Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional, knowledgeable, hospitable, capable.
i really appreciate that the receptionist let me know as soon as i checked in that the Dr was running late due to a meeting.
Very comfortable visit (my second annual checkup) Dr. Kanos is extremely knowledgable and sensible. He calms nerves well, and helps the patient make informed decisions. The appointment was not at all rushed, and he double checked that I did not have any more questions or concerns.
I have been going to Dr Kanos for over 5 years now. He is informative and gentle with his pelvic exams, which is a plus!
Office is clean and the staff are friendly and professional.
My husband and I are so excited about Dr. Kanos and his staff as we've been searching for an OBGYN that we felt comfortable with. His staff was so helpful and friendly, he had great bedside manners and attended to all questions that were asked. We are excited to have found him!
Dr. Kanos has been my Ob-Gyn doctor for about 17 years now. Dr. Kanos is always caring and patient
I am so happy that Dr. Kanos has stayed - he is such an excellent doctor that I am always afraid he'll leave for a better position. Please do whatever you can to keep staff who are as valuable as he is!
I've been seeing Dr.Kanos for the past 4 years very professional and easy to talk to.
Dr. Kanos is very thorough. He answered all my questions and took his time.
Excellent doctor, I was a bit reluctant to see him because I rather see a female obstritician. Am glad I did, he takes his time to answer all questions and makes you feel at ease. Highly recommended and glad I wait 3weeks to see him.
I went to Dr. Kanos after having a very bad experience with my previous OB/GYN. He carefully listened to my concerns, he talked to me about the things that we could do and overall the experience with him was an extremely positive one! Ever since I moved to NYC I've been trying to find a reliable OB/GYN that is knowledgeable about the practice and makes me feel comfortable, if this is what you are looking for - Dr. Kanos is your guy.
I saw Dr Kanos after not having visited an ob/gyn in many years. I told him about a traumatic experience I had with a gynecologist I saw before him, and he replied with words that could have been comforting, but his tone, I felt, was judgmental. He is efficient, but he is not warm. There is a Patient Portal where one can electronically submit non-urgent questions to one's doctor, and while he answered my first question in a perfunctory manner, he did not answer my second, follow-up question. I don't need my ob-gyn to be my best friend, but a little friendliness goes a long way. I personally won't see him again.
Dr Kanos has been my obgyn for over a decade and delivered my two children. He is professional but also caring and thorough, even though he is very busy. I always feel heard by him and his staff.
Dr Kanos is my favorite!!!!
I love him. He comes across as uninterested and droll during appointments with a dry sense of humor. But when it comes do to it, he comes alive and is AMAZING!!!! He delivered my son 3 years ago and was so patient and thoughtful, I can't say it enough.
very friendly staff and doctor
HE IS AWESOME! He answers all of my questions and provides information I didn't think to ask about. He is very professional, efficient and has a wonderful personality.
I was extremely scared and nervous about my visit, because I have a case of uterine fibroids and I want to preserve my fertility for the future. Dr. Kanos answered all my questions and kept me calm. Some doctors are wonderful in their field but not the best communicators. Dr. Kanos is an excellent communicator and out my mind at ease. I am glad I switched my GYN and I am sure I'm in excellent hands. The wait time was minimal and I was seen right on time. All staff members were pleasant and informative. Couldn't be happier to find a doctor I trust. :)
This was my first visit. I was there for a routine exam. Dr. Kanos was thorough with my exam. He asked questions and showed concern for my well being. I would go back again.
Very professional ...
great doctor and staff. Very friendly and professional. I went for my pap and he offered me additional testing and answered all of my questions. I would definitely recommend.
He is an excellent doctor. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and makes sure he answers all your questions. The staff is excellent as well.
Very nice and professional, made me feel at ease.
It was great!
It was very informative, I wanted to change my birth control, and the doctor explained in detail the good and bad points of changing to a new medication.
He was very patient, helpful and explained everything in great detail.
Very good questions asked by the doctor. He was thoughtful and thorough, and knowledgeable. I look forward to becoming a regular patient.
The nurse who made two very painful attempts at taking my blood and tried to take it from the wrong vein. Never again! The dr only recommends one factuality in the whole city for follow up treatment. The service was awful.
