Dr.Cantando performed a pituitary mass removal operation on my husband just the other day. I can't say enough good things about this doctor & his team! Pre-surgery, he was so informative, so professional, so personal. As a family, we felt we knew exactly what was going on, what to expect, & what were the possible outcomes. We feel blessed that Dr. Cantando was the doctor on call when we entered the emergency room, & that he ended up performing the brain surgery. Have only good things to say.

Dr. Cantando did an Urgent ACDF of my cervical spine. Very good bed side manner and compassionate care. Even assisted me in receiving services my insurance would not cover.

I had a level one cervicalnfusion done by dr. Csntando. I had gotten four additional opinions before I decided to officially chose him. He was so great at communicating everything and made me feel very comfortable with the surgery. He is extremely knowledgeable and he was very professional.

My 85 year old father had three appointments with the Dr. the first time they called and said we don't want the Dr. sitting around an hour for your father so we were left with no other choice but to cancel as we could not make it easier on the Dr. Next appointment canceled for surgery Today my father had an appointment at 10:30 they called at 9:45 and said canceled due to surgery. I said my father is on his way he horrific office no compassion whatsoever
