Dr. Kantola has a huge chip on his shoulder. he has no sympathy, empathy or concern for his patients mental health. his bedside manner in non existent. he doesn't understand that the people he treats are human beings with feelings, concerns, worries. I am appalled.

Rude, does not listen to patient. Arrogant and no bedside manner. I had to have a valve replaced that he knew was leaking several years ago. He never followed up and now my heart is permanently damaged. I would not recommend this Dr.

Dr Kantola is my mother's doctor and I was very impressed with him. He does have bedside manors. Mom had emergency open heart surgery last December and Dr. Kantola was great.
