Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Kanen and her PA Ann Strain and both AWESOME!!! They both listen well to concerns and discusses options and answers ANY and ALL questions!! They are very easy to talk to and they are both VERY UNDERSTANDING!!
A new patient here and the staff are very nice, professional and knowledgeable. All my questions were answered. I had an appointment with Doctor Ann Strain and she was very nice and made sure all my health concerns are answered. She didn't rush me and really listens to all my concerns.
She was great! Listened, very personable and intelligent.
She is the best doctor I have ever met
Dr. Kanen and Dr. Strain plus their staff are wonderful!! I have been to MANY doctors in my life with all my medical problems and Dr. Kanen and Dr. Strain are two of the best I've ever seen!!!
Dr. Kanen is fantastic. I highly recommend.
She takes on quite a bit. Always busy at her practice but they are working really hard to get everyone through. When she finally sees me I always feel like she is paying attention and cares. I know how hard it must be to manage so many patients but she does a great job. Of course in this rat race world, you will never make everyone happy.
The zocdoc system initally didn't communicate well with her front office. We got it straightened out by phone.she was able to see me on short notice and and spent a great deal of time with me.
A good visit, we are finally getting comfortable
Dr. Kanen is amazing. She cares, is compassionate, and is extremely, extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Kanen really takes the time to listen to a patient and come up with a very intelligent approach-it is evident from the beginning that she deeply cares about every patient of hers and wants the best for them. Beyond an incredible bedside manner, she really is the sharpest, most intelligent Doctor in her field. I absolutely give the strongest recommendation for Dr. Kanen.
The doctor is amazing, the office was somewhat clean. You could tell the staff was not going through the waiting room on a regular basis by the old papers on the wall that displayed events over a month old. Not impressed with the way the office is ran have had my time wasted more than have been helped. Seems to take numerous attempts to get anything accomplished unless you physically go into the office and speak to someone. Even when doing this (another time killer) things do not always get worked out. It is a pity since Dr. Kanen is an amazing professional that she is being represented in this manner.
The best physician for substance abuse!! I also suffer from an eating disorder, and I feel her compassion and empathy has made direct progress towards my recovery! Can't recommend enough.
I had some difficulty understanding her Russian/Georgia accent when she discussed medications & diagnostic tests. I'm very confident she's knowledgable and concerned about best care. O
Compassionate, kind & incredibly intelligent!!
I have been dr kanen's patient for over 10 years. I always love to go there and the office is very organized. I am a big fan of lemi medical clinic. from the doctor, to physician assistant to the staff. great place to go.
Fantastic experience top to bottom. Scheduling, check-in, payment, and referral were all handled without issue. Dr. Kanen is fantastic. I look forward to going back, and highly recommend to everyone.
The wait time at Dr Kanen's office has always been > 45mins with appointments. The staff does not answer any questions and completely ignored me for 15 mins while I waited at the window. Dr Kanen gave me a printed copy with the medication listed but did not send a prescription to the pharmacy, took me 2 more phone calls to the office to get it resolved.
amazing staff and doctors.. They are always able to get your in for emergencies and the staff at the office is so helpful with eveything. I highly recommend this doctor 1!
It was a delight to be seen by Nani Kanen. She let me share my whole list with her. 10 - 15 items that I was concerned with. I am very pleased that I read previous reviews about her and chose her as my new doctor.
Best Dr and staff in the area !! Always willing to help And get me in when I need a quick appointment and the girls at the front desk are super helpful and kind
I am so pleased with everyone in this office, the Drs., the Physician Assistants, the nurses, technicians and front office staff. Everyone is always competent, positive and helpful.
Dr.Kanen has an amazing bedside manner. And she's very truthful and trustworthy.
I chose Nani as my primary care practitioner because I read other good reviews about her, and she definitely lived up to all of the reviews. She is very informative and she truly cares for her patients. Highly reccommended.
Amazing. She was so helpful and wanted to make sure I got the most out of my visit
I think Dr. Kanen is a great provider. I appreciate her willingness to spend as much time with the patient as necessary to ensure all your questions are answered.
Excellent..I give her two thumbs up. You can tell she enjoys what she does. I was a little nervous about seeing a new doctor. We just moved here from out of state, and we have not had luck. However, she was winner with my husband and I have to say, I was pleasantly happy with my first visit. I look forward to being under her care. She immediately jumped on having some tests done so she can really see what is going on with me. She also ordered my medical records from my previous doctor which is out of state.
She is great!. Her office staff is not as friendly.
Smart lady ordered blood work for me based on my family history and tests based on my age. Also funny and competent
Dr. Kanen was efficieny and professional. She ordered lab work that I requested and also had some recommendations of her own. Her staff were all courteous and professional.
First appointment, and was very happy with Dr Kanen. Great bedside manner, and really seems to want to optimize patient health.
Excellent very thorough.
The wait time was less than 10 minutes. The parking could be limited. Overall, I was satisfied with the visit and would recommend Dr. Kanen!
Easy to get to, good parking. The staff are friendly and professional. The office is nicely decorated, comfortable and spacious. The doctor is kind, shows genuine interest, listens and asks all the questions you would hope your doctor asks. Blood work can be done at the same office. I have found a good doctor (what a relief).
Dr. Kanen was honestly the best PCP I've ever been to. I was so impressed how she seemed to care so much about my health both mentally and physically. I didn't feel like just another patient...I felt important.
I've seen this doctor twice and was pretty happy. Parking isn't great, but not impossible. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Her accent is a little strong, but that might just be me. I got about 95% of what she was saying. She's very nice and I felt comfortable talking to her, and felt like she listened and asked enough questions, which is something my previous doctor lacked. Only negative was that the doctor she referred me to doesn't actually do the procedure I needed, so there was a little confusion with that. Overall a good experience.
Very personable and helpful. Didn't feel rushed and liked her bedside manner and outlook on health.
