Five Stars

Dr. Canty has been my primary doctor for over a decade now, and she's excellent. She shares relevant research, is very thorough, listens carefully, has excellent bedside manner, and always follows through. She's the best doctor I've known, very smart, very professional.

Lacking substance

I hung in there for a few years (too many), but came to find that her chatty demeanor and self deprecating sense of humor is basically all that's in there. The office runs very average (again despite the "show" of appearance, the substance is lacking). Basically an average HMO doctor at an average HMO type practice - nothing more to expect.
