Dr. Cantu was great and i am only sorry I did not find him 5 years ago. Going thru stage 4 breast cancer I need a medical staff that understands what I am going thru and I believe I have found that in this office.

Dr. Cantu, not only did he answer my questions and eased my concerns but took his time with me as a patient. My IUD placement was 10X's less painful than my last IUD placement with another OBGYN. He was great and cared for my comfort. Very satisfied!
