Dr. Thomas V Kantor has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
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.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I have been a patient of Dr Kantor for many years and not once have I ever been disappointed. He is extremely knowledgeable and continues to keep on his studies on the cutting edge of his specialty. Yet, he is not afraid to consult with others when there is a need. As a person, he has a tremendous capacity to show compassion and empathy in all situations. He is never too busy to take extra time and is personally aware of all his patient needs. Even when not working he will check his messages to ensure that his patients are taken care of. Totally dedicated and giving. I am one of the lucky ones that have him as my rheumatologist. I Wish everyone could find the same phenomenal care, that I receive from Dr Kantor.
Great doctor!! Had to switch to another new rheumotologist and he has done wonders for myself and my Mom... I wished he was around, before my Sister passed away, very kind, caring and calls you after hours if need be. He also visits in the hospital on his days off, even if you weren't admitted for himself, but another doctor...
