Dr Cantrell and his team were incredible. Sometimes, I would have to wait a bit, but I understand that emergencies come up. They were worth the wait!!!!

Rotator Cuff repair. All went well and recovery/rehab was much better and quicker than what I had read about online. I was impressed with Dr. Cantrell, his staff and the care I received from them.

Non serious injury, quick analysis and sent me to physical therapy. Short and sweet to the point. Workers comp injury and I was treated fairly and equally in my mind.

I just had my first and last appointment with this doctor. I must say this was the creepiest and most dismissive doctor I have ever met. Of all the doctors I have met, I've never met one quite like Dr. Cantrell. Dr. Cantrell was unable to communicate any recommendation for treatment. He made it quite clear during our conversation, three times in fact, that he is a surgeon. Dr. Cantrell was new to me having been a patient of Dr. Goodson. Dr. Cantrell expressed his dissatisfaction with Dr. Goodson and his treatment plan, but was unable to communicate why he felt it should not be followed. There was no opportunity at all to discuss risk-benefit of how he would do things differently. I am very disappointed in Dr. Cantrell's behavior during this visit and will seek another doctor. Again, just absolutely creepy for a doctor to not engage the patient in the conversation...

He treats workman's comp patients like trash while the rich (paying)Jones Valley crowd gives him glowing reviews.Read several reviews and you'll see the trend!

Dr. Cantrell is very straight to the point and lets you know when you start rambling. I did not like this at first but his job is to get the correct diagnosis, not to be your friend. Excellent surgeon, scars barely visible 2 months after surgery.
