Great Doctor. He was very kind,. He asked what happened & where my pain was. He explained my X-rays and performed exam in my shoulder. He recommended another test to determine next steps. All while reassuring me that it will get better.

I had an early appointment so there was no problem parking. Only had to wait a couple of minutes in the main lobby area, after checking in on the kiosk. After X-rays, an assistant came in first to talk about my problem and give me some options. Then the doctor came in and talked and gave me his advice on treatment and possible MRI evaluation. Was not a bad visit at all.

Dr Cantrell took his time, was not in a rush and explained his diagnosis in simplistic terms. I was able to ask questions and he listened and responded without me feeing like he wanted to move on. I appreciate that. He was also on time which means a lot. Everyone’s time is important.

I appreciate the fact that, even though I would be a candidate for shoulder replacement, Dr. Cantrell offers solutions for delaying the surgery, including natural alternatives for reducing inflammation in my shoulder. He gave good advice and assured me that the joint damage is not causing other problems, such as damaging the rotator cuff or other soft tissue.

I got an appointment within a week, which is almost unheard of for a specialist. It's early as far as a full diagnosis, but tests and injection were done immediately on first visit, no delay. My issue is getting investigated rapidly!
