"After four previous back surgeries I was diagnosed with Failed Back Syndrome; simply stated it means my prior surgeries had a better-than-even possibility they did more harm than good. I was in pain and holding tight to a walker. “Dr. K” looked at my MRI and we sat and talked about my options, my lifestyle, my age, and even my hobbies. I soon realized this man was wicked smart, caring, and genuinely concerned with me as a person and not just another patient. I liked him. We (and it was a decision we both made) agreed on a spinal fusion. This surgery was a lot more involved with a longer recovery time than I had previously. But Dr. K talked me through it all...what would happen and what to expect. A road map. Now, just over a year later - I am now up and walking, driving, and looking at travel options again. His staff is professional, personable, efficient, and understanding. I cannot praise them enough. Perhaps my best review is simply … Dr. Kantrowitz gave me back my life."

"Very involved in my situation, carefully assembled team as needed for complex findings, takes the time to explain, great staff. Great results, better than I honestly expected. I consider him brilliant, consider myself so fortunate for his having accepted me as his patient. I highly recommend Dr. Kantrowitz and know that if anyone can resolve your problem it will be him."

"He is the most intelligent and thorough Doctor I have ever met . Dr. takes the time which is a rarity these days. His calm demeanor exudes confidence. He replaced my father’s Medtronic shunt with the new Ascelap M Blu shunt. "

"Hi, My name is Myriam, I am a 36 year old female, and a patient of Doctor Allen Kantrowitz, who has literally saved my life. I started having first symptoms about five months ago. I felt that the entire left side of my body was asleep, and step by step it was becoming paralyzed. After an IRM and first appointments with his fellow doctors, I was diagnosed with a huge brain tumor. Doctor Kantrowitz delivered that devastating news to me with a lot of compassion and humanity. That kind of neurosurgery is considered amongst the most complicated, most complex and exposed to high risk. Dr. Krantowitz succeeded without any complications. The entire team and all fellow doctors who treated me, agreed and called this a true miracle. I have no physical nor mental constraints and didn't suffer any side effects from surgery or anything. I am feeling actually super well. I am infinitly grateful to Dr. Kantrowitz for having given me a second chance in my life. I also would like to express my gratitude ...
to the personnel and nursing team of the Mount Sinaï Hospital. This infrastructure, facilities and nursing care team is amazing! I couldn't have been taken care of any better. A BIG THANK YOU to Dr. Allen Krantowitz. What an amazing doctor and outstanding surgeon! "

"I had surgery to remove a large tumor that had wrapped around my pituitary gland and pressed against my optic nerve. The surgery was urgent and Dr. Kantrowitz was able to get me in during the time when the COVID-19 pandemic was raging in South Florida. I was treated like I was a VIP by Dr. Kantrowitz and his staff, and five months later I am feeling great and looking forward to my 6-month follow-up appointment one month from now."
