Dr Gantwerker is a very personable doctor who is most interested in my health condition. It was very interesting to see and to hear about my MRI test results. He shared information about my diagnosis and thoroughly discussed treatment measures that were availablew helped me to release much of the anxiety that I had about my health condition and pains.

Dr. Gantwerker is a very personable and an attentive physician. I didn't wait to see him for long. He gave me a prognosis and a convenient future appointment date. It looks like he has made my neck better too.

Dr Gantwerker always begins a visit with a very friendly greeting. He provided an in-depth review of my latest CT scan, pointing out that the screws and other hardware were all in place, that the bone grafts were accepted by my body, and new bone growth was evident. He always asks me if I have any questions of him before the visit is over. He encourages me to call the office if anything comes up related to the surgery before my next appointment. He explained some technical reasons why he prescribes certain medicines, which I found very helpful. I highly appreciate the cheerful front office staff, who carefully talked me through every step of the surgery process, making me feel confident and secure about the surgery, and the postoperative procedures.

I met Dr. Gantwerker as my third opinion, I'm so happy that I made this visit a priority before having surgery by anyone. Upon my arrival the office staff made me feel very welcome despite some other reviews that I have read. My only concern with administration was the insecurity I left with about their billing procedures and how they would or would NOT communicate with my insurance provider. As for Dr. Gantwerker, TOP NOTCH! His experience speaks for itself however his demeanor is not arrogant or belittling, NEVER in my medical history has any Dr. spent so much time assessing my needs, his attention to detail is astounding. My condition has lead me to several other top surgeons in search of who I'd choose as my surgeon. This quest has lead me to three other Dr's who all were quick to identify what was causing my pains, however when I asked them about additional symptoms they dismissed my concerns telling me that we should address one thing at a time, NOT Gantwerker! he has setup further test to determine what were dealing with in advance. This was important for me and it has made it really easy for me to decide that he will be my surgeon. I highly recommend anyone reading this to consult with DR Gantwerker before proceeding with others.
