Very very difficult to get in contact with the necessary people, whether it is a question for the Dr Cantwell, or contacting the nurse about lab results, or just scheduling an appoitnment. I waited on hold on the phone for 28 min, just to cancel an appointment. They act like their time is so much more valuable than yours. Once I finally got in, the interacitons with Dr. Cantwell were positive, but it wasn't worth it!~

I absolutely love Dr cantwell. She is so nice and so easy to talk to. She made my physical and pelvic exam very comfortable by talking and asking questions about general things and family. I definitely recommend her

She is caring, thoughtful, and willing to listen to your concerns. My visits have never felt rushed. When we were talking about our birth plan she supported us and stated that it was our delivery and she's just there to make sure everyone stays happy and healthy. The staff is amazing. Julie, one of the nurses is extremely positive and upbeat! My husband and I love Dr Cantwell and her team.

Seems busy and rushed. Misses a lot of important information - including things in her own records that she has done in the past! I had to change doctors after my 1st pregnancy. I also have a friend who experienced similar problems with her care, or lack there of, which caused her additional pain. Cantwell can be good, but I feel recently through my own experience, and others that she has become over-extended and does not fully listen to your needs/issues. It's almost like her way or the highway
