Absolutely a poor excuse of a Doctor's office! (and I work in a Doctor's office) I have never expierenced a Drs office that was so unorganized and unprepared.

Avoid at all cost. Scheduling is a joke unless you wish to wait on her for 2 hours after your appointment time. Bedside manner is far less than professional and doesn't appear to want tone share information.

Do NOT go see her!! She diagnosed me with MS when I didn't. Per my second opinion (another neurologist), my MRI was clean & had no signs of MS (viewed the same exact MRI that Dr. Cantrell used to diagnosed me). She doesn't know how to answer your question or explain your tests - all she does is perform tests after tests. Because of her, I have 2 MRI, spinal lumbar puncture (spinal tap), steroid IV shots and numerous blood tests. Please stay away from her!!!

I went through quite a few test to see what was causing my migraines however she was able to determine the cause from those test. I am now on medication she prescribed and so far that medicine is working great.

I've been going to Dr. Cantrell for several years and I find her very knowledgeable, polite yet friendly. I always have wonderful report with her. Thank you Dr. Cantrell for all you have done for me..!!

I had the very worst experience with this Dr. I found her to be degrading and rude. She talked at me instead of with me. I came in to see her and she diagnosed me with epilepsy, which other colleagues concur she does mistakenly, and she put me on hard core anti epileptic medications that lead to a plethora of other problems. The issue is I am not epileptic. I have vestibular migraine but she was not open to exploring other possibilities. She literally stood on a rolled in pedestal .
