Rebecca E. Cantone, M.D.

  • Assistant Professor of Family Medicine, School of Medicine


Dr. Becca Cantone is a family physician. She focuses on whole person care, working to address physical and mental health concerns together. She is especially interested in providing care to populations who do not have enough options for good medical care, such as the LGBTQ community and those seeking help for substance use disorders.

Dr. Cantone enjoys the continuity of patient care and building long-term therapeutic relationships with patients. She loves seeing multiple family members and caring for the entire family to better understand the full situation affecting one’s life and health. She is in clinic half time, works in the hospital setting 8 weeks a year, and helps train learners in medicine both in the clinic and the classroom.

Outside of work, Dr. Cantone enjoys hiking, eating good food (and running to burn it off), doing puzzles and spending time with her family and dogs.
