He has been the best doctor I've ever seen. I absolutely love that man. He genuinely cares for his patients and has helped me better than any Doctor ever has!

Dr. Kanwal is a very rude doctor. He doesn't care about his patients. And god forbid if your overweight. Only thing Kanwal cares about it money.

he wanted to give me shots in my back, i let him do one and the next day couldn't move, it made it so much worse, you go in with a genuine complaint and genuine problems ( i have endometriosis) and they act like all u want is pain pills, which is as far from the truth as you can get because i won't touch them, not even when my kids were born...i just wanted to know what was going on and couldnt get a straight answer and kept getting sent for all kinds of tests with no answers or results, am currently looking for a new doctor that will actually listen to what i have to say

I go to Kenwal right now, and I have been looking for a new doctor from some time now. I just dont know who to go. I have a lot of health problems, so I dont want to change just to any doctor thats going to end up being just like Kanwal. If anybody knows of a good doctor that will listen to you, and dont think just because you are on pain med that you are abuseing them in any way. Some ppl do need help to relive the pain just to make it through the day. Thanks

Coeburn_gal,I think you are seeing the wrong kind of doctor. You might find some answers with a gynocologist. Just saying....

I see a gyno. once a year. There's really nothing that a gyno. can do except send me to a regular physician (or so he said). It's way easier to get an appt with a regular doctor than it is with the gyno. considerin that I'm not pregnant. The gyno's around here are waaay to busy. The endometriosis bothers my lower back and hips more so than it does anything else, hence the regular doctor, LOL. I just need to find someone who actually knows what they're doing. He prescribed me Esgic (which is used to treat headaches) for my back, because he said that I was taking too many Goody's (I can easily go through a 50 ct box in about a week and a half), and I didn't want a narcotic so I guess he really didn't know what to do. He also wrote me Celexa (for depression) and when I told him it made me dizzy, he took me off of it completely instead of trying me on something else. I want to find a doctor that's not going to automatically assume that I want pain/nerve medication just because I'm young with back problems and depression. I know that there are alot of people out there that just go for the pills but I am far from being one of them. I'd just like to get back to feeling "normal" again.

dr.kanwal is getting up in age,cant even hear what your telling him about your illness.. every nurse or doctor thinks everyone is after pills!I feel patient privalige should be kept between doctor and patient.not talked about with other people.Give your opinion is this legal?Or should a lawsuit be pending?

LOL, wow, I would not have believed Dr. Kanwal was still practicing if I hadn't come across this. I remember seeing him 30 years ago as a teenager. My parents still swear by him today, 1 shot and done. I'll never forget my mom taking my brother & I to see Doc Kanwal when we first moved to Coeburn in the 70's. My mom got sooooo mad, when he rounded that door, my little brother & I started giggling out of control. We'd never seen anything like him. A memory I'll never forget. Thanks for the laugh guys.

I have been a patient of his for two years and feel he has been a god send to me...i have a lot of health problems, including being overweight and he has told me like it is "losing weight would help many of my health problems", which I know is true. I, also, receive the injections from him for migraines, ankle pain, knee pain and back pain...i suppose everyone is different, but they really help me very much. He does have a unique attitude, but don't most doctors?
