Conceded and don’t care!!

I don’t even want to give dr kanter any stars... he is one of the most conceded dr I have ever met... I have been in pain management for 5 years have had every injection in every area and radio frequency ablation in 2 different areas... went to dr kanter and he told me to lose the weight and you will be fine.. needless to say I had a discogram done after I seen him and now I am having the bottom 2 discs fused and not by him!!!! I think that instead of thinking people are just fat and lazy he needs to look More into what the issue is!!!! MRI’s did NOT show that 2 of my discs are leaking and are bad... I wouldn’t have gained!!

Terrible Experience

I waited an hour and a half to see Dr. Kanter. The exam room had surgical staples on the floor so I’m glad I didn’t take my shoes off. This is the second time I’ve seen him. I was told to exercise and eat healthy. I have been in severe debilitating pain for 2.5 years. I am told I have a pinched nerve and to continue with steroid injections. I’ve had 4 in 7 months. I had some relief from one. This anesthesiologist has said that I’m at my limit for injections and that Dr. Kanter needs a plan other than injections....that and weight loss are apparently the plan. I can barely walk. In addition, I drove 2 hours to see him. Not sure where to go from here. I am so sad.😕
