Annik in the front office is not only efficient, but is kind and so accommodating to the patients. Dr. Brian Gantwerker, is a thorough and highly conscientious doctor. Was there for a consult and he came in prepared and was careful not to tell me definitively what would be done until he had more test done.

Dr. Gantwerker is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled physician, and is truly dedicated to his patients. Unlike most physicians today, he took the time to thoroughly review my health history and test results,, ask me in-depth questions, and to analyze my back injuries in order to effectively guide me on the best course of action. He is a real gem, combining tremendous skill with empathy. I highly recommend him.

Absolutely the best. I have put my spine health in his hands twice now and if need be would do it again. I love the positive vibes that radiate from Annick, Halina and Dr. Gantwerker. The encouragement before and after the needed surgeries was phenomenal. I cannot say how much I appreciate all of the care and encouragement that I have been given over the years. Many thanks and lots of love!
