My visit on April 14th was a very good experience. I had previously seen him several years ago and decided to consult him recently for a cervical spine problem. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking a cranial or spinal specialist.

Initial visit and Dr Gantwerker could not have been more thorough, patient and comprehensive in his approach. I left feeling very comfortable in his hands, even though my surgery is daunting.

Dr Gantwerker is amazing. I had back surgery with another doctor and I had reocurring problems that made walking any distance painful and almost impossible. I went to Dr Ganterker for help. He said the other doctor did a good job and the condition I had could have happened to anybody (Dr Gantwereker is a class act and cares about his patients). He reviewed my case, examined my back and gave me a recommendation for a surgical repair. I had the surgery and followed his post operative instructions. I have not fealt this good in years. I'm back to doing anything I want. Dr Gantwereker put me on a return to golf program and now I'm playing every week with my son. Dr. Gantwerker gave me my life back and I can't thank him enough !!!!!

Staff is great. Very friendly. Dr. Gantwerker was through and made sure to explain details for me, and wanted to be sure I comprehended him. He seemed very friendly, kind and interested in detail. Just wish he was part of Motion Picture network.

Dr. Gantwerker is one of the world’s greatest surgeons and a wonderful person as well. My back operation for spondylolisthesis was an amazing success: Perfect results, a quick recovery, and no pain. My back injury was decades old and had become worse with time. Exercise and fitness are essential parts of my life, and my spine was becoming very unstable. After having the surgery, I feel as solid as an oak tree. Dr. Gantwerker has given me a better future than I could ever have imagined! It is impossible to praise Dr. Gantwerker and everyone associated with my operation too highly! I thank this wonderful physician with all my heart.

The doctor explained things so I understood everything clearly. I found him to be very reassuring and knowledge about my condition and the outcome of his recommendation.

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.

Dr. G goes above and beyond. He rushed out of a meeting just to make our appointment, then personally walked me down to CT, and delivered the results a half-hour later. He practices medicine the way it was meant to be — caring and personal. Can’t recommend him enough. Thanks, Dr. G!
