Friendly, attentive and is very knowledgable. Listens closely and explains processes completely. I am comfortable that I am getting expert care for my seizure disorder.

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.

He really gets to know you and listens to what you are feeling. He asks questions to get to the root of your problem. He takes his time and I didn't feel like he was rushing. Very kind and caring.