Dr. Kanos and his team are amazing. They have taken care of me through two pregnancies. During my last pregnancy, I ended up in the hospital. My husband and I felt very comfortable and safe knowing that Dr. Kanos was there. His assistant Elena is so caring. I feel like she is family when I see her. They are a great team!
This was my first visit with Dr. Kanos and I had nothing to complain. Dr. Kanos is very kind and gentle. Nothing was rushed and my Pap smear took place smoothly and painlessly. Before and after the exam, Dr. Kanos took the time to address all my questions. All the staff who work there are also very nice. I sure will come back again.
Dr. Kanos was one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I saw Dr. Kanos for my pregnancy and he delivered my baby. His staff is exceptional. He is very attentive and never makes you feel rushed. His hospital staff is outstanding and performed a very smooth delivery for me. He is very knowledgeable and has a very calming countenance, which is especially helpful for first time moms. I highly recommend Dr. Kanos!
Very comfortable with Dr Kaynos. I continue to recommend my friends, family and co workers
Dr. Kanos is one of the best OB-GYN in my opinion. I plan on using him as my doctor for many years to come.
Very professional and patient with explanations. Totally trust him!
Dr Kanos is hit or miss with his bedside manner. If he is having a good day you are a wonderful patient. If he is having a bad day or you note any issue, he won't be helpful with any questions or issues you have. It makes you wonder how he gets by billing the insurance company and collecting co-pays. While I was pregnant he was hit or miss and I don't find it acceptable when you are a soon to be mom and concerned about the health and well being of your baby and yourself. In my opinion I wouldn't go to this doctor if you have any underlying medical concerns.
DR. KANOS WAS AMAZING, HE WAS VERY POLITE, GENTLE AND ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS. HIS TEAM IS VERY RESPECTFUL AND EVERYONE WAS APPROACHABLE AND NICE. ALSO VERY EFFICIENT. GREAT VISIT.
Very nice over all experience.
Dr. Kanos is great. I have been a patient of his for 8 years and would recommend him to anyone. His front office, on the other hand, has much to be desired. They don't even greet you when you walk in and if you try calling, they are very rude and unaccommodating on the phone. I had a UTI and needed to see Dr. Kanos and they told me I could come in the following week! I wish the office staff was as great as he is because they have made me consider other doctors because they can never help with anything.
Was pregnant, had a miscarriage which was incomplete and lasted a full month. Although we were having weekly visits, Dr. Kanos apparently didn't believe my account of what was going on and sent me on my way when I expressed concern that the miscarriage was taking so long (this was a pregnancy that ended around 5-6 weeks, so VERY early on; most miscarriages take 1-2 weeks). That appointment was on a Thursday. On Monday, I ended up in the hospital and needed TWO blood transfusions because I had lost so much blood. Suffice to say I was not pleased with the care I received.
Dr Kanos was thorough with my diagnosis. He asked me if I had questions for him. He answered them to the best of his knowledge and offered me options. He was polite and considerate. I knew right there and then I wanted him to be my OB/Gyn.
He is an excellent doctor who is thoroughly knowledgeable and also very caring. I highly recommend him.
Love my doctor! Very professional and caring. Great assistants too!
Dr. Kanos is the 3rd GYN I've ever had. He is so personable, easy to talk to and very knowledgeable.
I have been going to Dr. Kanos for 16 years and I keep coming back because he is always consistent and answers all my questions.
Quick and professional
This was my first time with this doctor, and I found it really easy to speak to him (even though most of my gynecologists were female). He listened carefully to my concerns, was very thorough, asked the right questions, and basically made it a comfortable experience. I would recommend him highly and intend to keep him as my gynecologist.
He made me feel uneasy. He didn't seem to believe me that my cramps were so bad I needed strong medication to ease them. Perhaps because he is a man and doesn't get it.
It was great. I would recommend him to my friends.
HE listen very well.
Dr. Kanos was very attentive, kind and gentle. Although this was my first appointment, I appreciated Dr. Kanos for his patience, advice and understanding. This was a very positive experience. I've already made plans to transfer my health care to him.
