accountability) and even an apology for being late. It gets better... During my meeting with Dr. Kanter there was no apology, no introductory handshake, nothing. He came in and sat down and never looked up once. I have spent 15 years in the medical field and as in any other field there are some really amazing health care professionals out there, as well as a few that you wonder why they chose to "help" people as a profession. Simply stated, I would not recommend him....
I didn't start out being very impressed with this docutor as my 1st appointment was cancelled without my knowledge and my 2nd appointment ran 1/2 hour late and my 3rd appointment 1 hour late. I now know to call ahead to find out how far behind he might be running. I have an unusual problem and have been to multiple doctors beforee seeing Dr. Kanter. He was able to diagnose and treat me. I'm doing great now thanks to him. He listens and actively answers my questions. He is heavily booked and tends to run late so bring a book!
I wondered about coming here when they requested a credit card before they would make my 1st apt. Then they sent me some notes with the very first paragraph all about missed apt fees. $250.00 if a 1st time patient doesn't cancel with 48 business hours notice.... Dr Kanter never asked why I was there. He asked questions & hurried my answers. When I tried to ask a question, he put his hand in front of my face and said he needed to focus! He then rushed out.
I made an appointment today on 6/8 @ 10:30am with Shawna at Dr Cantors office...very helpful and made an appt for 6/22. three hours later the office whatever "Stephanie" called my boyfriend to say they were not taking any new patients?Does this make any sense? My belief is that this is a personal issue of Stephanies, and Dr Cantor needs to be informed of this. Thanks Cheryl Greeny
I was ffiteen minutes early for my appointment, however I had to wait thirty mionutes past my appointment, befor I was seen. He asked questions, for which he had the answers in front of him. Then he charged my insurance company $466.00. I have to pay him $79.00 of that bill. How can I trust a Doctor that thinks this is ok?
I was told I my have to wait and I DID, I brought a book like they said in their reminder call and when I arrived, they said Dr Kanter was running behind. I waited about an hour after my appointment time to get into a room. (My friend said I would) I wasn't happy until I left mu appointment and I KNEW just what to do, how to do it, when to do it and WHY! I have NEVER had such a thourough physician! Dr Kanter was AMAZING! I now KNOW what to do to take care of MYSELF! MY face to face time with Dr. Kanter was THREE HOURS!I KNEW someone else MUST be late because of me so when I was leaving I stopped at the next room and looked in. I told the woman sitting there I was sorry but that I was the reason she had had to wait so long. She just said to me..... Dr Kanter ALWAYS cares more about ME than the CLOCK! I never mind having to wait to stay healthy! I WILL ALWAYS recommend Dr. Kanter ... with a warning.... BRING A BOOK AND YOUR PATIENCE!!! THANK YOU DR. KANTER
