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.

Dr. Cantrell is an amazing doctor. He changed my sisters life in so many ways. He operated on her knee and now everything is perfect. Thanks to him and his staff there is no more pain for her.

Dr Cantrell is the most dismissive arrogant doctor I have ever encountered. He acts like he's paying you for his service. He immediately walked in the room and said there is nothing I can do for you continue doing home physically therapy. I have a bad knee with a meniscus tear. Since my last appointment I had developed swelling and fluid accumulation in my knee. Before even accessing my knee or greeting me he tells me what he cannot do. He was out like a thief in the night. I will never return and I am under the care of a great doctor at Sports Med. Dr Cantrell is rude and based off the comments from other reviews this is who he is. If you don't like people find something else to do. This is not volunteer work. His staff was great.

17 year old child is unable to run 6 months post surgery. We didn't get questions answered. My child has a soccer scholarship at div 1 school that we are likely going to lose now. We are heart broken. We have no confidence he even did the surgery correctly. My 17 year old is devastated,

He and some of his staff are very rude. Not helpful at all my son cracked his wrist at school and the ER doctor show me and my son were the crack was on the X-ray on the day it happened. Then a couple of days later Dr. Cantrell and his nurse told us that there was nothing wrong with his wrist. And refused to write a school execute for my son for the few day we had to wait for the appointment.
