    Dr. Cantor is very knowledgable and able to answer my questions. She is also understanding of my issues and able to discuss them with me. My only reservation is that she is in the clinic only 2 days/week, so it is sometimes difficult to get an appointment when needed.

    Having Shingles is very scary.Dr. Cantor was appropriate, however she didn't examine my arm rash of shingles very closely. I guess there is no need to if the sores are healing and we both agreed on that.

    Very competent, professional demeanor and great

  • Feb 11, 2019

    Amy was friendly, informative and communicative during the procedure. I forgot to ask how long to expect for my body to settle back down - everything sounded simple and straightforward. But even light cramping and some emotionality for the following 4-5 days would have been good to have a heads up about. Tough when all bodies are different, but that’s my feedback :)

  • Jan 21, 2019

    I really like Dr. Canter. The only reason I wouldn't completely recommend her is that I know that she is not taking new patients and anyone I recommended but not be able to get in to see her. also She's not. Working as much as she is too. She is doing research part of the time. That's my Olathe plank. Don't even a complaint. Okay. Thanks.