Medically, my visits with Dr. Kanos were fine. However, in the last eight months, I've had three separate incidents where I've been ill, and I've both been unable to see Dr. Kanos or another provider, and the office was unwilling to see if Dr. Kanos would prescribe me something over the phone for a simple recurring issue. They also refused to refer me to another provider. This office hinders healthcare, rather than facilitates it.
He is wonderful! I have been seeing him for 5 years and he delivered both of my daughters.
I ABSOLUTELY LOOOVVVVEEE this office! Very friendly, very sufficient, Very accuarte and over all respectful. Such a clean office and the wait time??? WHAT WAIT TIME??? as soon as i was about to get comfortable the nurse was calling em to come in the exam room. I am excited for this transition..! 5 stars across the board for me!
I have been going to Dr. Kanos for about 3 years now. He is super professional and very knowledgeable. He was wonderful before/during and after my pregnancy. His nurse alina is also amazing and so caring. The reception is also super sweet and always on point. I def. recommend Dr. Kanos!
Excellent! Love him. :-)
Pleasant efficient office staff . The doctor is knowledgable , thorough and approachable. He answered all my questions and concerns
Quick, efficient and professional.
I was very happy with my appointment. Dr. Kanos took the time to ask me questions and make some recommendations. The other people in the office were also very friendly. I also appreciate that the wait time was only a few minutes.
Dr. Kanos is amazing. Professional, caring. spends time with me explaining treatment when I need it and answering my questions. He has been my doctor for many years and is the best OBGYN I have ever had.
Very straightforward and very helpful. I will see him again.
Always efficient and personable. Would recommend with flying colors.
Very professional, detailed oriented and provided a great deal of patience.
I've been seeing Dr Kanos a long time. He always takes a few minutes to catch up and ask about life and that allows me time to ask questions, too. He's friendly and personable.
My appointment was around lunchtime and I was in and out in about a half hour for a routine yearly exam.
Dr. Kanos is very professional, honest and willing to listen and discuss your concerns.
Dr. Kanos is a pleasure to have as a doctor. He is attentive, informative, caring, and professional. I highly recommend him. He answered all my questions and took his time during my visit.
Professional. Very nice. Made me feed comfortable.
Yes, I would recommend Dr Kanos, I feel very comfortable with him. He is very informative and kind. Always walks into the room with a smith. Which makes you relax under the circumstances.
Dr Kanos was very profeasional. He answered all my questions even before I asked. He's very down to earth and very experienced in his field. I am definitely looking forward to our next visit!!
I really love Dr Kanos. Professional, caring, and always remembers the kids he delivered (or checks the records before he comes in, either way, I appreciated it!).
Excellent doctor. Very intelligent, great communication skills, always professional, trustworthy, hard-working. I have been his patient for over ten years.
He has been my doctor for about 12 years and delivered both my children . He is professional and always takes the time to connect and listen. He is great!
I have been a long time patient of Dr. Kanos. Great Ob-gyn and professional. Caring and listens to his patients.
Dr. Kanos has a great bedside manner and I've been seeing him for many years now. You can sometimes wait a while though, so I think that the front desk staff could be more attentive, but this is a common problem with doctor's offices.
He is a great doctor.
i've been with Dr. Kanos for many years. he's attentive, gentle and easy to talk to. his staff is also very good.
I am always pleased with Dr. Kanos. I never have to wait for my apt., the nurse practitioners are always helpful and make me feel completely comfortable. Even joking around with me. Kanos's bedside manner is direct and to the point, which I like and appreciate. The OBGYN is never a fun place to go to, so I like some body that is nice and sincere but is direct and to the point and does not want to sit and chit chat and be my best friend. I always feel like I get great care, and am very aware of health issues when I leave.
Been going to him for years. Never wait more than 5-10 minutes, he takes his time, makes you feel very comfortable, listens to your needs, and doesn't rush you out. I highly recommend him.
dr. kanos was very professional and very nice! he made sure i knew everything that he was doing and answered all my questions. i felt very satisfied with my visit today.
Dr. Kanos is great and answered my questions without me feeling rushed at all. There was a bit of wait time while I was waiting for him to come into the room after the nurse did my vitals. This is sort of an ongoing issue that I have with this office. I've seen multiple doctors here, and while they'll get you into a room, be patient once you're in there.
