I had an amazing experience with Dr. Cantu. I loved how he met with me in his office to discuss what I was visiting for prior to putting me in the room. Will absolutely continue to use him as my lady doctor.

Dr. Cantu is THE BEST! He saw me through all three of my children and ALWAYS took the very best care of me. I will drive down to see whenever I need to see him from my new town up state.
Mar 17, 2022
There were no delays and I was in and out of my visit with great time.
Mar 17, 2022
The receptionist had an attitude. This is the first yr I have this sort of insurance, where you need a referral to see the doctor for anything other than just an annual. The receptionist was rude at explaining it and kept telling me over and over that if I wanted to ask anything to the doctor I was going to be charged. I wasn't prepared with my medical card to pay so I just refrained from asking the question I really needed to ask. However; Dr. Cantu is THE BEST! I am moving away this summer but will make the drive to Weslaco or Harlingen anytime I need to see him.

Physician had a medical student shadowing (I think). The individual was not introduced to me upon entering the room. I said hi but the individual did not introduce himself and no one asked if I was okay with having an unknown person in the exam room.

I wish I knew beforehand what tests and procedures they have planned for each prenatal appointment. Every time there's a blood test or something, I don't know it's happening until that very moment, which doesn't give me time to think over it and discuss with my husband beforehand whether it's something we need to pay for (ex. Spina bifida, genetic blood test.etc.) I feel like these tests and labs and sprung up on me without any advance notice/ heads up, which feels unfair to me, as someone who would want to do at least a little research to understand what it is and why I may need it- especially considering the added costs when it isn't covered by insurance.
Feb 2, 2022
Time with the doctor is extremely short, and typically if I bring up a symptom or ailment his first response is what he can prescribe me. I'd rather discuss why I'm feeling that way and have a more comprehensive understanding rather than immediately just jumping to a prescription.
Feb 2, 2022
Always a really long wait time- almost seems like appointment time is unnecessary

I've heard great things about Dr. Cantu and that was the reason I chose to be seen by him. I had a cesarean almost 2 years ago and wanted to try VBAC. I heard Dr. Cantu was great with his VBAC patients so I'm hopeful after hearing great things.

The staff is extremely good, they are nica, caring, they are truly awesome! All of them!!! Including the doctor, secretaries, nurses. I have always feel valued there. The hours of operation are very convinient for me. However, every appointment it takes at least an hour and a half in the waiting room to before I get to be seen.
