I've been with Intercoastal for 0ver 10 years and Dr Cantero is one of the warmest caring physician in the country, having lived in 5 regions and at age 72 I feel qualified to judge. What I love is no waiting & no rushing you out the door. Dr Cantero is full of compassion & listens to what you have to say while taking his time to make sure you fully understand his answers He's everything your looking for in a good Dr. So don't wait go ahead call him and see for yourself

It took close to two months to see Dr Cantero, but it was well worth the wait. He took a lot of time with me answering all of my and my wife's questions. He had me do two tests that the hospital could not do without outlandish costs. Using the most up-to-date equipment, it was so easy to do and so inexpensive. He was very friendly as an added bonus.

Dr. Cantero has some of the best bedside manner, in other words very friendly, I have ever seen. He was prompt in seeing me after my vitals as well as understanding the issues I was coming in for and what medication would work best for me. If anyone is looking for a neurologist I would recommend him immediately. He listens to problems actually enters what you are conveying to him into the medical records. Great at explaining treatment to those who are knowledgeable or new to medical treatment

I had an accident and subsequently had a number of weird symptoms. I went to see another neurologist who had unfortunately no idea what was going on. After a few frustrating weeks I went to see Dr Cantero who promptly found the reason for my symptoms and pain. Dr Cantero is a very friendly gentleman who explained things well. Thanks a lot Dr Cantero!!

Today. I have seen to Dr. Cantero: Dr. Cantero was very courteous and professional. He explained everything about my pains and answered any questions that I had. A caring, sincere, and empathetic attitude. He made me feel relaxed, well-cared for and confident. He was very down-to-earth. I would highly recommend him to others.

Dr Cantero was not willing to hear about the patient's dangerously angry outbursts from his wife. His only line of questioning the patient related to memory. Had to find a doctor who understands the behavioral changes that occur as a result of Alzheimers and is experienced treating the whole person not just the physical brain of the patient.
