Dr. Gantwerker is a superb physician, surgeon and human being. After years of leg pains, I viewed surgery as a last resort. I come from a medical family, and have always had excellent physicians, so when three of them recommended Dr. Gantwerker, I booked an appointment. After our initial visit, where he explained my condition in detail, I was convinced he could help me. He performed a lumbar decompression (L4-5) on June 1. The next day I walked 2 miles, just as he predicted. Now I’m completely pain free. Dr. Gantwerker is nothing short of a magician. In addition, his office staff is the very finest I've ever encountered, showing incredible care, efficiency, attention and kindness with every interaction.
