I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Canty and his staff. From the moment I entered the office I was greeted warmly and received. The ladies at the front desk were very kind and helpful. I have suffered chronic lower back pain for years. This time when my back went out the pain was unbearable. It hurt to walk and even stand and the pain radiated down my left leg and up entire left side, even giving me terrible headaches. On my first visit with Dr. Canty his medical staff was superior. His PA Christine is wonderful and instills great confidence due to her immense knowledge of the body. She examined me thoroughly and knew right where the points of pain were. She explained what the problem was exactly but said I needed an MRI so that they could be sure. I was in terrible pain and my heart sunk when I thought that was all that could be done until the MRI. She then said that until the MRI they could offer me the trigger point injections. I was so grateful I felt like crying from reief just to hear that I could be helped immediately. Christine gave me the injections which did not hurt at all and after a few minutes I was able to stand up and bend over which I hadn't been able to do for about two weeks. I jquickly scheduled my MRI with Lenox Hill radiology where I am going tomorrow afternoon. After they get the results back, Dr. Canty will phone me to schedule my next visit with him. As I said previously I am entirely grateful to the doctor and his kind knowledgeable staff.

dr canty has no control over his office. my appointment was for 1 PM and i did not get seen until 230. you just cannot, CANNOT treat people like that. I'm sorry, but my time matters, i have a job i miss when im held in that office for hours on end. Whos going to make up for the work i need to do? Dr Canty? He needs to learn how to keep his appointments and not run his office like a circus. I go to the doctor because im in pain and needs help, not because i want to piss away hours of my day waiting around for nothing. if you want to see a monkey on a unicycle with an umbrella call dr canty, if you want to be seen on time by a professional look elsewhere

I have had several epidural injections and while they are not "painful" they are never pleasant experience,however today I never even felt a single injection, not even the lidocaine to numb the area. I kept waiting for the tell tail pinch followed by burn and thought what Dr Canty was doing was just prepping not the actual injection, however, next thing I knew he said he was done, still can't believe it. He must have magic hands, I never felt a single injection and usually I will have about 2-3 lidocaine pinches per area. Dr Canty was also very kind, great pt interaction. I am hopeful I will have better outcome working with Dr. Canty.

Dr. Canty is always willing to listen to and address your concerns. I have been a patient for a few years now and would not go to anyone else. I have suffered with chronic back pain for over 25 years and before seeing Dr. Canty I could not find relief. I tried orthopedists, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists and acupuncturists to no avail. I now get trigger point injections from Dr. Canty every three to four months and my pain is greatly reduced.

I have been going to Dr. Canty for some time now and am very pleased with the results. He listens to your complaints and suggests the best course of treatment, which for me always works. Usually I am in and out of his office quickly but on this visit it seems as if they overbooked and I waited longer than usual. The office staff are very nice and accommodating but seem a little disorganized at times.

This is my second review of Dr. Canty and his staff, it's been 9 months since I last saw him and its great to see the experience from A-Z has not only remained top notch but improved. Dr. Canty is possibly the most compassionate doctor I've had the pleasure of meeting. When I come in with terrible pain I can truly see the look of concern in his face. I waited 45 seconds, was taken back and assessed by one of his nurses, Dr Canty popped his head in to say hello, and I was taken back for injection within 5 mins. His nurse that helps in the procedure room is a total sweetheart. They spoke to me throughout the procedure and told me what was happening and what to expect. I always come in nervous and upset and Dr Canty tries to calm me and assure me that everything is going to be ok. Sometimes it's the small stuff that makes the difference and I am so blessed to have found Dr Canty and his staff. Thank you guys for all you do for me!
