I do not have a primary care doctor, Dr Cantrell was my doctor years ago but i moved away and just moved back. I was in a car accident a week ago and i called to make an appointment because i am in severe pain. His receptionist was very rude. She told me that he couldn't see me because he don't handle car accidents for one unless i am a patient, then proceeded to tell me i am no longer considered. patient because it has been a long time since he saw me. She was pretty much telling me my best option was to die in that car accident. My daughter goes to Cantrell and she is the one that suggested him because she said he really seems to care. I can't wait to tell her how rude the office staff was and that i was refused medical care. I have insurance too, not medicaid, one of the first questions the receptionist asked me. Shaking my head.
