    Horrible bedside manner! Arrogant! Took my 2 daughters because we needed a new pediatrician. He made both girls feel very uncomfortable due to his rudeness. We left during the visit.

    I have been seeing Dr Cantorna for over 18 years. He is intelligent, to the point, and has always worked with me to do what is best for my health. He has diagnosed me with pneumonia where others missed it, and is a all around good doctor. He is blunt, and doesn't mince words. I want a doctor who actually listens to my concernss, and in turn is brutally honest with me, if this is not your cup of teas, he is not your man.

    He is a fast talker and appears slightly arrogant, so some people may not like his attitude. that being said, I trust his opinion...and don't mind the attitude...so I consider him a good doctor who speaks his mind.
