    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Four Stars

Rooms in office are "simple no frills" and a little down at the heel. He is through, and has good follow up. I have seen him for 8 years and will continue. 4*s

Worst doctor I ever had

Doctor Kanter kept me waiting more than a month for a test. He performed all kinds of unnecessary tests on me to drive up the bill. He asked me to get a flu shot like 4 times in one visit. His staff is incompetent at simple tasks and overly rude. He doesn't take credit cards for copay which says that he is cheap. His examination rooms were dirty.. etc.. Don't pay him a visit.