It was my first visit to Jason Kanos, as I needed a second opinion. He is a total professional. Listened to me. Answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable. From the moment I walked in to the office, to the moment I left, I was completely satisfied. I will continue to use his services.
It went well and quickly
I have know Dr Kanos for about 10 years and he is great. Really patient, composed, tells you like it is and has a great sense of humor. Highly recommend!
Dr. Kanos makes you feel very comfortable even when your in his office for a routine annual check-up.
The doctor was very friendly and professional as was his staff. He took the time to answer all of my questions and provided good explanations.
The receptionists are kind and efficient, though very busy and won't have time to chit chat and need to speed you through check-in. The nurse who took my blood pressure was incredibly warm, sweet, and friendly. She had a very open demeanor. Dr. Kanos himself is perfectly pleasant. His exam was one of the most efficient I have had, and he was sure to explain his movements before making them. The speculum+swab was probably the least uncomfortable I have experienced. This is hard to explain, but I found him somewhat intimidating to converse with at times, and struggled to read his facial language; at times I wondered if he found my own opinions amusing. He listened patiently, but we didn't establish a very friendly rapport. Nevertheless, it was only a first appointment and I will definitely go back to hear what he has to say about my health concerns.
Dr. Kanos is very compassionate and friendly with his patients.
Dr. Kanos was very professional, did not rush me and answered all the questions that i had. My appt was on time. No waiting. I highly recommend him
Dr. Kanos was informative, but slightly dry, which doesn't help put a woman at ease in such an already uncomfortable situation. He was knowledgable and fast; however, and I will be seeing him again in the future.
Dr. Kanos is fantastic! I don't like getting my yearly check up but his calm demeanor and excellent bedside manner put me at ease.
Quick, efficient and kind....great trifecta! :)
Dr. Kanos is great, I feel very comfortable with him. He's a very kind man. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!!
Very proficient and pleasant
I have been a patient with Dr. Kanos for many years. In each visit he is always pleasant and caring. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
I think my visit went well I have been a patient for over 10years ,Dr.Kanos never fails in making me feel comfortable.He is a gentle well mannered professional.
I felt that he was brief and seemed a little bored.
He's professional and friendly. I had a lot of questions that he was very patient in answering.
I felt he was a little judgmental instead of being more concerned for my health.
he didnt seem creepy or weird like i would think a male gynecologist would lol he also taught me how to give myself a breast exam which was very helpful
Dr. Kanos has been my doctor for years. He delivered my two children ; I trust him . He is very informative, answers your questions and respects your opinion. He is great.
Very little waiting, great bedside manner. Have been going to Dr Kanos for more than 6 years and through one pregnancy. I never want to switch!
I've been seeing Dr. Kanos for many years. He's completely professional and knowledgable. The office staff is wonderful too.
The office is on the 3rd level of an old office building. It's a little disappointing to see they have spent more money on the lobby than the exam rooms. There is visible water damage marks on the ceiling (corridor) and not-so-obvious stains on the exam room curtains. That said, Dr. Kanos' very professional, quick, and very thorough. He's good at asking the right questions, making the right recommendations, without being too pushy. The nurse (Dr. Kanos' assistance) was in the room during the exam; personally I have never had a non-ob-gyn doctor during my personal exam and it felt a little uncomfortable. Overall, though, I would recommend it, although I'm going to keep on searching for a better facility for my next annual.
Outstanding physician. I've been his patient for over 10 years and I am extremely satisfied with the level of care I receive.
I have had some really bad experiences with gynos since moving to NY. But I was very relieved when I found Dr. Kanos and am fortunate to know he will be my doctor for a long time!
Dr. Kanos is a wonderful Doctor. A true professional on every level.
He is a great doctor and a great person!!!!
I'm new to this practice and have found all the doctors very good. Dr. Kanos made me feel very comfortable and is helping me through a problem. I would recommend him.
Uncommonly professional operation. Everything was on-time. The staff were friendly and helpful The doctor was a good listener and very efficient.
He was great and professional.
no. He is a bit cold and impatient.
