Dr. Charles E Canter has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Meanest ICU Attending Imaginable

Long story short: Dr. Canter was as mean as possible during his rotation as ICU attending physician about 10 or so years ago. He said my little boy "looked like death warmed over," and "a bag of bones." Maybe his heart has changed, but he was a cold, horrible, self-centered person. Everyone who ever met my boy loved him dearly and admired his strength and courage and during his entire lifetime of 15 years, only Dr. Canter ever disrespected him and hurt my husband and I the way he did.
