Dr. Geoffrey Kanter received his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in 1987 under the neuropsychological tutelage of Dr. Jeffrey Barth; he was also trained in the Child and Family Systems model developed by the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic. He was the first neuropsychologist hired for the NeuroCare Residential Traumatic Brain Injury Program in Concord, California. He then was hired as a neuropsychologist for the Mills-Peninsula Hospital, San Mateo neurorehabilitation unit where he eventually was promoted to Psychology Manager. He then moved in 1991 to Sarasota to become the Director of Psychology for HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital.

In 1997, he developed the position of Director of Psychology for Sarasota Memorial Hospital, instituting a large behavioral medicine program for hospital inpatients. These services continued after he founded Comprehensive MedPsych Systems in 1998, initially with a staff of 4 psychologists. Over the next 20 years, CMPS grew to become one of the largest private multi-disciplinary behavioral medicine groups in the US with approximately 15 offices/practice locations in Florida, Indiana, and Alabama with approximately 85 clinical staff including psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, neuropsychologists, psychologists, Post-doc neuropsychology residents, social workers and counselors.


In March of 2018, CMPS was acquired by Refresh Mental Health, Inc. based out of Jacksonville, Florida, securing a far larger pool of financial, personnel and intellectual resources comprised of 20+ mental health companies in 15+ different states with over 800+ clinicians. The vast majority of facilities are focused on outpatient mental health with the same vision and values as we have always promoted. Comprehensive MedPsych Systems' name and brand will continue with Dr. Kanter at the helm of the Refresh-CMPS operations with plans for future acquisitions in Florida and the surrounding regions.

Dr. Kanter is a civil forensic neuropsychologist, double board-certified in adult and pediatric neuropsychology and is the Executive Director of the American Board of Professional Neuropsychology.
