"This Dr and his entire staff should be ashamed of themselves!!!!! I had my thyroid removed, and choose him to regulate my TSH replacement. It is now 8 months, my dose is still too high, leaving me with the same problem I had. 3 weeks now since I had my bloodwork, it's still high, I called the office to see if he had looked at my results only to be met by a NASTY woman who said she would send it too him. As of today, 3 weeks since my bloodwork CRICKETS, no callback. What happened to his oath"Do no harm"? I have no choice but to give him 1 star to post, but he deserves a negative 10 stars."

"Worst experience ever. Referred here due to slightly elevated reading from a blood test by primary MD. Can did not review medical history, significance of reading, causes or solutions. Can offered one solution to operate and remove parathyroid gland. We requested explanation of function and importance of gland and consequences of removal. No answer given. I told him my mother is 93 years old. He changed his tune and suggested that we monitor the situation. I question how Can can be Board Certified. I posted same review at Hackensack Merdian site which was removed. I strongly question the veracity of other reviews which were favorable for Can. I hope this review remains posted."

"I would most definitely recommend Dr. Can !!! I finally found an Endocrinology specialist that is kind and thorough and listens!!! Dr Can is knowledgeable in modern advances in this medical field. I've had issues with my Thyroid for 6 plus years now with very little luck in the past and he is by far the BEST !!! "

"Dr. Can is an extra ordinary practitioner. At every visit Dr Can reviews the results of my bloodwork with me and explains the results. I am not the only his patient as well, my husband is under his care. I will highly recommend to my family & friends. He is thorough answering questions in a manner that is understandable."
