What Our Patients Are Saying

JH Blank

"Unlike the person above who complained his calls were not returned, I have to say Dr. Blair is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. The communications problems were probably the result of the Weill Cornell Portal."

"Dr. Kaner is one of my exceptional physicians who has been treating my ILD/IPF since 2016. He is a highly praised Pulmonologist, very kind and caring human being, and most responsive to follow up email communications. I am BLESSED to be his patient."

"I suffered from breathing difficulties for several years. After taking dozens of spirometry and asthma tests, it was determined by another pulmonologist I did not have asthma; however, a variety of other doctors believed I did. Still, I couldn't breathe well. Finally, I went to Dr. Kaner, whose patient questionnaire was comprehensive. When we met, he was thorough in reading through my information and asked clarifying questions. Another reviewer noted he spent a lot of time looking at the computer. This is how he was able to properly diagnose me! By analyzing the data and listening to my breathing. I wanted an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. He cares about his patients' well-being, and he answered any questions and concerns I had along the way. He ordered the tests that finally revealed the source of my breathing problems, and then prescribed medication that had me breathing effortlessly for the first time in years. His diagnosis and treatment have been a life-changer."
