I have already recommended Dr. Cantrell to several folks here in McMullen Cove. Not only is he a fine surgeon, but he listens to everything the patient says (or asks) and has definitive answers.

My family doctor recommended Dr. Cantrell for my rotator cuff problems. It turned out I needed surgery. Excellently made my recovery is going well, and if I ever have to go back (I hope never), Dr. Cantrell will be my guy! TOC is top-notch, and Dr. Cantrell is a gem in their crown. Thank You for the superb job you did!

Dr Cantrell came into the office and greeted me with a smile behind the mask. He talked and he listened. He met and far exceeded my expectations of him. I have had several people to tell me how polite and caring he is and their descriptions were spot on!
