Ratings for Dr. Guilherme Cantuaria
Post surgical care is a failure at this office. Lack of support and concern for patients following surgery and chemo is at an all time low at this office. Staff never return calls, never receive faxes or emails and always on vacation. Take care of your patients after surgery. I know, the surgery is what gets you paid. . . but the folks need your help after surgery!
I had emergency surgery in 2001 with Dr. Cantuaria. I feel as if he saved my life. He talked to us about what could happen and asked what we'd like done in different scenarios. He was wonderful with my follow up visits. I would not hesitate to trust this man with another surgery if needed. We was my God send.
I've never not been seen by the surgeon in a post-op appointment!! Beware you must request to see him! This office says they take a team approach, the problem is you get a different answer to your question depending on who you talk to.. A team is supposed to communicate. They seem good at surgery, however if you need any care after that, they act as if you are a nuisance, and just want to be rid of you. The front desk staff is one of the rudest and most uncaring I have ever delt with. Take care of yourself and go elsewhere....
After reading the reviews online, I was a little uneasy about being sent to him for surgery. All I can say is, those people must have met with a different doctor. I was very happy with my experience with Dr. Cantuaria. He was very knowledgeable, and I appreciated that he gave me the facts as he saw them. In my pre-op appointment, he explained the procedure, told me what he expected, and made sure I understood the worst case scenario. He was very personable and made me feel completely at ease. My only complaint was that he did a lot of travelling and the schedulers were not always careful to check that he would be in town. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a straightforward doctor and an excellent surgeon.
If you need test result back with a normal period of time do not use this Dr. I have tried multiple times to contact them for my results to only get voicemail. Their specialty is oncology. With that being said followup should be necessary in all cases.
Wish I had read reviews. After bad experience, looked up license,started med school at 17years old!Somehow, he completed 3 year oncology/surgery fellowship in miami and AT THE SAME time completed a 3 year PHd in Brazil. Huh? What out because he tries charm, but once you see through it, insecurity, and I hate to say it, but cruelty. He's practiced in 3 states in 12 years. Be careful.
