I felt as if all my questions were answered fully. I did not have a long wait and did not feel like I was being rushed out or wasting the doctor's time. She was also very informative and knowledgeable.

January 16, 2020 11:31 AM

This visit was excellent and I have a very comfortable relationship with Dr. Cantu. I trust her and will continue with her.

January 16, 2020 11:31 AM

The bad experience that I had was trying to get the orders for my blood work tests set up. I had messaged on the Advocate system to Dr. Cantu, and called a couple of times as the order had not been put through, and these were to be done before my visit so we could discuss the results. The request for the blood work orders was not making it to Dr. Cantu until my second phone call and complaint. It's not fun going to the lab and finding that the orders are not there.

January 13, 2020 5:05 PM

Dr Cantu is the best. We will be following her to her new office.

January 13, 2020 5:05 PM

My husband was having trouble getting the lab orders so he could have his blood tests and PSA all at the same time (one stick). The office was not very helpful in dealing with this and Dr Cantu did not get the message he had sent to her.

January 10, 2020 5:09 PM

long wait time to be seen

December 27, 2019 12:31 PM

Very very good. My dr. explained lots time. She is very good listen to our health issues.

December 27, 2019 12:31 PM

No bad experience at all.

December 14, 2019 2:03 PM

she is very thorough

December 14, 2019 2:03 PM

very good

November 27, 2019 9:29 AM

Love Dr. Cantu! I feel I can easily talk to her and that she listens. Best doctor I've had. We talked about my options and was very considerate and helpful in deciding what to do.

November 25, 2019 10:57 PM

Haven't had any issues with Dr Cantu, she always makes sure to ask if there's anything else that needs attention or if I have any questions. She seems to genuinely enjoy her job and cares about the patients needs.

November 23, 2019 10:01 AM

The nurse or technician that first saw me was very helpful. Dr. Cantu listen to my needs.

November 23, 2019 10:01 AM

My experience was good!

November 23, 2019 5:57 AM

the doctor was great. very nice and easy to talk with. she spent time listening to my problem and trying to help. I would recommend her to anyone.

November 21, 2019 11:21 AM

Very generic, not thorough, DIDN'T even look in my mouth, eyes, feel my abdomen, check prostate, examine skin, basic stuff.

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

The doctor was great. Great listener and very caring and spends lots of time. I have a problem with the office people though because they never call back with results They also do not let you speak with the doctor when you asked. They took two weeks to even provide my pharmacy an alternate prescription When my pharmacy called them saying that the one that doctor recommended was not available. I also have a big problem listen to the after hours voice message that says that you may have to pay if you speak with the doctor after hours. It is a scare tactic and it could prevent someone who really needs help from calling . We should be able to speak with a doctor on call if we feel it is needed with no fear of being charged! I've never had this threatening message and greedy policy at other doctors .

November 17, 2019 11:00 PM

Love the doctor but the office staff needs improvement and they need to follow up quickly and properly with test results and RX requests and also let you speak with the doctor at no charge if needed.

November 15, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr Cantu is just an absolute professional with an incredible manner!!

November 13, 2019 11:00 PM

While she ordered blood work and someone called with results, there was no follow-up on next steps. Situation is still the same with no resolution. I am not better and am frustrated. There were no next steps.

November 13, 2019 11:00 PM

Love my physician, her associate X & all the staff at this location.

November 11, 2019 3:18 PM

My experience with my provider is excellent! She is the BEST!

October 5, 2019 7:00 PM

She is very accommodating as well as the nurse. Dr. Cantu listens and really takes time explaining her diagnosis. Great thing about her is she made a follow up call to ensure and monitor my treatment and progress. Excellent Doctor!

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Cantu is better tjan I expected. Dr X was nice but always in a rush. I believe Dr Cantu truly cares.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

good listener , caring

July 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Cantu asked to see her 2x a year. My neurologist (for MS) sees me 2x a year. I feel I'm in excellent care w/both of them.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Cantu is awesome!

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

This provider was very helpful and was excellent in answering my questions. Problem solved.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

I did the early walk in. arrived at 7:01 and was taken back in less than 10 minutes. The girls at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. I was seen by Haydee Cantu. She was so great. listened to what I had to say and took great care of me. Explained and answered all my questions.

July 12, 2019 7:00 PM

I always feel comfortable going to my appts. with Dr. Cantu. I know she will take the time to answer any questions I have, ask important questions I may not have thought of, and offer smart solutions or advice. I appreciate that she considers both easier things like changing lifestyle and making sure your foods are providing necessary vitamins as well as medications when necessary. I already have recommended her to friends.

July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

I absolutely love this doctor & her staff. Extremely pleasant, understanding & always willing to answer any questions. I've NEVER said this about a dr. before. I hope she never leaves!

June 28, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent right from walking in the door.

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I love Dr Cantu. she listens thoroughly and answers questions in depth. I find her ideas about my care to be appropriate and I don't feel she prescribes

June 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent annual wellness visit.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

For the care both myself and my children receive, who also see Dr. Cantu, it is always a 10 out of 10.

Very grateful to have her as my family's doctor.

September 2, 2018 7:00 PM

awesome doc--really respects patients

September 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Haydee Cantu is very thorough and keeps me well informed of what is going on and why.

August 31, 2018 7:00 PM

extremely happy with the doctor and nurse. receptionist were very short and not to friendly. very disappointed in the time it took to get lab results back. I called 3 times before the nurse called back with results, each time person answering the call said the results were back but needed to be signed off and would call me.

August 6, 2018 7:00 PM

The only problem I had was with a blood draw. After trying to get blood for 3 times with no success, I finally asked if I could go to another facility in town that specialized in drawing blood. I know from past experience that it isn't me; it's the person drawing the blood.

July 27, 2018 7:00 PM

doctor is very easy to talk to on any subject

July 26, 2018 7:00 PM

I have had a good relationship with Dr. Cantu and have elected to stay with her even though she has opened her practice about 25 miles away from my home. My wife has also elected to see her and shows confidence in her.

July 24, 2018 7:00 PM

this is why I drive an hour to see this office I live in a different state. that's how much I respect this office and it's dr and care providers.

July 22, 2018 7:00 PM

We first met Dr. Cantu when she was finishing her medical education. We have followed her to her new job in Algonquin. Make sure that her name is listed on the drop down box when we want to leave a message for her on the portal!!! I don't want to bother Dr. X!!!
