Dr. Cantu is the most amazing understanding and compassionate doctor I've had the pleasure of dealing with through the last 13 years of having a severe incurable injury. He is very thorough in his explanation and works hard to insure that I am fully aware of my current problems, possible future problems, as-well-as my options for managing them to the best of human ability.
